1771 Philadelphia Glass Works
1771 Philadelphia Glassworks is a glass manufacturer located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We specialize in creating handcrafted, artisan glass jewelry, beads, and products. Our unique glass-making techniques are showcased in our brands, such as Fenton Glass Jewelry and Bel Vetro.
Our team of artists and creatives take pride in making hand-decorated beads using high-fired ceramic glazes, unique colors, and historic treatments. Each piece bears the signature of handcraftsmanship; slight variations that convey distinction, character, and charm.
In support of the trade and glass artists, we collaborate with some of the finest schools with glass art programs to give artists the opportunity to develop their craft.
We believe in sustainable design when creating glass pieces. Glass is one of the most sustainable man made materials. It uses raw natural materials and is fully recyclable. Our products are made-to-order locally at our Philadelphia glass workshop and are not mass-produced.
Philadelphia has a rich history in glass manufacturing and was the glass capital of the colonies. 1771 is committed to continuing this tradition of American glass-making.
Handcrafted with care in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and proudly made in America.
