love me...

live with me!...
Medals are made, ready to be shipped to Designed and Made's WONDERCART. I am getting my own special drawer made on the antique market barrow which will take up residence at London Design Festival (for starters) 18-26th September, it should be a really interesting exhibition and we will all be able to track the medals' progress through numerous people's hands (hopefully) through the medium of blogging. There will be some fabulous things by some fabulous makers on loan to some fabulous people!
Future venues include Design Event North East 2010. Watch this space!

Medal No. 13:

-is from a limited edition of 13; ' the Bakers Dozen'
-the pack includes: your medal, a velvet presentation cushion, a cushion slip to embroider, needles & threads, a handmade book about the object.
- the embroidery is an opportunity to 'make your mark', collaborate with the maker, help make it more beautiful before you pass it on to a most worthy do the same.

-as the medal moves through hands it will become more embellished and return a new and improved version of itself.
-think carefully, who is worthy of your medal? who will be the next ephemeral owner? and why?
-the stories that will be revealed along the journey will form a major part of the medals' new history.
-love me, stitch me, wear me, live with me.

If you are not lucky enough to get one for yourself or maybe you are but then (reluctantly obviously!) pass it on, you can purchase your own permanent object of beauty here (medal only).
