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

The summer of 2016 was hot, hot, hot in the streets of Philadelphia. During 2016, as every other year, the kids of Philadelphia upheld the long-standing tradition of swimming in the fountains located along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. And, to top off the beauty of the Parkway, is the Philadelphia Museum of Art as the backdrop!

During my 20's I lived and worked in the Art Museum Area, and loved to see all the kids playing in the fountains. Wanting to capture the kids of Philly enjoying some summertime fun, I ventured out to photograph the fountains on the Parkway this summer. I got lots of random shots of kid having fun.

My photo references for this painting combined my original photos with a CC0 photo from Unsplash. 

I had so much fun with this painting. The spray of the fountains, the magnificent fountain sculpture, and capturing the joy found on the streets of Philadelphia was a sheer delight for me.

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.
