Fordite Pendant Necklace
This variant is currently sold out
American-Made Motor Agate... The bright, jewel-like layers of Fordite are comprised of thousands of layers of automobile paint. Drop by drop, each layer represents a different vehicle as it passed through the paint booth in the factory. Heated to hundreds of degrees, the layers fused together to form one of the most beautiful and completely accidental man-made composites.
This 18-inch (~45cm) Sterling Silver necklace features a custom-crafted piece of Fordite. The Fordite measures approximately 1 1/3 inches (~35mm). Colors and patterns will vary widely, so each piece is sure to be unique.
- Multicolor - Variety of colors, including blue, red, yellow, silver, black, and others.
- New! Black & Silver - Primarily Black, Silver, and White. May have patches of Blue and Red but the dominant theme is monochrome.

The cable-style chain runs through a Sterling Silver bail and can be removed or replaced if desired. The complete necklace comes in a decorative box and includes a small information card about the specimens.
The process used to produce this specimen is similar to the method used to create the Third Edition and large Fordite add-ons. Beautiful to look at, Fordite also provides a look into the history of automobile manufacturing. The Third Edition Companion Guide includes a detailed article on the history of Fordite.
