Kintsugi ring

In the creation of this rings I was inspired by Kintsugi, a very old japanise method to repaired ceramic objects with gold seams.

At the symbolic level I feel that Kintsugi may be associated with the human capacity to amend one’s ‘faults’, even in a creative and artistic way.

Every jewel is unique and unrepeatable.

 “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”

L.Cohen

The Japanese teach us that when an object breaks we need not throw it away. On the contrary, it should be repaired and valued because it has a story to tell, and has become unique.
