I have always loved bird watching. When I saw that Fenton Glass Jewelry had such an amazing collection of hand painted bird beads, I was instantly hooked! I have never seen such an incredible variety of bird beads! I just had to start a collection! ❤️🐦
I now have enough Fenton birds to fill an entire bracelet! That was my initial goal. However, I intend to continue to add to my collection! They are just so exquisite! I have cardinals, flamingos, robins, several blue birds, a blue jay, a chickadee, a sparrow, and a calico bird!
The Cardinal on Pine is definitely my favorite bird for the holidays! It was Fenton’s best selling Christmas bead in 2018! However, I love to wear it throughout the year. I must confess, that it’s my all time favorite bird as well! That vibrant pop of red against the snowy landscape is simply breathtaking!
“A Cardinal is a messenger from heaven!”
Do you have any Fenton bird favorites? Please let me know in the Comments Section!
I look forward to hearing from my bead friends!❤️🐦
I have collected so many Christmas decorations over the years. The vintage decorations and glass ornaments passed down from my grandmother are truly cherished because they connect me to Christmases past spent with my loving family. Actually, both my grandmother and my mom were collectors, just like myself. They collected English china, (especially teacups), and of course the amazing glass ornaments of yesteryear. There are so many lovely memories attached to these decorations!
As the years went by, I added my own meaningful ornaments to my collection and my daughters began to look forward to the annual tradition of unboxing the family ornaments. Of course, I have so many in my collection now that some unfortunately, don’t end up on the Christmas tree! However, we all enjoy unwrapping them nonetheless!
Over past few years, I have collected many of the Pandora porcelain Christmas ornaments. However, because they are so delicate and fragile, I don’t hang them on my tree. But, when I saw the Rockettes bauble with matching charm inside, I simply had to indulge! Unfortunately, I missed out on the the red Rockettes ornament from 2017. However, I recently stumbled upon it purely by accident! Once again, I simply had to indulge. It was too beautiful to pass up!
In recent years, I have focused on collecting charms and beads. There is something so special about these miniature treasures! I love rearranging them on different bracelets and bangles! The possibilities are endless. After all, they are the collectables of the future and they will be passed down to my own lovely daughters! Each tiny charm or bead, represents something memorable and meaningful which truly connects us to future generations.
