The Crane Chandelier

categories Bits + Pieces

We thought we’d start the week with a nice feel-good project from The Wedding Co. They’re creating a huge chandelier of paper cranes collected from engaged couples everywhere and donating 50 cents per crane to cancer research. Plus the end result is going to be a huge community art installation piece, and those are always great.


Their goal is to collect 10,000 cranes by January 2011, but if we spread the word, it seems like it could be more than that, right? Pass on the info and/or send your crane their way! All cranes from enagaged couples should include your names, a general location and your wedding date. For more info and to see where to send your crane, (or to request a premade crane from The Wedding Co.), go to their website:

  4. Hi there! Thanks so much for the coverage – we’re very excited about the project, every crane we receive is slightly different which is fantastic, the final project will be completely original.
