Surfite Silver Half Moon Necklace
This beautiful necklace features layers of clear and multicolored recycled Surfite sanded down to a smooth half circle shape. A silvered bar is attached and the pendant hangs from a 18 inch silver chain.
"Surfite" is a playful name for recycled surfboard resin. It's a man-made by-product of the surfboard glassing process: hand-mixed resins are poured over the boards, and the excess spills over the sides and onto the shop floor, where it builds up, layer by layer, color by color.
I'm so excited to be working with this recyclable material. This piece was cut from a slab and then shaped and polished by hand.
The piece measures 1 1/4 inches tall and approx. 1 1/2 inches wide.
Every piece is handmade. I don't use templates so each one is unique with a variety of resin and wood ratios. My process includes cutting, shaping and sanding the piece by hand one at a time. All pieces are made by me in my studio in Huntersville, NC.
