Through a Glass Sparkly

Designer Kathleen Plate discovers treasure in what other people simply throw away. The richly hued, circular pendants for this precious necklace were mined from discarded glass. Wine and soda bottles give the rings a cool pallet of blues and greens, and each handmade piece is a one-of-a-kind creation. The pendants cluster in a sparkling cache at the end of an antiqued brass chain. Handmade in Atlanta, GA.

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.
