'Fascia Fun' Blue Heart , 2015
This splendid brooch is part of a series which Andrew created in India in the year 2015. The opulence and vivacity of that country comes through strongly in this piece. At its centre is a triangular piece of cut glass with a patterned metallic gold backing. This piece of glass is flanked on its two downward facing sides by five strips of cut mirror whilst on the side facing upward there sit two sky-blue cut gemstones around which are arranged ten repurposed golden beads. All of these materials are are set in resin which is caked in a vivid iridescent blue glitter.
The rich blue hues and the vigorous golden colour of the patterned glass combine to create a dazzling piece of wearable artwork which will not be replicated.
