Andrew’s butterfly brooches are always very popular. This one is formed of two pieces of ruby red glass and a number of pink tinted smashed mirror pieces as well as a number of repurposed jewels mainly pink, iridescent and gold in colour. These jewels and glass pieces are arranged in the shape of a butterfly, with metal antennae, and set in cream coloured resin. Glitter covers the resin in the areas that the other materials do not and the two hind wings are overlaid with pink resin, which is finished with iridescent glitter.
