Announcement   Welcome to A Kintsugi Life, with handcrafted kintsugi inspired jewelry and gifts. My kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) inspired work is developed from the Japanese art form that repairs broken pottery with gold-infused lacquer to create golden seams in the repaired form that make it more beautiful and valuable than the original.

I have adapted this process to make jewelry and accessories in polymer clay or stone using modern, less expensive repair materials. Because of the uniqueness of each batch of mixed clay or stone and the unpredictable nature of the breaking process, every piece is a one of a kind made just for you!

I also make a few faux kintsugi items to offer lower cost alternatives. These items have the look of kintsugi without actually being broken.

Learn more about kintsugi and the process I use for creating these kintsugi inspired treasures on my website at AKintsugiLife.com.

About

Unique kintsugi-inspired jewelry and accessories

My art, writing, and coaching are all inspired by the image of kintsugi.

Kintsugi is a Japanese art form that uses gold-infused lacquer to repair broken pottery pieces in a way that leaves the repaired object more beautiful and valuable than it was originally. All of us get broken in various ways by life, and I believe that this art form can remind us to find the beauty and value in the healed scars. The healing that has happened becomes our gold when we allow that healing to spill forth in the healing of the world around us.

As I've worked with this metaphor in my writing and coaching practice, I wanted to create tangible gifts that people could use as reminders to see the gold in their healing. I developed my own modern methods to apply this art form to stone and polymer clay to make inexpensive items for use in jewelry and accessories. Because of the uniqueness of each batch of mixed clay or stone and the unpredictable nature of the breaking process, every piece is a one of a kind made just for you!

In addition to these modern versions of kintsugi in polymer clay and stone, I have a cheaper line of faux kintsugi heart pendants that have the look of kintsugi without the more expensive breaking and repair processes.

My artwork, along with my writing, is my creative outlet for my own healing, and my shop is a way to share my kintsugi-inspired creations with others who are also seeking to find the treasure in the scars of their own lives. My greatest reward is in hearing stories from my customers of the ways these images of kintsugi have been a source of healing and comfort in the painful times of their lives.
