Fenton USA Presents. . .
Now Available: Retired. . . While Supplies
From their hands to your heart, our
talented glass artists delight in creating new designs
and colors for our art glass jewelry. Therefore, each
year we must "retire" a certain number of our
handcrafted beads to allow room for new styles. Bead
selections shown here were designed by Jena Lane Blair
(see profile below).
Included in her bead designs are "Vasa Murrhina", a term which means
"vessel of gems." Each unique Fenton bead captures a
glittering layer of Goldstone. Our beadmakers use
extreme care to maintain its sparkle in the hot flame.
Tiny bits of colored glass add a variety of hues in each
different design, and no two are identical! This
difficult process is one of the secrets of Fenton
quality and the brilliance of our beads.
Other designs by Jena include "Aurora" and "Encased"
beads. Aurora beads have swirls of color and gold which
create a shimmering aura. Jena's eye-catching Encased
beads feature a thick layer of clear glass floating over
a design made of multiple colors of glass.

USA Jewelry Artist Profile. . . Jena Lane Blair
Lane Blair designs our handcrafted glass jewelry using
remarkable, creative techniques. A beadmaking class several
years ago led to Jena creating her own jewelry. Her "can do"
attitude inspired us to form Fenton USA Jewelry. From Aurora
and Encased to Three Dimensional and Vasa Murrhina, Jena's
creates the lovely designs for the glass beads and pendants
used in our bracelets, earrings and necklaces. She is always
striving to create new, innovating designs and styles of
wearable art glass jewelry. Jena began sewing and doing
embroidery at the age of four. She designed and made doll
clothes and built dollhouses from cardboard boxes and used
gift wrap as wallpaper. Jena discovered theater in elementary
school and that led to a 40-year involvement in the performing
arts. She still loves beautiful fabrics and music and says
that they influence her jewelry design.
Jena says she "loves
being rewarded for doing something she truly loves, artwork!"
