Drinking Your Way to Success

This amazing line of jewelry by artist and designer Kathleen Plate was really the stand out line I saw at the contemporary art show I recently attended in Las vegas. It meets all my citeria for great design and with a "twist". If you look closely at the gorgeous glass colors of the simple, clean, edited circles which make up the necklace designs you will recognize the colors. They would be beer bottle brown, wine bottle green and finally coco cola bottle wintergreen. So go out, buy some beer, drink a few bottles of wine, throw in a few cokes and then instead of throwing away the evidence of your latest binge turn it into a fabulous inovative line of eco friendly jewelry. Now why didn't I think of that. cleeeever, k

Oh and I hope you like Kstyle's new look. Am in the process of adding all the links back in one at a time and as you know I had a lot. Am dividing by country so if I put you in the wrong place please let me know. I should have everyone back in a few days so if I left anyone out please holler. enjoy, k

Thank you so much. This has been a major endeavor and still have much tweaking and editing to do but YAY! the worst is over and I'm pretty happy with it. And I did it all myself. Was constantly on the verge of calling in the professionals but in the end such great resources just a click away I was able to persevere. whew! k

WEbsite is looking great, K and I wish I'd thought of doing this with bottles. Isn't it inspiring to think of all the undiscovered fun media out there?
