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 BOOMERANG EARRINGS:

        As previously mentioned the wire is a bit thick on this making it uncomfortable to wear. Also the craftsmanship is a little sloppy. Front looks great, but the back soldering is noticeably messy.
        The color of the stone is beautiful against the silver metal, and the length is nice, so I will try to get use to the wire.

          Look beautiful but too large, uncomfortable to wear. A smaller version would be nice.

          The posts were a larger guage than I'm used to, so a bit uncomfortable at first. They look beautiful, though.

              The pictures doesn't do the earrings justice! I am so very pleased and can't wait for my daughter's reaction. The color is beautiful and the shape is lovely. I want a pair for myself!
