Precious Metals designed by Terry Henry
This Made in America handcrafted Storm glass Bead was designed by Terry Henry, a visiting bead artist at Fenton. The Storm bead reminders one of gathering clouds, a prelude to a summer shower. This bead requires a third type of heating, cooling and reheating of metals in the glass to make clouds within the bead. 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. Terry Henry’s designs use metal infused glass to create three completely different effects.
Terry Henry, a California native, took her first flame working class in March of 2005 and immediately fell in love with beadmaking. Terry has taken additional classes from an array of exceptional instructors across the country. She is an award-winning glass artist and authored articles for the major bead journals. The beauty of Terry’s precious metal beadwork brings a new direction to Fenton. Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary from 1/2'' to 5/8'' in diameter.
