Burmese Story. . .
Frank M. Fenton had a
passion for glass color chemistry and he worked closely with
Fenton chemists to recapture several of the famous heat-sensitive
art glass colors of the late 19th century. Frank was always
intrigued by the challenges of recreating vivid hues, such as
Burmese, for the Fenton product line.
Frederick Shirley patented Burmese
ware in 1885. Mr. Shirley substituted cobalt and/or copper oxide
for uranium oxide in his formula and the result was the pale
yellow of Burmese turning to a delicate, pale blue. The gold
present in the formula caused the glass to become pink when
portions were reheated. The resulting pink/blue combination, made
all the more intriguing and subtle by a velvet-like acid finish,
Shown below are a few other limited

handpainted figurines are must haves for collectors or as a gift
for someone special. Beautiful Lavender glass handpainted with a
lovely floral design make the Egg on a Stand a real treasure. Our
Hyacinth Duck figurine will brighten any home with his cheery
handpainted hearts and polka-dot pattern. Special in color and
design is our Blue Burmese Butterfly figurine. A popular legend is
that if you capture a butterfly, whisper a wish to it and then
release it. . . the butterfly will carry your wish to the heavens
and the wish will come true.

Our Latest Offering of Fenton Handcrafted Beads. . .
We are pleased to introduce
eye-catching new styles in our line of handcrafted glass beads. Shown
here (left to right) are our Natural Pearl, Aquamarine and Glacier Focal
beads. . . attractive accessories to suit all your fashion styles!
Pearlized beads were designed
by Jena Lane Blair and have a soft, satin luster. Jena's
inspiration for these beautiful pearlized glass beads were
nature's treasures from the ocean, so we call them Sea
Treasures. In addition to the Natural color, our Pearlized
beads are also available in Golden, Azure, Blush, and Sky.
Precious metals add a new dimension to glass beads. They are
used in two forms, melted into the glass formulas or added as pure
metals to the bead during the forming process. Because of the
handmade process, bead size may vary in size, but most will be
approx. 1'' in length and 3/4'' in diameter. Our new Glacier
Focal bead was designed by Jena Lane Blair. She describes this
bead as "ever changing, melting, moving, freezing, magical!" The
icy blue pools in Glacier are formed from inclusions of pure
copper. Aquamarine is a Robin's Egg Blue glass iridized Vasa
Murrhina bead, a time-honored Fenton Art Glass treatment using
gold aventurine frit (finely ground glass).
Fenton beads are compatible with and
will fit most major brands of bracelets and necklaces. Jewelry
accessories are currently not available through the Fenton web
site. Click on each bead for details or

Fenton jewelry collection.
