This is a beautiful tie pin that is loved by the young professional; his dad wants one as well, so unique. Glad I found artist.

I will only have these Wonderful Fordite Beads for a limited time, there are only 17 more and then they are gone.
I was blessed to find the auction of a Gemstone dealer's estate and these great Beads where in a box marked Fordite. This is great old paint!
Looking forward to a better 2017...Moving in 2016 took an amazing amount of time.
Happy to be working on my jewelry more :)
We are all set-up at the Fall Carlisle Car show with all new designs. We will be here through Saturday and would love to see you. Mention our Etsy site for a 10% discount at the show.

About

With the Heart of an Artist and Jewelry Designer my story continues...

"Without Continual Growth and Progress, such words as ,
Improvement, Achievement and Success
Have no Meaning. " -Benjamin Franklin

I was Blessed to be born into a very Artistic family and I am so happy be able to continue in that heritage.

In College in the 1970's I was first introduced to Metal working, Stone cutting and Jewelry Design. Out of these studies grew my love for Antique Jewelry and the amazing attention to detail and design of the Older pieces. And that love lead to my collection of period pieces.

Pamela's Pearls and Estate Jewelry was started in the 1980's. Partisipating in Antiques Shows up and down the East Coast with my growing collection of Antique and Estate Jewelry. Pamela's Pearls is still on going with an editing of my shows to a select few.

2010 Thunder Road Creations is created:
My love for jewelry design emerged again with an article about Recyclable Products for Jewelers...where they mentioned the Industrial Byproduct - Fordite. My Husband is into Classic Cars and was doing a lot of Car shows...What a perfect find for me, to blend my love for jewelry with his Classic Cars.

Pamela's Pearls includes:
Sale of Antique & Estate Jewelry
Repair of Antique & Estate Jewelry
Pearl & Bead Stringing
Pearl Jewelry Designs

Thunder Road Creations includes:
One of a Kind Jewelry made from this wonderful Vintage Car Paint.
I personally hand-cut all of my stones in my Designs and also incorporate Vintage Sterling Silver into many of my designs, giving new life to cast away pieces...I just love to Upcycle.

Called by many names…
Fordite, Detroit Agate, Motor Agate, GM Agate and so on…
Not really stone at all, but layer after layer of over-sprayed paint,
from the automotive production lines. The paint builds up on the racks that hold the Car bodies and parts...this build up was broken away at the end of the week or when there was just too much build up. With the clean up of the land around the Old Car plants, this industrial byproduct is reclaimed...Man made fossils.
What a Great way to Recycle and Wear a piece of American Automotive History!

I partisipate in over 20 Antiques & Car shows a year . And because of time restraints. many of One of a Kind Car Paint & Pearl Designs and even My Estate Jewelry never make it to my Etsy site... Please check out my Website for my Calender of shows. http://thunderroadcreations.com/newsandeventcalendar.html

All in all my life as an Artist & Antiques lover is a bit chaotic...But I would not give it up for the world.

WELCOME and Thank You, so much for visiting my Etsy Shop.

All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. Custom orders are more than welcome and many of the styles can be recreated in different color ways, where possible. Due to the limited supply and nature of the Vintage Car Paint not all colors are available at all times.

All my jewelry is One of a Kind and What you see is what you receive. A note on colors, many computer monitors show colors differently, so Please allow for slight variances of color from what is shown in the photos.
