Large carved rainbow Surfite pendant with a contemporary silver bail and long chain
If you are a fan of bright bold contemporary jewellery with a sustainable and ethical background then you are in the right place. This tactile pendant features an array of bright colours including red, green, blue, pink and orange to name but a few.
This rainbow striped pendant is hand carved from a man-made lapidary material known as Surfite. Surfite or surf resin is produced during the ‘glassing’ of surfboards. Excess resin pools off and sets in coloured layers. These layers build up into blocks over long periods of time eventually being broken up and dis-guarded. This is where I step in… I work collaboratively with Jay a board maker based in Edinburgh. I now purchase these chunks of Surfite and hand carve them into unique pieces of jewellery.
The pendant has been carved to feature soft tapered edges and a cored out centre similar to the shape of a Lifebuoy. It is finished with a simple polished silver bail. The pendant can be worn with either side showing depending on which colour way you prefer.
Dimensions: Measuring just under 3 cm across and with a total drop from the chain of 5.4 cm. The chain is 24’’ long but can I alter this if you would prefer a different length.

Care Instructions: When the pendant needs a clean use hot soapy water and a soft bristle brush (e.g. Toothbrush). A soft polishing cloth can also be used. As with all Silver jewellery keep them away from perfume, sunscreen and other solvents. Where possible keep the necklace in the box to help reduce tarnishing and scratching of the resin when not being worn.
