Sterling Silver and Fordite Cat Necklace
This hand fabricated necklace features a Fordite cabochon bezel set in a hand cut sterling silver cat silhouette. From the moment I first saw this Fordite cabochon I knew it had to become a cat pendant. The backside has been etched with my Moroccan tile pattern, just for fun. The pendant measures 2-3/8” x 1-1/8”. The Fordite cabochon has a few minor nicks at the edges, the most significant being at the top right. You have to look very closely to see them. Fordite is old automotive paint formed from the buildup of layers of enamel paint slag from a time when cars were hand spray-painted. It can be cut and polished.
