Beauty in a Bottle

Three pieces of recycled wine bottles, from Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and red wines, create a beautiful necklace as they hang from three layers of sterling silver chain. And you can complete your look with these elegant and contemporary earrings made of Chardonnay (amber), red wine (green) or Pinot Grigio (blue) bottles. Because each piece is handmade, expect slight variations that add to each necklace's unique character. Handmade in Georgia by Kathleen Plate. Sold separately.

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

          Comments about RECYCLED WINE BOTTLE JEWELRY:

          I really like Kathleen Plate's jewelry- I have a bunch of her stuff. 2 of the 3 glass color blocks in the necklace overlap each other rather than hanging separately at different heigh levels, which I don't like. The glass is moderately heavy, which snugs this lariat necklace up tightly on my neck, and the tiny silver links are somewhat uncomfortable so tight on my neck.

            Necklace is a little short for me, but it's very pretty. I loved wearing it for the most part and I received tons of compliments and oohs and ahhs....

              Love the design. They aren't perfect, but I think that's probably the idea. Got lots of compliments on my very first wear!

                  I bought these for my sister as a gift - and she LOVES them adn will wear them all the time. She is very "green" and loved that they were made from recycled wine bottles, yet so pretty and stylish.

                  I love all the unique products that UnCommonGoods carries, and thought the earrings were a creative gift option. Although the glass was beautiful, I didn't like the quality of the earring settings. The silver setting around the glass part was bent and scuffed in some spots. I suspect that maybe this was the intent of this style of earring seeing as they are made from recycled glass, but the description didn't state so, and I wasn't comfortable giving these as a gift.

                  This piece is a show-stopper. It's very cool and unique. I love that it can go with casual tees and also dressier outfits. It's very fun, however, the glass charms are heavy enough that they pull the lariat tight, so it feels a bit like a choker at the top, which I find uncomfortable. I'm still deciding on whether to return it or not because of this.

                    My mother loved the necklace and I thought since she lives in Georgia like the artist and she loves wine that this would be perfect. My mother loved it so much that she purchased the earings to match
