Wholesale Spa Source partners with Smart Glass Jewelry ---Turn your empties into eco-friendly, stylish jewelry to improve your bottom line... and help the planet! Wholesale Spa Source announces its alliance with Smart Glass Jewelry, http://www.smartglassjewelry.com/, to provide eco-friendly jewelry in its offerings (in addition to great companies such as Alaska Glacial Mud, Mighty Leaf Teas, GG2G, etc.) Kathleen Plate, the owner and artisan behind Smart Glass, handcrafts jewelry from recycled glass bottles of all types, silver solder and sterling silver. Each piece is an original, one-of-a-kind, work of art. Actress Sienna Miller even donned a pair of Smart Glass' beer bottle earrings at the most recent Sundance Film Festival. Here's what (important) people are saying about Smart Glass: "The delicate lariats, edgy hoops, and bold necklaces of the "Open" line manage to be colorful and eye-catching without being overwhelming... A lariat crafted out of a recycled Aveda bottle does wonders to dress up a beater, and summer festivals dedicated to the Dionysian pleasure of drinking are the perfect time to sport hoops made from recycled beer and wine bottles." -www.SocialDiva.com "Smart Glass proves that you can be green AND gorgeous without sacrificing style." -Robanne Schulman, Celebrity Stylist- Atlanta "- it's not only eco-friendly, but incredibly well-made and stylish. I think I must wear a different piece each week and always receive compliments. Whenever I have a magazine shoot or broadcast interview, I wear Smart Glass - " -Laura Turner Seydel, eco-lifestyle expert and activist "Kathleen's pieces are some of the greatest little treasures I've ever uncovered." -Summer Rayne Oakes, eco-fashion expert Kathleen & Smart Glass have been featured on The Today Show, and in the Washington Post, Bon Appetit, Pink (one of WSS's favorite magazines), Intown Atlanta, TreeHugger.com, SocialDiva.com, Sundance Film Festival, and countless others The influence of Kathleen and her Smart Glass is so great that she has been commissioned to design a sculpture, using her recycled glass rings, for the United Nations. And the best part (we think)? Smart Glass will custom make a line of jewelry (or ornaments) for your spa or boutique from your empty bottles! Does your business use products packaged in glass bottles (i.e. skin care or beverages)? Is your city or town known for a certain bottled beverage (i.e. water, wine, or beer)? Why not let Smart Glass recycle your empties into products which are unique to your business and set you apart from the others (not to mention improve your bottom line)? Aveda and Coke do...why shouldn't you? Smart Glass even makes custom lamp fixtures using recycled glass rings (time to redecorate!). Don't have any empties for your own line, no problem, Smart Glass has a beautiful line of their own for you made from water, Coke, wine, beer, Skyy Vodka, and many other bottles. Own an Aveda Spa? Contact us about the Aveda line made especially for Aveda Spas from recycled Aveda bottles. Does recycling get any cooler than this? We think not!
