This colourful rhomboid (ish) pendant features a bright piece of vintage fordite from the Dodge factory. The angular shape is smoothly bezel set in sterling silver. The pendant is fully reversible with different patterns on the front and back, the ‘front’ has a streak of blue then stripes of white, red, yellow and sparkly emerald on a white ground. The ‘back’ has the same white ground with bands of gold, red and blue, one corner is the outer crust of the rough and the pattern distorts. Fordite is lightweight so even though this pendant is chunky it is not heavy and could comfortably be worn all day.
So what is fordite? Read the fully description to find out more about this eco material!
Measures 36 by 34mm excluding bail and comes with a silver chain in a gift box (you could easily put it on a leather cord or torque as the bail is a generous 6mm internal diameter).

Now on sale – was £115 now £100
This freeform rhomboid ish shape pendant features a brightly coloured piece of vintage fordite bezel set in sterling silver. The pendant is reversible to show off the differing patterns, the ‘front’ has a streak of blue then stripes of white, red, yellow and sparkly emerald. The ‘back’ has the same white ground with bands of gold, red and blue, one corner is the outer crust of the rough and the pattern distorts. Fordite is lightweight so even though this pendant is chunky it is not heavy and could comfortably be worn all day.
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. Yellow and purple are unusual colours to find in fordite so I have compared this material with old colour charts and I’m fairly certain that it came from a Chrysler (Dodge) production line in 1970/71 (they are in no way associated with it though). I cut this material myself so if you love old muscle cars but want something different then drop me a message.

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

So long as I've not shipped an item I'm happy to cancel an order.
