Fenton USA Jewelry Presents. . . Handcrafted Pendants & Necklaces

Our Fenton 2015 Jewelry Collection includes colorful Fenton Art Glass beads in a variety of treatments paired with accessories to make a unique fashion statement. These necklaces were designed by Jena Lane Blair. The hand applied decorations on the glass were designed by Truda "TJ" Mendenhall. All of our necklaces have a hypoallergenic and tarnish resistant coating. Shown above are our Turtles and Turquoise, Let Your Heart Soar and Spirit of the Wolf necklaces.

Turtles and Turquoise - Waves of white opalino glass create the perfect setting for our charming sea turtle on this unique turquoise bead. Made in the USA, this 33" antique pewter necklace also has Swarovski turquoise glass accents. The word "PATHWAYS" is embossed on the reverse side of this bead.

 

Let Your Heart Soar - The name says it all! This 38" antique pewter layered chain necklace features our lovely handcrafted Grace pendant. The word "GRACE" is embossed on the reverse side of the pendant. A Tree of Life charm completes this necklace.

 

Spirit of the Wolf - Truda "TJ" Mendenhall said this design is her vision of the cry of a lone wolf. Swirls of blue and white form the glass canvas. The word "SOLITUDE" is embossed on the reverse side of the pendant. The 26" necklace is accented with black onyx beads and a feather dangle charm.
