Sorry about the glare from the camera flash!!!
Note: Shopping within this website can be tricky. We try to keep 10 pendants in stock in EACH edition at all times. The best way to order the pendant that you want, is:
1. LOOK at each pendant image/photo by scrolling through the images, left to right.
2. THEN, check the availability of the pendant that you choose by looking to the RIGHT for the 'Pendant Number *' dropdown menu.
3. 'CLICK' on the 'Pendant Number *' dropdown menu and select the pendant that you'd like.
4. If that pendant is available you will see a notation that states this.
Attempting to buy from the images/photos will cause frustration.
You must select your pendant from the 'Pendant Number *' dropdown menu, not from the images/photos.
If you have questions please contact us by email.
EVERY PIECE CAN BE USED AS EITHER A NECKLACE OR KEY CHAIN PENDANT.
Each piece of the Colors Of Idora Park Jewelry Collection is uniquely handcrafted personally by Jim Amey, founder of the Idora Park Experience and is made with authentic materials from our beloved Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio.
In this "Rapids/Lost River Boat" edition each piece has been handcrafted using paint and wood chips from the Rapids/Lost River Ride (1930/1968). The Lost River ride was where the April 26, 1984 fire started that began the end for Idora Park.
The paint and wood used for these pieces is from the only known Rapids/Lost River boat still in existence. The boat had been resting in a back yard under a tree for 30 years when Jim found it. The people who owned it donated it to The Idora Park Experience and Jim set about restoring it. The pieces he salvaged in the restoration process were used to create these beautiful pieces.
Once the Idora Park materials are 'harvested' from the ride source it takes another four days to create the final pendant.
Each piece comes with a signed authentication statement that it was handcrafted by Jim Amey and is made with materials from the original Idora Park Rapids/Lost River.
