In the automotive factories, on the floors where they paint the cars, the paint layers and forms a hard surface—like a stone. Some enterprising person realized that chiseling it off allowed for it to be formed into jewelry, pens, the occasional handle to a knife and many things actually. The Fordite we use is from the Ford Motor Company between the years of 1960 and 1990. We also have some Corvette paint as those cars were painted in a different room and have different colors. I think our customers’ response to our Fordite pieces is easily explained by the somewhat mythical quality of Detroit itself—the boom and the bust of it and now its resurrection…a very American story. 
All Fordite pieces are sold in limited quantities as the material of this quality and age is extremely limited. 

These mini versions of our Fordite Discs measure 2cm x 2cm.

They can be added to Lozenges or worn on their own with the Earring Base.

18k Gold

With reference to our  convertible earrings:
Please note that the discs separate from the base--that is part of their design. When the earring is closed the disk is "locked" in place. When the earring is opened, please make sure that the disk is at it's lowest point on the earring so that it can be put on securely

All of the stones, all of the sizes. Add a Disc directly to your Earring Bases or at the bottom of a string of Lozenges. Yes, they're light as a feather and will not weigh your ears down. You could also add them to a Working Dot, slip the Working Dot around one of your favorite chains, and have a necklace. Welcome to the world of infinite possibilities.

Burning Questions

What’s the size difference between babylocks, medium locks and regular locks?

A babylock measures a 1/2 inch, a medium an inch, and a regular lock an inch and a quarter.

How can I style my lock?

You can use it as an extra link to a chain, as a charm holder, or use it to simply complete a chain.

What are the most popular chain lengths?

  • 15” is popular for a choker-style look.
  • 19” is universally flattering as a necklace and most customers can wrap it around their wrists as a bracelet.
  • 32” gives maximum play with various styling possibilities.
