I glued it before and it stayed on for a year. Now it broke off again.

    What kind of glue did you use a year ago? I have no personal experience but do hear that Loctite Glass glue is very good ir glass to glass adhesion. It is waterproof and heat resistant, make sure you clean the pieces well with alcohol and remove any old glue before attempting again.

      Ana, thanks for your response. I can't remember the glue I used.

    I highly recommend a product called Bondini. You can get it at Lowes home centers, and it permently glues almost everything, including porous items. I repaired a wooden drawer with it about 20 years ago, and it is still holding strong. This is the best stuff ever! But if you can't find Bondini, there is a Gorilla glue product that will repair glass, porcelain, pottery, etc. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

      Sandra, thanks for the help. I am going to check out the Bondini and the Gorilla glue.

    Bondini works if E6000 isn't doing the trick. If the glass arm has a screw on attachment ( mine do), you can replace the entire by purchasing a replacement online. I contacted an electrician to have mine rewired. Good luck

    E6000 is also a clear glass glue, but not sure about the suspension grade.

    Loctite glass glue is your best bet .

    Liquid super glue ( I like Locktite) for non porous surfaces. Gel for porous surfaces.

    Check around your area for a glass repair expert. My parents have a piece of expensive glass art and a piece broke during moving. The glass guy repaired it without any evidence and it's held for over 15 years.

    Sandra, thanks for responding. I will look into your suggestions.
