Beautiful visible repairs

Fixes and repairs can add useful life to things we love and appreciate. When highlighted, instead of hidden, they can also add character and beautiful flair. Visible repairs also make these objects uniquely ours and allow us to appreciate all the times they've served us.

^ Butterlfy joints hold splitting pieces together and look great.

^ Crushed turquoise or other colorful resins can fix knot holes and deep cracks in wood while adding character and style.

^ Fixing damaged and worn clothing can be an opportunity to add style to an obviously much loved item we want to keep. Elbow patches, which add casual and cozy style, are great examples of good-looking visible mending.

^ Custom cover-ups are also a practical way to add personalization and color to otherwise in-good-shape pieces that just have certain spots that tend to get destroyed. If you are not a fan of this look and style, the same can be done with other fabrics/colors, etc, of course.

^ Kintsugi is the art of fixing broken ceramics with gold. Japanese consider these pieces more beautiful for having been broken. I agree.  A similar method can be used to fix cracks in other surfaces, like concrete floors, as they have done in the image below.
