Another innovation for Christmas 2020 this is a totally new type of jewellery to me.
Similar to Fordite, Surfite is created in a similar way, but is made from Surfboard resin.
Basically when a surfboard is created, at the end of the process it has a layer of resin poured over the board to finish it.
Some of this resin always flows off the board and onto the floor.
This resin builds up over time into a thick layer with countless different colours and textures.
Much like Fordite someone decided to use this residue layer for jewellery and it is cut and shaped
My Surfite material comes from a big surfboard factory in Cornwall.
I have created a sterling silver setting for this oval cabochon.
I also added a cutout back section so you can see the colours all the way through, and it also lets light flow through the resin.
Surfite tends to have more clear layers than Fordite and this means that on a sunny day the sun will shine through and make the colours really pop!
The pendant measures 3.5cm wide and 2.5cm top to bottom - and is strung from an 18 inch sterling snake chain
An unusual semi circle shape with a cutout back section let light show through and brighten the colours.
Nicely labelled and boxed and with a certificate of authenticity.
