Work in progress….Fall 2014 Collection
In 2009, YB Green was created to raise awareness that the City of New Orleans has not recycled glass since Hurricane Katrina and there is a community need for it. YB Green collects glass bottles from the 9th Ward in New Orleans, and then it is crushed, melted and designed into jewelry.
Right now, I am working on incorporating traditional European glass-making and silversmithing techniques into this new material–glass bottles. While I am working on these new techniques, you can shop the classics that put me on the map. YB Green is available at A Show of Hands in Alexandria, VA, the Katzen Museum Shop at American University in Washington DC, and Big Cartel and DAWANDA.
