MR T - TEACUP BROOCH
Andrew Logan jewellery includes brooch pins for ladies and some examples of a rising trend for men’s brooches. Andrew Logan brooches are handcrafted and unique, as this visionary artist never makes more than one brooch of the same design. Often the brooch pin is a statement piece to compliment many outfits and each brooch bears Andrew Logan’s signature and the date it was created, for this brooch it was 2015. Andrew Logan hopes this one-off, designer piece of wearable sculpture brings you joy.
‘Mr T’ is an unusual brooch designed around an ornate fragment of a blue and gold teacup. A pair of Indian eyes turns the work of art into a face and the brooch has a metal square with a pale blue gem encased within to form a crown. The teacup is set over black resin and has five blue beads running down each side. A vibrant turquoise, polished stone is set at the base of this brooch and the sides have been embellished with bright blue glitter.
A gold coloured safety pin is embedded in the rear of the brooch and it weighs 91g, so it a little too heavy for delicate fabrics. The brooch measures approximately 7.5 cm wide at the base and has a length of 10.5 cm, in addition the teacup handle protrudes by approximately 3 cm.
