There is a very, very old process of repairing broken ceramics developed in Japan called Kintsugi, or Kintsukuroi. In this process, precious metal dust is mixed with resin and the mix is used to repair the break. The result is that the scars of the break are made beautiful and add to the story of a treasured piece of pottery.

The Mended Necklace started out conceptually as a cage of pristine bars of sterling silver ~ the perfect silver wire succumbing to its natural state at either end as flame is used to encourage the ends to fuse together without solder. The nature of fusing silver is necessarily unpredictable and a second of distraction caused the beautiful warp in one wire as the flame was left a fraction too long in one place. I briefly considered starting again. And then the concept of Kintsugi came to mind and this is the result. All apparent mistakes are made beautiful with 18k gold.
