This listing is for a pair of colorful fordite earrings handmade by us in our home in Wisconsin. The ear wires and jump rings for this set are surgical steel so they will not turn or tarnish. My wife is sensitive to certain metals and she can wear these ear wires. The stones measure about 19 x 10 mm. This fordite occurred as a result of painting vehicles at the plant at Parkway in Toledo Ohio. 

Picture props not included.

Fordite is recycled automotive paint sourced primarily from automotive factories. It forms in thin layers as car parts are painted on the racks that hold them in place. After hundreds of trips through the booth where the paint is sprayed then baked the excess buildup is scraped off the racks. We buy this waste paint in rough chunks and recycle it into beautiful jewelry. It?s said it takes almost a thousand layers of paint to make a one inch thick piece of fordite. The original fordite came from Ford Motors in Detroit hence the name Ford-ite. Fordite from prior to 1978 can contain lead. All of our fordite is either current or from the early 2000?s so it?s not lead based.
