Washington native, Kathleen Plate creates elegant, contemporary recycled glass jewelry from her Georgia studio. Plate crafts rings from glass cored from the bottom of wine bottles then hand sets them into sterling silver.

Ms. Plate also uses recycled glass in many of her bracelets, necklaces, earrings, cufflinks and rings and has one line licensed by the Coca-Cola company.

Kathleen Plate’s recycled glass jewelry would be the perfect compliment to Playback Clothing‘s recycled material garments. Stats for Recycled Glass Jewelry Trending: Older & Buzzing
