SILVER, BLACK & CRYSTAL DISC BROOCH - VENUS DROP
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 brooch is a statement piece and, as with all Andrew Logan jewellery, it bears his signature and the date, being created in 2016. Andrew Logan hopes this one-off piece of wearable sculpture brings you joy.
This unconventional brooch features a convex disc of silver mirror which has black markings showing through from the reverse side of the glass. The disc is laid over black resin and around 2/3 of the bottom part of the circumference is surrounded with eleven grey, teardrop-shaped crystals fixed into metal casements and with two extra crystals dangling. From the two sides of the brooch there are two small, black, oval beads suspended on silver coloured chain, interspersed with small, smokey grey crystals. Where the edges of the resin can be seen, they are encrusted with pewter/grey glitter.
The distinguished 'Venus Drop' is designed as a brooch but could also be threaded onto a chain, or cord, to make a statement necklace. The brooch has a diameter of approximately 9 cm and it weighs around 75 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 in green.
