Glass craft glue: Advice please

A precious bottle has been broken. Thick blue glass given by a loved one.

I have the pieces and can piece it together (its thick old glass).

What glue do you suggest I use, please?

I'm wondering if there is, say, a special golden type glue (or similar) rather like, say, the Japanese repair china with. That way the preciousbottle could have new but treasured character.

I'd so much appreciate advice.

I really cannot help but I do know the Japanese repair craft that you referred to. I will be watching this thread with interest and hope that you find a way to get the bottle repaired.

Here's what I found. I'm no good at adding links.

Thanks for the advice. What I'm not easily finding is good glue that will dry gold where the crack is.

You mean Kintsugi
Easy enough to source on Amazon.

Now you know what you are looking for you might even find it closer to home, somewhere like Hobbycraft or even Tesco.
