Inspired by the short story Plan B 'The Accursed Items' by American author J. Robert Lennon, jewellers Chloe Rose Taylor and Caroline Thomas have been inspired to look at the journey of inanimate objects. Sonia Sly met up with the pair at Chloe's Wellington workshop to discuss trends, drag queens, glitter, coke cans and other seemingly precious items that have been lost and sometimes found.

Their accursed creations are on display at Toi Poneke Arts Centre in Wellington.
