Sterling Silver and Motor Agate Fordite Bead Earrings #1682
Lapidary cut, multi-layered Motor Agate (Fordite) in matched double-sided and reversible dangles - set in mini hammered sterling channel mounts and hung from decorative ball style sterling hooks. The salvaged and repurposed material set in these earrings began as a hunk of cured auto paint overspray that was harvested from a major auto plant many years ago.
These pieces are beautiful, double-sided Type 3 Motor Agate tongue shaped cabs that can be worn with either side showing by simply reversing the dangles on the hooks: Color on color layers with metallics. Very rare specimens.
Dimensions from top of hook: 48.5 x 9.5mm.
