Bottle Deposit

Handmade from "bottle butts," as artist Kathleen Plate calls them, these statement rings feature a quarter-sized piece of brilliant, glossy recycled glass taken from the bottom of water and beer bottles.

Not wanting to let anything go to waste, Kathleen uses the entire bottle from the top to the middle to the bottom to create her signature line of luminous glass and sterling silver jewelry. Handmade in Georgia.

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.

    Comments about Reclaimed Bottle Rings:

    I first ordered the "amber" ring and the photo above makes the color seem a bit more vibrant than it actually is. Unless there's light shining through it, which isn't very likely on your finger, the color is very, very dark. I sent the brown back for the green and am much happier with it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The exchange was simple and I received my replacement product quickly.

      Comments about Reclaimed Bottle Rings:

      This ring is great!! Really big and substanial with a big honkin' piece of glass. The silver is chunky and shiny...It makes me feel like I should have super powers...like a "Wonder Twin" ring!! I got the green one and it really is a nice clear green color.
