International jewellery designer and rock legend’s daughter Jade Jagger visited Burnley to present a special award.

The daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick was guest of honour at Towneley Hall where she handed over a National Lottery Award to one of the artists behind a 2.5m. chandelier made of earrings.

Lauren Sagar, along with fellow artist Sharon Campbell, created the Chandelier of Lost Earrings from more than 3,000 single earrings donated by owners who had lost the other half of the pair.

The work has been voted the Best Arts project in this year’s National Lottery Awards.

The chandelier is currently on display in Towneley Hall before going on a tour around the country.

Jade said: “The Chandelier of Lost Earrings is a stunning artwork that speaks to people visually and emotionally. Thanks to National Lottery funding, Lauren and Sharon were able to create a piece of art that is incredible to look at, and reflects the rich tapestry of life through
