The Missing Link

"I want my work to inspire people to see the things we take for granted differently, to be catalysts for conversations with strangers about how their jewelry is actually made from recycled bottles," says English Ph.D.-turned-jeweler Kathleen Plate, who helps recycled glass come full circle in this chic, Asymmetrical Sake Bottle Necklace. Handmade from remnants of sake and Coca-Cola® bottles, modern tints from the bottles' previous forms lend colorful charm to each ethereal piece. Handmade of recycled glass and and sterling silver in Georgia. Smart Glass Inc. is an official licensee of The Coca-Cola® Company.

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.
