Andrew Logan brooches are handcrafted and unique. His unisex brooch pins can be a statement piece and each brooch bears Andrew Logan’s signature for authenticity. Andrew Logan created this heart shaped brooch pin in 2021, named 'Africa Money' and he hopes his wearable sculpture brings you joy.

The lapel brooch is created with fragments of gold mirror, a red metal cutout in the shape of the African continent and a similar shaped bronze disc laid over black resin drawn into a heart shape.  The central feature of the brooch is a roughly cube shaped brass weight, with a geometric pattern which is thought to be of West African origin and used for weighing gold dust in the late 19th Century.  The 'Africa Money' is set into black resin on top of the red disc and the edges of the resin are finished with gold glitter. 

The brooch has an approximate dimensions of 7.5 by 8.5 cm and weighs 45 g. There is a safety pin on the reverse to attach to your clothing and it is hoped this unusual design will be treasured by the wearer.
