Handcrafted jewelry and accessories sustainably made from upcycled glass, leather and metal. Many pieces have a floral or botanical theme, making them an especially good fit for a garden show.
About the Artist
Kathy Bonte is a Mountain View, CA designer, maker, educator and entrepreneur who loves the challenge of turning recycled materials into fashionable objects. She launched Yellow Rose in the fall of 2016 and happily applies her eco-alchemy to a variety of materials, including up-cycled plastic or metal, cast-off zippers, hardware store treasures and a plethora of leather and textile swatches discarded by the interior design community. From casual easy-to-wear pendants and wrap bracelets to statement necklaces and cuffs, her lightweight handcrafted pieces juxtapose a feminine sensibility with a bold, modern edge. Her work has been featured at several Bay Area artisan and holiday fairs and is currently on sale at Shady Lane Gallery in Menlo Park, CA, and Present in downtown Los Altos.
