A .925 sterling silver and Fordite necklace, fabricated by me in my northern California studio. This one has a lot of shimmer! It comes on an oxidized sterling silver chain, available in 16", 18", 20", 22", 24", 26", 28" or 30". It's shown on a 24" chain.

Pendant dimensions: a touch over 1 3/4" tall including the bail, or 46mm. Please see all photos for different views as the Fordite looks different in different lighting, and note that colors may appear differently on your monitor. It comes in a gift box made of recycled materials, tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for giving. This is ready to ship!

I have quite a bit of unset Fordite on hand and can make something for you! Send me a message and I can show you what I have available.

Fordite, also called Detroit Agate, is a modern recycled fossil. It's layers and layers of automotive paint overspray from US auto factories that has been cut an polished the same way gemstones are. Cars used to be spray painted by hand and the overspray and drips collected on the racks that held the cars. As it built up it would periodically get chipped off in big chunks, and someone figured out that it looked really cool when cut and polished! Modern day auto painting is a different process with little overspray, so the rough material is no longer created.

USA orders are shipped priority mail flat rate, so the cost is the same for 1 item or 5. You'll receive an email with the tracking number when I print your shipping label. Delivery time is NOT guaranteed with priority mail, so I'm unable to guarantee a delivery date. Please note that the delivery date given by the USPS is an estimate only. Current turnaround time is in each listing under the shipping tab.
- VAT, GST and other local fees are NOT included in the listing price and must be paid upon delivery by the buyer, and are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Etsy has put this misleading language in my listings and I'm unable to remove it. I apologize for any confusion this may cause.

- Orders shipped outside the USA are sent first class mail. Typical delivery time is 2-3 weeks, but it can take longer.

- Your government may impose import fees, taxes, or duties at the time of delivery. These are the sole responsibility of the buyer. For more information you should contact your postal service. I put the price paid on the customs form and include an invoice in the package as is required by law.
- VAT is NOT included in the listing price. Etsy has put this misleading language in my listings and I'm unable to remove it. I apologize for any confusion this may cause.

- Orders shipping to the UK will likely be charged 20% VAT and £8 handling by Royal Mail upon delivery. These costs are the buyers responsibility and are out of my control. They are not included in the listing or shipping cost. This link will explain the delivery procedure: http://www.royalmail.com/personal/help-and-support/Ive-received-a-card-asking-for-a-payment
I am in the US so VAT, GST and other local fees, taxes and duties are not in the listing price and must be paid by the buyer upon delivery. Etsy has introduced language into my listings that is misleading and implies that VAT, GST or other taxes are included in the price, but it they are not. My apologies for the confusion this may have caused. I am unable to remove it. California residents will have sales tax added at checkout.
HOLIDAY ORDERS: I ship Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays in December. Current turnaround time is 1-2 days after ordering, except for customized pieces which may take a bit longer. US orders are shipped priority mail, but USPS does NOT guarantee a delivery date with priority mail so I am unable to do so too. Orders shipping outside the US will not arrive in time for Christmas at this point.
