Sterling and Motor Agate Fordite Necklace and Earring Set #2090
Lapidary cut, multi-layered Motor Agate (Fordite) cabochons set in sterling silver. The salvaged and repurposed enamel material set in these pieces began as a hunks of cured paint overspray that were harvested as a byproduct of the industrial auto painting process.
These pieces display 3 beautiful, matched Type 2 Motor Agate cabochons, with repeating color layers, cut from one piece of fordite, in a lovely art deco styled set.
The cabs are cut flat to low domed, revealing the classic woodgrain pattern in this material. The silver settings are open-backed, fancy gallery bezels, and the earrings are hung from locking sterling leverback hooks. An 18" sterling silver round box chain with lobster clasp closure is included.
Pendant dimensions from top of bail: 44.5 x 19.6mm Hand Signed.
Earring dimentions: 40.8 x 14.5mm
