Design by Truda ''TJ'' Mendenhall and Jena Lane Blair
From the 2012 Holiday Collection, our handcrafted Christmas Eve glass Bead features a whimsical mouse peeking out of a stocking and it is also three dimensional! The handpainted design is by Truda ''TJ'' Mendenhall and the three-dimensional design is by Jena Lane Blair. Creating the three-dimensional bead is like ''painting with glass'' according to Jena.
This bead reminds us that ...''Not a creature was stirring...not even a mouse..." This three-dimensional bead is handcrafted in Milk Glass, then droplets of light gray glass are added for the mouse head and ears. The bead's look is finished with handpainted accents. Jena describes the three dimensional beadmaking process as ..."painting with fine threads of glass!"
Each handpainted bead has the initials of the talented Fenton artist who completed it. The bead has an approx. 3/16'' sterling silver core embossed with Fenton USA. Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary in size. Free Shipping on this item! To view more Made in America handcrafted glass beads, click here.
