Piece of the Week: Stephen Dweck’s Fordite Pendant
The one-of-a-kind piece is a perfect conversation starter.
It features the material known as fordite, a human byproduct of Ford’s Detroit factories. Once upon a time, workers painted cars by hand-spraying them with layers of paint.
Over time, layers of paint would accumulate in the paint facilities, showcasing a variety of hardened colors.
Sometimes referred to as “Motor Agate,” the specimens reveal interesting patterns.
In this necklace, Dweck complimented the fordite’s summer-y light blue and white shades with a blue topaz.
Set in the designer’s signature sterling silver, there is also a mischievous 18-karat yellow gold beetle accent for added interest.
A little goth and a little playful, this is the summertime version of Dweck’s typical look.
Retailing for $3,965, the pendant is available on the designer’s website.
