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.

Thank you for your support and I can’t wait to unveil Fall 2014!


These smooth glass studs come in “Bottle Blue” or “Heineken Green”. These studs are better than pearls. How do they get so round? Well it's completely up to the mood of my kiln that day :) Learn More.»

Blue Square Stud Earrings

Handmade Square Studs using glass that I collect from the 9th Ward of New Orleans. After crushing glass bottles, I get inspired by the raw form. So I kept these in a more textured and crushed form. Learn More.»
