The old crystal pitcher has been in the family for many years. It has served many cold drinks at grandmas house. The sentimental value is the motivation for the repair. A crack has run from the top down the left side of the handle almost to the bottom. The plan is to run the crack around the bottom of the handle and up the right side of the handle to the top. Controlling the path the crack takes is critical. I have spend years refining this skill.
