Kathleen Plate

Kathleen Plate's elegant and contemporary recycled glass jewelry has a bit of family history. Plate grew up in Washington and observed the art of cutting and soldering glass by her crafty mother. She still brings those skills to her pieces today.

During the mid 1990s she began making and selling jewelry in her spare time. She did so well that she decided to take her Smart Glass work national, even though it meant putting off her graduate work in American Literature.

Smart Glass pieces are all handmade from bright and bold stained glass, silver solder and sterling silver. Plate believes in simplicity and respect for the earth and the human spirit. All her designs use recycled material, while portions of the proceeds from others will go to support many of Kathleen's favorite non-profit organizations. collection

    This was a gift to a friend who loves jewelry that makes a statement but is still elegantly simple. This necklace fits this description perfectly with its lovely soft aquas and simple design.

    I was a little dissapponted with it. the necklace seemed larger, less elegant and original in peron. Also, I could not find a dterling silver stamp on it, even though in the catalog it was described as such.

    Comments about DOUBLE GLASS NECKLACE:

    I am a bit disappointed in this necklace. Online, the glass appears to be smaller and a bit more delicate. When I got it, I was surprised with how big and heavy it is. The piece itself is pretty, but I don't think it's for me. I am considering returning this item.

            This necklace looks unique and pretty on the website. Unfortunately, the chain didn't look sterling - it was very shiny and cheap looking, and the glass appeared plastic. I was really disappointed; it looked very 5 & 10.

              The first disappointment with this is that it came with a different chain than is pictured. The chain in the picture has oblong links and looks cool, the chain that was sent was a serpantine - style chain. The chain does not appear to be good quality and feels flimsy in your hand. Also, the glass pieces where very rough around the edges, literally, they needed to be smoother. I am sending this back right away. I know you get what you pay for, but this is not worth even the [$] price.

                The glass in the necklace is quite a bit larger than I expected it to be, which means it also hangs lower. It's a lot more substantial than expected and the color is beautiful.

                  This is a very nice piece. I bought it as a gift. The colors are very nice and I love the fact that it is made of recycled (reused) glass.
