A Love Affair with Color
My interest in fused glass began as a casual affair. Multicolored glass in a shop window caught my eye. You might say it was love at first sight!
The seemingly endless colors of raw glass enchanted me. The shop offered classes on fused glass so I signed up for a couple. I was instantly hooked!
I realized I could create fused glass pendants to accessorize my colorful wardrobe. with my colorful wardrobe. Soon I found myself creating and baking batches and batches of fused glass pendants in the kiln at the glass shop where I stumbled upon the fusing class. Excited by my new yummy pendants, I shared a few with a few fellow color-lovers, It wasn't long before family, friends, friends of friends, co-workers, and neighbors were gobbling up my creations.
When someone said my glass looked good enough to eat, the "yummies" brand was born. Since I started CJ Yummies in 2006, I have created and sold hundreds of yummies.
Now the CJ Yummies collection includes a range of jewelry items, home decor pieces, and accessories, all in delicious, mouth-watering colors. Yummies can be found in personal collections in United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Europe, Brazil, and Middle East. Follow CJyummies on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
I've always loved color, however I had a long career in public relations before I started CJ Yummies. In 1985 when big-do's were the thing and "dress for success" was my mantra, I graduated from University of Georgia with a journalism degree. After graduation I lived in Atlanta and worked at a few advertising agencies and PR firms before I settled down in Charleston with my husband, a native Charlestonian. For over a decade I coordinated public relations for Drayton Hall, a historic 18th century plantation house. I did a little consulting work following Drayton Hall, all the while doing the power-mom dance of juggling family and career.
I am so happy to have found a way to share my love for color with the world. I hope my art brightens your day and leaves a smile on your face.
