The Best most Fabulous News!

The Chandelier of Lost Earrings.......

To say both myself and Lauren are excited would be an understatement. This will fund its design, materials creating it and installation.

I know this isn't a Grammy award.....but....without the mass support we have received with, lost earrings sent in and financial donations, this project would not have been possible,  

OK better get busy we have a chandelier to make... back to business..

Next Collection of Lost Earrings will be at Victoria Baths Manchester Heritage open day, Sunday 9th September.

Bring your lost earrings and stories along, be part of the Chandelier!

Museum of Science and Industry - Makers Faire weekend

the famous earring that got a mention on BBC radio manchester Heather Stotts 
Both Lauren and myself had a great weekend collecting earrings and meeting the people who donated them and hearing their stories, Thank you!
 The response to the 'Chandelier of lost Earrings' project was fabulous, confirming our believe that public art at its most successful should be participative, and that people should 'get it'.

A BIG thank you to MOSI and all the people who organised the event.

Here are some of the pictures taken during the weekend, tweeted, and then appearing on our Twitter wall.
We are embracing social media, well Lauren already has and did a grand job on the twitter wall, I am relative beginner.
