£125.00

This colourful drop shaped fordite pendant features a smooth cabochon of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver. Fordite is warm to touch and light weight so this pendant could comfortably be worn all day and the setting is open backed so the pendant can be worn either way round. This material has a particularly bright colour palette, the ‘front’ has an swirly pattern of red, green, blue, orange and others on a white ground, the back has diagonal stripes in red, white, yellow and green. Some of the stripes are metallic and sparkle in the sunshine. Measures 35 by 21mm excluding bail and comes with a silver chain in a gift box (you could easily put it on a leather cord).

This vibrant pendant features a drop of fordite bezel set in sterling silver, the setting is open backed so the pendant can be worn either way round. The ‘front’ has an swirly pattern of red, green, blue, orange and others on a white ground, the back has diagonal stripes in red, white, yellow and green. Some of the stripes are metallic and sparkle in the sunshine.
So what is fordite? Its is layers of paint that built up on the surrounds of paint booths at car factories, as each car was painted a new colour would be added leading to the wacky palette. The material was repeatedly passed through the curing ovens and eventually had to be removed – some of this then left the factories and ended up in the hands of jewellers who cut and polished it to show the wonderful patterns and colours. I have compared this material with old colour charts and I’m fairly certain that it came from a Chrysler (Dodge/ Plymouth) production line in 1970 (they are in no way associated with my jewellery though) as it contains some of the rare hi-impact paint colours. I cut this material myself and you can see some of the rough in the photos – this is not included in the sale.
Measures 35 by 21mm excluding bail and comes with an 18inch silver chain in a gift box (you could easily put it on a leather cord or chunkier chain).

Shipping Policy

I aim to ship as quickly as possible normally within 24 hours. For the UK I use either tracked 24 or special delivery which should arrive the next working day whilst for international orders I used international tracked or signed services. International post is subject to delays at the moment, sometimes lengthy due to customs, but since it is tracked you can follow its progress around the world. Buyers are responsible for any customs fees but if you contact me in advance I can help you work out how much these will be.

I am happy to ship gifts direct to the recipient with a message so they know who its from but you will need to specify the recipients address at checkout. I will only ship to the address specified during checkout.

Please see The British Craft House's Shipping policy

Refund Policy

I'm more than happy to refund an order if it turns out to just not be to your liking. Please let me know within 14 days of receiving it and return it within 30 days (you will need to pay the return postage and I strongly recommend using an insured service in case it goes missing). I will refund when the item is back with me and I've checked that it is in its original condition.

Personalised orders can not be refunded unless faulty.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy
