Sterling Silver and Motor Agate Fordite Necklace #1763
Lapidary cut freeform, Type 3 Motor Agate (Fordite) cabochon set in heavy, hand fabricated solid sterling silver with light oxidizing, hand stamped detailing, and our signature mini-hammered finish. Full bezel back. The organic bail design features a freeform silver petal that was created by our water casting of molten sterling into a bucket of water.
The salvaged and re-purposed enamel material used in this piece began as a hunk of cured auto paint overspray that was harvested from a factory many years ago.
This piece has a beautiful and rare Type 3 Motor Agate cabochon: Color on color layers with metallics. This is a very special piece as it features a prominent band of pink; an extremely rare color to find. Maybe that was a for a special Cadillac?
Pendant dimensions from top of bail: 57.4 x 30.0mm. Hand signed.
16" black braided leather choker cord with oxidized, high quality sterling finishes and heavy lobster clasp.
