Hot Smiley, 2013
Smiles feature heavily in Andrew's work. As a symbol of happiness and joy they are an obvious and universal expression of the message within his work.
Andrew himself wears a smiley brooch everyday.
This 'Smiley' is a vivid red, the eyes are created with two large glass beads set within red resin that is finished with red glitter.
The smile is created with 27 small stones - 25 are faceted and two are smooth also set with in bed of red glittered resin. All these elements lie on the surface of a red circular mirror set within red resin and finished with red glitter.
This is a truly joyous piece and will hopefully bring a smile to both the wearer and those who see it
