Fenton USA Jewelry Presents. . .
A Gift from the Heart . . . Fenton's Heartstrings Collection

Our Heartstrings Collection celebrates the love and special bonds you share with your daughter, mom, grandma, nana, sister, friend, or someone special in your life. This lovely collection features hand applied decorations designed by Truda "TJ"  Mendenhall. Shown above are our Heartstrings Collection beads. Those with more than one decoration show all views for each bead. Included with every Fenton bead is a story card that bears a personal message. For example,  Granddaughter: "Granddaughters tickle our hearts.'' and Mom: "You've held my hand, and will always hold my heart.''

Shown at left are the most recent additions to our Heartstrings Collection:
Shine Like A Star with a story card that reads: "Be a Diamond in the Milky Way." and Your Guardian Angel, with a story card that reads "Watch for miracles, they happen every day"


Each bead has a sterling silver core (approx. 3/16" dia.) embossed with Fenton USA. In an age of mass production, Fenton remains committed to honoring the tradition of expressive, handmade creations. Each Fenton Made in America bead bears the signature of handcraftsmanship; those slight variations that convey distinction, character and charm. The handcrafted Fenton glass bead collection includes many of Fenton's unique glass colors and historic treatments. Fenton is the only bead maker creating beads using high-fired enamel paints, giving Fenton's beads unmatched design flexibility and strong durability. Fenton beads are designed by lampwork artist Jena Lane Blair with the distinctive hand applied decorations created by Fenton decorator Truda Mendenhall. Fenton  beads are compatible with and will fit most major brands of bracelets and necklaces, including Fenton's line of handcrafted accessories. Click on each bead image for details and give a gift from the heart this holiday season with Fenton USA Jewelry.

Own a bit of Fenton history. . .

Here’s a great opportunity to acquire some wonderful Fenton Art Glass memorabilia: three different stock certificates. The stock certificate with the vignette of an Eagle at the top center (shown top left) was first used to issue “Preferred Stock” prior to 1910. The stock certificate with the vignette of a train at the top center was first used to issue “Capital Stock” in the 1920s. The stock certificate printed in red tones with the Eagle vignette at top center was first used to issue “Capital Stock” in the 1950s. All of these financial instruments are blank, and, of course, cannot be used in any sort of financial transaction today. A limited quantity of these three stock certificates are available at $40 for the set and free shipping via USPS Priority Mail.

These six black-and-white photos were created from original postcards or snapshots in the Fenton Art Glass Company archives. Each 5" x 7" borderless photo is printed on high-quality photo paper. This set of six photos is $39 + $5.95 shipping via USPS Priority Mail and just nine sets are available!

Photo 1. “The Fenton Art Glass Plant” c. 1907. A great view of the factory made from an original postcard.

Photo 2. “Selecting Room Fenton Art Glass Works”

c. 1907 Made from an original postcard, this photo shows women in period dress working to select and pack glassware. Lehr “2” is visible in the background.

Photo 3. Group of men and boys taking a break outside the factory, c. 1910. These are probably employees from the glassmaking area. Made from an original snapshot.

Photo 4. “Decorating Room of the Fenton Art Glass Works” c. 1907. Made from an original postcard, this photo shows women seated in the decorating work area with lots of glassware.

Photo 5. Group of 19 employees (men, women and boys) pose for a snapshot outside the factory. Lots of smiling faces! One young man is wearing a military-style cap, so we think this photo dates just after World War I. Made from an original snapshot.

Photo 6. Group of men and women who worked in the packing and shipping area taking a break outside the factory. They are standing and sitting on and around a vintage car that’s just visible! Made from an original snapshot.


To order these stock certificates and photos, please contact the Fenton Gift Shop (800-319-7793, ext. 342) or send an email: listing the items you wish to purchase.

NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to offer new Limited Edition selections. Each piece features a design by our award-winning Fenton artists, and will be hand painted, signed and dated. Included in this grouping are an 11" Alley Cat, an Opal Satin 5.5" Ghost and Crown Tuscan 6" Owl figurine, each handcrafted in Crown Tuscan, as well as an 12.5" Opal Satin Amphora with stand.

The Alley Cat, Ghost and Owl figurine were handcrafted by Mosser Glass and the Opal Satin Amphora with stand was made by Davis-Lynch Glass. Each of these pieces was made exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop, using a Fenton mould.


You can't help but feel ready to go play in the snow with our Crown Tuscan Alley Cat. The hand painted design, by Kim Barley, says it all: "Let It Snow!" featuring a grinning snowman posing in a snowy landscape with a feathered friend. Kim added whimsical details to this figurine, and the words "Let It Snow!" go around the front half.

The snowman's upraised arm holds a golden star, matching the ones on the cat's "jingle bells" collar. Note the cute little blue bird sitting on the front paw, the falling snow and the snow-covered trees on the left, and the word "joy" on the stitched pocket patch on the back leg. Each Let It Snow! Alley Cat figurine is $250 and limited to just nine pieces!

Kim continues her "Let It Snow" theme by transforming our Opal Satin Ghost figurine into a laughing Snowman! She added her signature whimsical touch with falling snowflakes, golden stars, a heart-shaped tree topper and a stylized Cardinal. Each Let It Snow Ghost figurine is $95.
Pre-orders for the Let It Snow Alley Cat and the Let It Snow Ghost figurine will be accepted until midnight Monday, November 2nd.

As this Opal Satin Amphora was being carried through the room for photography,

a number of people stopped to admire the hand painted "Zebra with Foal" design by Robin Spindler. Robin's decision to depict a mother Zebra with her young suits this Amphora perfectly!


Robin airbrushed the background with soft, blue tones, then added the bold stripes and spots of jungle animals to the top and bottom plus a large leaf design on the back. Each Amphora comes with an antique brass finished stand.


Just think what a statement this set will make when displayed in your home! Each Zebra with Foal Amphora and stand is $280.


Frances Burton airbrushed the background of this Crown Tuscan Owl figurine in soft tones, then completed her design with colorful accents to the eyes and head. Note the smaller owl perched on a branch! Each Owl Buddies Owl figurine is $90. Pre-orders for the Zebra with Foal Amphora with stand and the Owl Buddies figurine will be accepted until midnight on Wednesday, November 4th.
