Yummy & Company

“I’ve always loved jewelry,” says Jennifer Wilfong of Yummy & Company in Baltimore, Md. “I can remember making clover necklaces, crowns, bracelets and rings as a child.” Although she took a detour in college, studying painting at West Virginia University, and began her career as a painter who tackled large-scale dramatic pieces, it didn’t take much to convert Wilfong to jewelry.

When Wilfong and her husband Paul (a restoration carpenter) moved to Baltimore, they began renovating their old stone mill house, which inspired her to work on a smaller scale.

And only two years in, she already has three complete lines. Her copper pieces are all created from recycled copper Paul brings home. “The copper already has an amazing patina,” Wilfong says. “I love incorporating the natural beauty of those colors into my pieces.” Her second series is formed from polymer clay—with one caveat: she’s limited the palette to black. Wilfong uses this as a challenge to expand her designs, and explore form, texture and shape.

Her newest work is a series of one-of-a-kind compositions with white inlay polymer clay. Works with carved designs like “Floral Pendant 2” and “Queen Anne’s Lace Ring” (both pictured) create a nice contrast to her more three-dimensional “Flowers” and “Ruffles.” To view more of Wilfong’s work, click here.
