Fordite Jewelry

1 item left

Re-purposed automotive paint made into exquisite jewelry.

Solid Fordite cabochon, known locally as Detroit Agate. Not an agate at all, though, merely a happy accident! The original material was created many years ago at the Ford Rouge Plant just outside of Detroit, Michigan.

Layer upon layer, paint over-spray built up on metal racks that transported new car bodies through the paint shop, and into the oven, where each coat was baked hard.

Ring: sterling silver back, size 6.5

Each piece is unique in shape and color. No two pieces are alike!
