The Essentials: Smart Glass Jewelry creates runway acclaimed jewelry from recycled beer, wine, salad dressing and soda bottles. Designer Kathleen Plate combines uniquely shaped bottle cross sections with sterling silver and silver smolder using traditional stain glass methods. The line includes earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, and cufflinks that are truly one-of-a-kind. Smart Glass has walked the runway of LA Fashion week, been a centerpiece to the Sundance Film Festival, and has partnered with Coke to create a jewelry line for the soda company. Ethic Chic: Smart Glass raises the environmental standard once again to become the first jewelry company to package their jewelry in oxo-degradable zip-top bags. Kathleen Plate challenges people to look beyond the ordinary by transforming everyday beer, soda, salad dressing and wine bottles into runway acclaimed jewelry. Kathleen believes in living a simple life, while placing meaning on certain fundamentals. Among these are honoring the earth, the human spirit and its diverse nature. These beliefs are inherent in Smart Glass designs, some of which use recycled material while portions of the proceeds from others will go to support many of Kathleen's favorite non-profit organizations.
