LARGE PURPLE HEART BROOCH - A PURPLE LOVE
Andrew Logan jewellery includes brooches, all of which are handcrafted and unique as this visionary British artist never makes more than one brooch of the same design. This purple brooch is definitely a statement piece and, as with all Andrew Logan jewellery, it bears his signature and the date, being created in 2019. Andrew Logan hopes this one-off piece of wearable sculpture brings you joy.
The brooch is named 'A Purple Love' and features a clear piece of glass in its centre which has been hand-painted a dark purple colour on the underside. The glass has several cracks towards the pointed end of the heart which have been intentionally included by Andrew as he believes this brings luck to the piece. He has laid this glass over a heart-shape of dark resin and added two dyed purple shells to the top section. The edges are embellished with an abundance of purple and violet glitter and numerous jewels; including a heart shaped, purple crystal in the centre, a triangular purple crystal on one side and four pink glass flower beads, a purple flower and five more pinky/purple crystals on top of the shells.
The Purple Heart is a large, flamboyant piece of costume jewellery. It is designed as a brooch but could also be threaded onto a chain, or cord, to make a statement necklace, or used as a decorative wall piece. The brooch has a width of approximately 13.5 cm at its widest point and a length of approximately 17.5 cm. It is large piece of wearable art, not for the faint-hearted and weighs 155 g. The rear of the heart is backed with black resin which has a safety pin embedded in it and bears Andrew Logan's signature.
