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 road bikers sitting on the wall in this painting are enjoying a casual rest on a warm summer afternoon at Rittenhouse Square Park in Philadelphia. I always look for a story to paint and this day the road bikers caught my attention as they chatted away while hanging out on the wall. The bikers appear to be the main subject, but I really painted this composition with the balustrade wall as my inspiration. 

Wall sitting in Rittenhouse Square Park is a time-honored tradition for generations of visitors to the park. For a short time in January 2017, a rule was passed that prohibited wall sitting in the park. No Sitting signs were posted and the Philly police kindly reminded folks not to sit on the wall. The public response to the wall sitting ban was outrage! Sit-ins were organized, dozens of parkgoers protested and within a few days the ban was lifted! Yay!

Public parks are meeting places for folks from all different ages and backgrounds to hang out and relax. The road bikers seen in this painting embody the purpose and mission of public parks. My two road bikers render an easy-going, time-out from the hustle-bustle chaos of city streets. 

I hope you vicariously experience a few moments of “chill” while viewing this painting. While making this painting, the at-rest road bikes and bikers reminded me of how nice it is to just sometimes do nothing but sit on a wall!

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.
