Fordite: What a Great way to recycle and Wear a piece of American Automotive History!

I love Recycling & Upcycling and this Brooch is a perfect example of both...

- I have replaced the dangling Pear Shape broken Stone with my Hand Cut Corvette Paint.
- The Brooch is an Older 60s Mexican Heart in a large size at almost 2 inches square.
- The Corvette Paint is from the 1990s Bowling Green Planet and has Great colors in Metallic Yellow, Burgundy, Copper, Cream & Black.
- The Stone is at a large size also - 1 1/2 x 3/4 inches
- Such Fun Movement to this Large Mid-Century Modern Brooch

I have personally hand cut this wonderful, Industrial Byproduct. And with my site you get the piece that is in the waiting for another to be made. These stones are One of a Kind and I can't make the same one twice. :)

Great Holiday present for the Car Enthusiast in your family!!!

GIFT BOXED With CARD: Your jewelry will arrive gift boxed ready to present to your loved one and includes a Card with more information about our Vintage Car Paint Over Spray or Fordite

One of a Kind Jewelry made from Vintage Car Paint
Called by many names…
Detroit Agate, Fordite, Motor Agate, GM Agate and so on…
Not really stone at all, but layer after layer of over-sprayed paint,
from the late 1970s and before, automotive production lines.

I know that this is Corvette rough...because I purchased the paint from a Gentleman that I met at the Carlisle Corvette show last year....he actually worked in the paint department in the Bowling Green Plant and took home some of this "industrial waste" and made knife handles & letter openers out of it...we got together and I have purchased several box lots of rough over the years.

What a Great Find!!!!!!!!

My Fordite Corvette bracelet arrived today and I love it! I am so glad that you mentioned in the description that this bracelet would fit small wrists. It's so beautiful and is just what I wanted. It was packaged extremely well, and arrived in 3 days! I will definitely be ordering more jewelry from this store.

These cufflinks are amazing, really beautiful the way they are cut, polished and mounted. They look 100 times better in real life than they do in the picture (and they look pretty good in the picture) - they have a lot of depth and character, and some of the layers were metallic paint so they sparkle when the light hits them. Really beautiful creation. Pamela was very helpful with the purchase as well. Great experience.
