Fordite is automobile paint which is formed from the built up layers of enamel paint overspray on tracks and skids when cars were hand spray painted. The paint has been baked numerous times and has become so hard that it is able to be cut and polished.
These earrings are handcrafted in my studio using traditional metalsmithing techniques.
