AKintsugiLife's Shop Announcement

Welcome to A Kintsugi Life, with kintsugi-inspired gifts that are all one of a kind.

My kintsugi-inspired work is developed from the Japanese artform that repairs broken pottery with a gold-infused lacquer to create golden seams in the repaired form that make it more beautiful and valuable than the original. I simulate this process using gold- or silver-colored polymer clay to repair broken polymer clay pieces to symbolize the way that the healing of the broken places in our lives and our faith leaves greater beauty in its wake.

One of my favorite kintsugi-inspired jewelry creations is a series of polymer clay hearts in various swirled color combinations that have been broken and repaired in this kintsugi-inspired way to remind us all that our broken hearts can and do mend. And in the healing, we often find great beauty and resiliency.

These kintsugi style pendants are also available in a range of circle settings. In addition, kintsugi-inspired bracelets, earrings, key chains, and pens are also available.

Finally, in my kintsugi-inspired prayer beads and rosaries, the cross is created in a kintsugi style with the colors chosen for the polymer clay cross matching the colors of the natural stones used for the beads. Through this process, I symbolize the way that our faith grows and deepens when challenged by doubts and difficult circumstances in our lives.

Because of the uniqueness of each batch of mixed clay and the unpredictable nature of the breaking process, every piece is a one of a kind made just for you!
