This collection is inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, meaning that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. Highlighting the 'flaws' make it unique and special.
We can choose to reject our bitter experiences and flaws, to wish and will them away, to regret, to pine, and to live in the land of “If only…” We can disguise with false-self personas, cover up with defences, distract with busyness.
Or we can choose to see these experiences for what they are: our golden seams. Gilded scars.
We wanted to make these pieces to look literally like an 18ct Gold mended break as a reminder to embrace the hardships and flaws in life and turn them into something beautiful. Life is all about perspective.
A selection of different subtle engraved affirmations or encouraging words quietly scintillate along one side, or why not even change them into your own personalised message?
