Why restrict art to walls, when you can wear it. Add a splash of creativity to your unique spirit with an art earring handmade just for you. Each art choker necklace is meticulously designed & crafted with select images from my original oil paintings.

The Story

Readiing Terminal Market in Center City Philadelphia, is one of the oldest and largest indoor farmer's food markets in the nation. A nationally know foodie paradise, it is home to a wide variety of fresh produce, seafood, poultry, fresh meats, home-baked pastries, Amish specialities, local Pennsylvania Dutch delicacies, and uniquely Philly hoagie and cheesesteak vendors. The blue-eyed boy in this painting is a young and knowledgable member of his family's Pennsylvania Dutch food stand's team. I loved the way he is engulfed by the colorful rainbow of glass jars, packages of popping corn, soup mixes, and all kinds of dried delicacies. The impactful blue of his shirt is matched only by the intensity of his blue eyes. I was taken not only by the cornucopia of colors represented in the painting, but how the boy and his family's food stand exemplifies the down-to-earth atmosphere of the entire market.

Quality food markets are rare these days. Located, not in the suburbs, but in the middle of our great city of Philadelphia, the Terminal Market provides a variety of fresh food and vegetables that are easily accessible to neighborhoods located throughout the city. From artisanal cheeses, to classic scrapple and pork chops, the Reading Terminal Market has food and products to meet a wide variety of tastes and budgets.

How I Make the Choker Pendant Necklace

The wearable art choker pendant measures 1 inch in diameter. The pendant is created from paper images of my original oil paintings and decoupaged onto extremely lightweight laser-cut birch wood. 

Triple coated with matte sealer,  the choker pendants are extremely durable and will look lovely for many years to come. They are water & sweat resistant, but please do not shower or swim with them.  

The pendant hangs on a 17-18 inch long leather cord necklace. The cord is 2mm diameter black leather with a silver tone clasp and 2 inch extender.

All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from item to item.

I take every step to ensure the image is as accurate as possible to the original painting. However variations in color may occur due to monitor differences.

I hope you enjoy my wearable art as much as I enjoy creating it!

You can special order, if out of stock, at no extra fee. Please allow 4 business days to ship.
