Fordite earrings E 240


Categories: ,


Fordite is paint from Ford motor company, pre 1972. It was shaved off the walls & pipes of the paint booths then mostly tossed into dumps. Thank goodness some of it was saved by workers & then found itself into the hands of jewelers. Each color is a different car, with this pair having a large red color in the center. Bands of grays, white and black are around the red. Overall size is about 1 1/2″ x 9/16”. We set the Fordite into a plain sterling silver bezel with sterling silver french wires. Fairly light weight to wear.
