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 earring 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 Earrings

These wearable art earrings are created from paper images of my original oil paintings and decoupaged onto extremely lightweight laser-cut birch wood. The image appears on both sides of the earring, so, the earrings can dangle freely, and the image will always be visible.

Triple coated with matte sealer, the earrings 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. 

Allergy-free surgical steel earring hooks make these earrings safe for your ears. Additionally, you will never lose one of these earrings, clear plastic backs are included for your convenience.

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 earrings as much as I enjoy creating them!

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