“Through Broken Plates, I harness the reflective and colorful characteristics of blown glass for distinctive, modern jewelry and product design.”
Established in 2013, Broken Plates offers a line of modern glass earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Artist Gillian Preston blends traditional glassmaking techniques, hand-drawn imagery, and precision CNC fabrication to create her distinctive jewelry line. Through a process of intricate cuts and finishes, she explores the reflective, colorful, and optical characteristics of glass. The result are versatile, sculptural wearables that transcend trends and showcase innovation with design.
