These handmade, sterling silver, wire wrapped earrings are made with an interesting material with a cool back story. Fordite is actually hundreds of layers of dried paint which have been chiseled off spray booths in automotive factories. This kind of paint is no longer used, so it is a very finite resource rare and valuable cabochons. It makes beautiful cabochons and is very light for comfy earrings. These have a black, red and white bulls eye pattern. You may have seen this called Detroit Agate, too. Same thing.

As with all of my wire wrapped jewelry, I used heavy sterling silver - not plated, filled or coated wire to finish this wire wrapped set of earrings. I have added a beautiful faceted red bead to highlight the bulls eye. The earwires are hand forged sterling silver.

stone ---- 29x14mm
earrings ---- 2.45" / 62mm long (from the top of the earwire); .66" / 17mm wide
