      My mother had very few glass bells in her collection. Any that she had were given to her by friends and students. After I inherited her collection, I realized that all those metal bells were beautiful and meaningful but the collection lacked color so I began buying a colorful glass bell once in awhile. They have really added interest to my collection.

      Among my convention bells are several, colorful glass bells. If I were to choose my favorite, I would have to say it is the 2010 bell. The 2010 bell is a hand blown glass bell made by Ron Hinkle of Buckhannon, West Virginia. The bell has a clear base and a cranberry colored drape at the top of the dome. The blue handle features a twist and is applied. It has a curl at the top. The clapper is a bead madewith both clear and cranberry glass and is suspended on a gold chair.

      The bell is inscribed with “ABA 2010 Cleveland, Ohio”. It is 6.5″ tall and is 4.75″ in diameter. There were 140 of these bells made.
