The Hex Best Thing

Handmade from the remnants of broken glass that artist Kathleen Plate has leftover from her other creations, these beautiful, hexagonal cuts of sparkling glass add subtle color and understated elegance to any outfit.

"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 the English Ph.D.-turned-jeweler.

Recycled shards are expertly smoothed and polished giving them a gem-like quality. Pieces are connected and suspended on a contemporary sterling silver chain. Handmade in Georgia.

Due to the recycled nature, each piece of glass will vary.

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.
