Smart Glass Recycled Jewelry
This lariat necklace can be worn in multiple ways, all of them chic. Five bars made from recycled bottle glass dangle from a 24-inch antiqued-brass chain.
Little did Kathleen Plate know, when she created a pair of earrings for a friend's birthday while a graduate student, that it would lead to her own business, Smart Glass Jewelry. A professional designer now for more than 17 years, she crafts her recycled-glass pieces from her Atlanta studio.
