GREECE VI - Turquoise Heart with Swimmer & Pearls Brooch, 2022
This brooch is part of a small collection of beautiful new brooches inspired by Andrew Logan's recent travels to Greece in June 2022.
These beautiful brooches embody Andrew Logan's love of travel and adventure; shells and stones selected from his vast collection take the form of rocks, cliffs, smashing waves and glittering, subterranean seabeds, where pearls and other treasures lie ready to be discovered. Tiny figures are poised ready to jump in or are already swimming in the reflecting blue-green mirrored sea.
These brooches have been handmade with joy by Andrew Logan in his studio in mid-Wales. Each brooch is signed, titled and dated by Andrew on the reverse.
Take Andrew's joyful and infectious spirit of adventure and discovery with you wherever you go with these new wonderfully unique pieces of wearable art.
GREECE VI takes the form of Andrew Logan's classic glittering heart brooches, with a Summer twist.
At the centre of this heart are 12 pieces of mirrored, cyan blue glass, set into turquoise blue glitter covered resin. This unusual heart has a string of 38 pearls which frame the edge of the heart, making this piece even more striking. At the top centre of the heart, a tiny paddling figure can be seen, with one knee bent and one leg outstretched. The figure wears a red bathing suit. To the right of the figure is a larger, iridescent pearl stone, and beside that a metal bead. A tiny red arrow is attached to the first pearl on the top right corner of the heart. All of these elements have been set into blue resin, which has been covered on all sides by sparkling turquoise resin.
GREECE VI measures approximately 9 by 9.5cm at its widest points and weighs 38g. It can be attached to a chosen garment using a gold coloured safety pin embedded in the resin on the reverse. It would make a perfect Summer memento, or a very special and unique gift.
