A Gift from the Heart . . . Fenton's Heartstrings Collection
Our Heartstrings Collection celebrates the
love and special bonds you share with your daughter, mom,
grandma, nana, sister, friend, or someone special in your
life. This lovely collection features hand applied
decorations designed by Truda "TJ" Mendenhall.
Shown above are our Heartstrings Collection beads. Those
with more than one decoration show all views for each
bead. Included with every Fenton bead is a story card that bears a personal
message. For example, Granddaughter: "Granddaughters
tickle our hearts.'' and Mom: "You've held my hand, and
will always hold my heart.''
Shown at left are the most recent additions to our
Shine Like A Star with a story card that reads: "Be a
Diamond in the Milky Way." and
Your Guardian Angel, with a story card that reads
"Watch for miracles, they happen every day"
Each bead has a sterling silver core
(approx. 3/16" dia.) embossed with Fenton USA. In an age
of mass production, Fenton remains committed to honoring
the tradition of expressive, handmade creations. Each
Fenton Made in America bead bears the signature of
handcraftsmanship; those slight variations that convey
distinction, character and charm. The handcrafted Fenton
glass bead collection includes many of Fenton's unique
glass colors and historic treatments. Fenton is the only
bead maker creating beads using high-fired enamel paints,
giving Fenton's beads unmatched design flexibility and
strong durability. Fenton beads are designed by lampwork
artist Jena Lane Blair with the distinctive hand applied
decorations created by Fenton decorator Truda Mendenhall.
Fenton beads are compatible with and will fit most
major brands of bracelets and necklaces, including
Fenton's line of
handcrafted accessories. Click on each bead image for
details and give a gift from the heart this holiday season
with Fenton USA Jewelry.
Own a bit of Fenton history. . .
Here’s a great opportunity to acquire some
wonderful Fenton Art Glass memorabilia: three different stock
certificates. The stock certificate with the vignette of an Eagle
at the top center (shown top left) was first used to issue
“Preferred Stock” prior to 1910. The stock certificate with the
vignette of a train at the top center was first used to issue
“Capital Stock” in the 1920s. The stock certificate printed in red
tones with the Eagle vignette at top center was first used to issue “Capital Stock” in the
1950s. All of these financial instruments
are blank, and, of course, cannot be used in any sort of financial
transaction today. A limited quantity of these three stock certificates
are available at $40 for the set and free shipping via USPS Priority Mail.
These six black-and-white photos were created from original
postcards or snapshots in the Fenton Art Glass Company
archives. Each 5" x 7" borderless photo is printed on
high-quality photo paper.
This set of six photos is $39 + $5.95 shipping via USPS
Priority Mail and just nine sets are available!
