I cried when I dropped my lovely orange bakelite bangle that broke in a couple places. Couldn't be reglued - put it away for awhile. Later got the pieces out and "broke" them in 1.25" segments for the fake closures on this dress. I designed a group as my final project in my fashion design college back in 1997. I won first place. Then I had professional photos taken for my portfolio. I really do NOT like that black armhole - it bugs me! Oh well my portfolio helped me get employment and some custom work too.
UPCYCLE is defined: reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original. I would say - to the unfixable original.
