Designed by Truda ''TJ'' Mendenhall and Jena Lane Blair
Made in America handcrafted and handpainted Charlotte glass Three Dimensional Bead with approx. 3/16'' sterling silver core embossed with Fenton USA. The bead design is by Jena Lane Blair and the handpainted design by Fenton artist Truda "TJ" Mendenhall... "Oh, the web she weaves!" Creating a three-dimensional bead is like ''painting with glass'' according to Jena.The bead color is reddish-orange.
Painting with molten glass to create beautiful three dimensional artwork requires a steady hand and keen eye. The bead artisan carefully applies the thread-like strands of glass to the hot bead, being ever watchful not to melt the artwork while maintaining the bead temperature of 900 degrees. Each flower, leaf, animal, or berry is added one at a time and then secured to the bead.
Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary from 1/2'' to 5/8'' in diameter.
