The Chandelier of Lost Earrings




Architectural glass artists Lauren Sagar and Sharon Campbell have created an elegant new home for wayward earrings with The Chandelier of Lost Earrings, which they produced on the grounds of St. Mary’s Maternity Hospital in Manchester with support from Arts Council England.

As part of our innovative and exciting work at St Mary’s Hospital and the Nuclear Medicine Department, Manchester, we produced a big, beautiful and uplifting chandelier. Made from all those single earrings that linger lonely in drawers after their other half is lost, this is the story of the Chandelier of Lost Earrings.

The duo are now planning to make The American Chandelier of Lost Earrings, so there may be hope for your lost earrings yet.
