Hoop Dreams

Dreamy blue and green orbs bring recycled glass full circle in Kathleen Plate's fluid earrings, handmade from remnants of sake and Coca-Cola® bottles. Like small and delicate sculptures, Plate works with the subtle tint from bottles' previous forms to create each modern set. A weightless and elegant pair made for everyday wear. Handmade of recycled glass and sterling silver in Georgia. Smart Glass Inc. is an official licensee of The Coca-Cola® Company.

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

      The earrings are beautiful, they make a soft tinkle sound every once in a while.My wife loves them, I love them on her. Awesome gift that you know can't be found in just any store. Unique story of being recycled sake bottles adds to the rarity of this find. Great delivery, arrived within the 3 to 9 business days before Christmas. The special packaging was great. I would buy from this retailer again and I would highly recommend the earrings.

        This is a unique pair of earrings and the back story adds to the mystique. My daughter seemed to be very happy to receive them as a Christmas gift -- she's a middle school teacher and her female students enjoy critiquing her outfits and accessories.

                I love these fun, dangly hoops! I wear them to the office during the week, and on Friday with more stylish, casual wear. They are absolute perfection paired with fun, girly styles for Girl's Night Out. These earrings are extremely unique and sexy. They most definitely are a great little conversational piece of art! Buy them, wear them, LOVE them!

                    I bought a pair for myself and a pair for my sister in law. We both love them and wear them all the time -- great with jeans or dressed up. Size is great and love that they're not only a different look but also recycled.

                        I've been lusting after these gorgeous earrings for the longest time. I used to have a pair of the large beer bottle hoops and was hoping to buy another pair or something similar ever since I broke one. :( These are a perfect replacement. Light, fun, and so beautiful. They suit me perfectly. Happy birthday to me!
