Dear Fleisher, 4×6 Inches of Art is a biennial fundraising exhibition showcasing the work of hundreds of artists from Philadelphia and beyond. Artists submit original postcard size works in a wide range of media and styles, each of which is exhibited anonymously and sold on a first-come, first-served basis for $50.
Some well-known artists have contributed work So have some not so well-known artists like me. Since polymer clay is not well represented in the exhibition, I try to use polymer in my contribution. This year I made an earring holder you can hang on the wall using screen printing over a stripe pattern. I included a pair of matching earrings made from the same screen printed polymer clay, mixed metals and seed beads.
I like this style earring because it spins around when it’s worn.
When I cut out the earrings, the scraps looked just as interesting so I used them too along with gold-toned screw eyes to suspend the earrings.
