This pendant features a fabulous Fordite* cabochon with a heart shaped pattern, hence the name! The colours are black, grey, silver, white, gold, blue, red and green, all mixed up adding to the gorgeousness of this bit of car paint! The setting is kept simple and I have added a few 9ct gold granules to pick up on the gold colour in the centre of the heart, plus a couple of silver granules to flank them. The bail is again simple and the pendant hangs on a 1.6mm thick matte sterling silver snake chain. A modern matte brushed sterling silver pendant with a bit of fun in the way of Fordite – or car paint!
The pendant measures approximately 30mm from top of the bail to bottom of the granules, and 17mm at its widest point.
I have a selection of Fordite cabochons (as well as various gemstones etc.) that I can use to make commissions, so if you would like to have a piece made for you I can send you photos of those and discuss your ideas.
*Fordite is made up from cut layers of compacted motor car paint that has hardened in the spray booths of old Ford car factories. Every cabochon of this material is a one off, so truly unique and very special. Perfect present for someone car crazy!
