Orange Stone and Bead Heart, 2009
Centered on a piece of repurposed brick, this peculiar heart shaped brooch is made up of eleven small repurposed jewels arranged around the base of the brooch as well as a band of cylindrical opaque orange coloured glass beads arranged around the perimeter of the upper two lobes. Within these two lobes are two pieces of orange tinted broken glass mirror. These materials are set in resin which is covered in iridescent and translucent orange glitter.
The unusual inclusion of certain materials in this piece adds to its uniqueness and the wearer will feel assured that there can be no replication of this wearable artwork.
