So I got my wife this flower for our first anniversary years ago… she was cleaning recently and knocked it over.
It’s made of crystal/glass and some sort of metal…maybe silver coated. It was very expensive but even more sentimental to her. She’s heartbroken!
How would I put this back together? I’m thinking Epoxy…but how would I keep all of the pieces “clamped” ?
Any help is appreciated!

1 minute epoxy comes to mind with you as the clamp, and hopefully keep your fingers.

Aside from using my fingers, any other suggestions?

A few questions: how big is it? What is broken-the metal or crystal, or both? Is it made to stand alone on what looks to be a tiny foot? A jeweler may be your best bet for repair.
Other than fingers, maybe padded alligator clamps?
It’s a beautiful gift/memory. I hope you’ll share the repair, BoomWood.
