Recycled Bombay Sapphire Gin Bottles Necklace or Earrings
Oh yeah; mini bar Bombay gin bottles with a seaglass style finish make beautiful necklaces and earrings, and what a great conversation starter, too!
The aqua gin squares are approximately 1.5 inches across and are made of Bombay Sapphire gin bottles with a beautiful matte finish. You can choose the metal to be sterling silver or gold filled.
The necklace is adjustable from 18" - 20" and the earrings hang from a French hook.
Each piece is patented, and please expect some slight variation as the jewelry is individually crafted by Kathleen.
All Smart Glass Jewelry purchases come beautifully boxed with an artist card, handcrafted and recycled story, and bottle key card included.

Here are some words from the artist, Kathleen Plate:
Creating art from empty bottles is the ultimate alchemy and way to combine my love of ecology with my love of art , fashion, and architecture. I love finding beauty in the unexpected, and breaking what others' call "rules." This led me to combine processes from different mediums (glass, ceramics, stone work) and develop a new material derived from recycled glass bottles that I was able to patent and use as the building blocks of jewelry designs. The entire process, from dumpster diving for empties to styling the perfect piece of jewelry for a night out on the town is part of my art. I like to create things that are easy to wear, simple and beautiful, and when people realize I made their jewelry from empty beer bottles, or sake bottles, or Coca-Cola bottles, they can't believe it. I love keeping a bottle in its original shape, color, and size, yet transforming it so radically people are stunned by its beauty. Everything is made by hand in my Atlanta, GA studio (yes it looks like a frat party blew up in my studio with empty bottles everywhere), and no I do not drink them all myself. We collect bottles from local bars, restaurants, friends, and dumpsters to make your beautiful Smart Glass Recycled Jewelry.
