Sterling Silver and Motor Agate Fordite Necklace #2262
Lapidary cut, multi-layered Motor Agate (Fordite) cabochon set in solid sterling silver. The salvaged and repurposed enamel material set in this piece began as a hunk of cured auto paint, derived from many layers of overspray that was created as a byproduct of the industrial process of spray painting cars!
This fordite piece is a beautiful, low domed Type 3 Motor Agate cabochon: Color on color layers with opaque and metallic layers.
This lovely cab has some organic channeling pockets on the face that are a natural formation made during it's creation. It is set in a cast sterling silver setting, with a fully closed-backed bezel, that has been given our signature mini-hammered finish.
The Chain: 20''(unisex), heavy 3mm sterling silver snake chain with capped ends and lobster clasp. This piece is on the heavier side, and would be nice for anyone who likes that.
Pendant dimensions from top of bail: 33mm x 20mm.
Hand signed on reverse.
