Chilean artisans work a small piece of recycled bottle glass into a charming tiny dish perfect for holding a ring. Etched with a silver leaf pattern, the dish measures 2.25 by 2.25 inches.
Created for Global Crafts by Green Glass Chile these reclaimed and upcycled bottles are turned into glassware. Some pieces make the most of the original deep jeweled colors of the bottles accenting them further by etching natural designs like leaves and vines into the glass.
Started 15 years ago by RPCV Renice Jones and her VSO husband, Kevin Ward, Global Crafts promotes fair trade while working with artisan groups to help alleviate poverty through trade. They have been working with Haitian artisans since 2007.
