Kintsugi resources | A Kintsugi Life //   Kintsugi (金継ぎ?) (Japanese: golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (金繕い?) (Japanese: golden repair) Defined as "to repair with gold",[1] is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique.[2][3][4] As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

A Kintsugi Life is devoted to exploring the ways the art of kintsugi can inform and inspire how we live and heal and offers stone kintsugi jewelry for sale.

Broken is Beautiful in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. Broken things are repaired with gold (or silver) joinery, so that the repaired object is even lovelier than the original. It leaves history in tact and brightens any mistake.
