Made in America handcrafted Green and Gold Vasa Murrhina Art Glass Bead with approx. 3/16'' sterling silver core embossed with Fenton USA. Designed by Jena Lane Blair. A popular Fenton Art Glass treatment from the 1970s returns as wearable art glass creations!
Vasa Murrhina is an ancient, time-honored technique, involving the use of finely crushed glass called frit. Fenton Art Glass first made such items in the mid-1960s, after many trials with various colors of frit. Over the past 40+ years, Fenton made Vasa Murrhina pieces from time to time in the Connoisseur Collection or other special groupings. Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary from 1/2'' to 5/8'' in diameter.
Inspired by the beautiful pieces of Fenton Vasa Murrhina in her parents' collection, Jena said one of her goals was to revive the Vasa Murrhina treatment for Fenton's handcrafted glass beads. You'll delight in shimmering effect the gold aventurine frit (finely ground glass)!
