The Pansy Project Brick Lane launch
Last night we finally saw the unveiling of the beautiful pansy brooches, made in collaboration with artist Paul Harfleet for his anti-homophobic campaign The Pansy Project. The brooches were crafted in our Brick Lane studio and handpainted by Paul himself and here he is modelling one for the opening night... The Pansy Project sees photographs from all over the world where Paul has planted the flower in a location where homophobic abuse has occurred. "Queer Boy!" is one of three slogans used on the brooches, taken from titles of his photographs. Here's our lovely Brick Lane gal Kirsty posing with the pics and our Forest Cluster Necklace... ...alongside this cool customer with a cheeky grin!! Others were enjoying the warm 'summer' night outside with a glass of wine, hearing all about the project from its creator Paul. The night came to an end and it was time for Harriet to take her polka dot eskimo home for bed! You can come and check out The Pansy Project exhibition and the hand made brooches at our Brick Lane shop.
