DIY Kintsugi Kits & all you need for a beautiful repair!
Say that you were to see something was broken, such as a bold or a glass. You love that item, and you know that it means so much to you. Without it, you will genuinely feel a sentimental hole in your life forming; it is a key item. Whether it’s a family heirloom or a memento of a time in your life that you look back on with fondness, losing that item is not an option. What, though, can you do?
You could pick up the old Japanese art of Kintsugi. Before you could do that, though, you need to understand what is Kintsugi.
What is Kintsugi?
Kintsugi is a Japanese art form in which breaks and repairs are treated as part of the object's history. Broken ceramics are carefully mended by artisans with a lacquer resin mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum. The repairs are visible — yet somehow beautiful. Kintsugi means "golden joinery" in Japanese.

Nothing is permanently broken
The first benefit of Kintsugi is a life lesson: that in life, we never lose the items that have been broken by us. If you are someone who has a passion for keeping things fracture-free in life, you might find life quite a stressful experience!
Things break, whether that’s a relationship, a friendship, or even just a ceramic object. However, the power of Kintsugi is that it quickly teaches us that, in life, nothing is broken. There is no reason for you to see something being broken as being permanent: if you break something, it can be fixed, it can be repaired.
Another useful benefit of learning about Kintsugi is that it soon teaches us about the changing of the way that we think. For example, right now you probably view that broken object as gone, as something that should have been stronger. Well, Kintsugi teaches us to stop looking at it that way; instead of seeing something as broken and thus fretting over it, take action – fix it!
Kintsugi leaves us with a valuable life lesson. You can fix what is broken, if only you act.
