To mend my broken heart

About this project

Replacing the lacquer and powder dust used in the traditional method of Kintsugi with epoxy and silver or gold chain, the aim is to embrace the damaged and the imperfect by highlighting the cracks and missing pieces with the chain.

Using a selection of unwanted and damaged wedding gifts and objects collected over the years, a collection of curious, wearable pieces and decorative objects is created, whilst giving the original pieces a lease of a new life, a new identity and function.
