Amethyst is a beautiful purple stone, known as a “Gem of Fire” by ancient cultures. It has been greatly sought after and prized throughout history. It is found in many locations around the world. The purple color, in various shades and hues, is caused by the presence of Manganese and Iron in the stone. The name comes from the Greek word for "not intoxicated". At one time, Amethyst was believed to prevent someone from getting drunk.

A note about colors - different monitors display colors differently and, especially with glass, the color can look totally different in different light. If color is critical, please message me.

Meet the Maker

Cinjo Handmade is a one-woman, micro-business in the foothills of North Peoria, outside of Phoenix, Arizona. I grew up in the Phoenix area and returned here to retire in 2012 after a 31-year career as a chemical engineer in Texas and Illinois. Needing to keep busy in retirement, I decided to use my beading skills, honed during long Chicago winters, to make wind chimes paired with stained glass. I learned how to cut, drill and grind stained glass pieces and started the business in 2018.

In 2019, I discovered kiln-formed glass and fell in love! Kiln-formed glass is less likely to chip or break so it works much better for the wind chimes. Plus, there are so many design options! Kiln-formed glass is an art form that involves melting glass in a kiln at temperatures to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit and even beyond. The piece always starts out flat, in single or multiple layers and is then either slumped, draped, dropped or cast to form various shapes. Along the way, the glass is embellished, painted, combed or otherwise improved. Each piece is often fused in the kiln two or more times, each firing usually taking more than 10 hours, sometimes even days. There are many ways to create fused glass art; so many techniques, it would take more than a lifetime to learn them all. It’s very fun and you will often hear fused glass artists saying that the highlight of their day is opening that kiln to see the beautiful result.

Everything I sell is handmade, by me, in my home studio.

I'm combining my technical and analytical skills from years of operating chemical plants with my new-found and growing creative side. I don't really consider myself an "artist" but a "maker". I love learning and trying new techniques while keeping my pieces simple and pleasing. I create glass for the home and garden - wind chimes, sun-catchers, dishes, garden and yard art. In addition to selling online, I participate in markets and art shows in the Phoenix area. See my website and social media for my show schedule.

Wondering where the name "Cinjo" came from? I often get asked. My middle name is "Jo" so Cinjo stands for Cindy Jo. Simple, right?

Thanks for visiting Cinjo Handmade!

How it’s Made

Cinjo's "Sun Chimes" - named so because they are sun catchers and wind chimes in one piece of decor - are made in two steps. First, sheets of glass are cut and fired in an electronically-controlled kiln in my home studio to harden the glass, smooth the surface and add hanging wire. For some chimes, I like to paint a design onto the glass using glass enamels or add baubles and other design elements. The glass is then re-fired so that the new design is permanently fused into the glass. Glass pieces are attached to stainless steel wire and beads are strung onto the wire. I use small seed beads to fully cover any exposed wire.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is "fused glass"?

Fused glass is glass that has been heat formed in a kiln, also known as "kiln-formed glass".

What is the best way to hang a Cinjo wind chime?

The wind chimes are a simple design - one long wire covered in beads with glass pieces at each end. The middle of the wire is draped over a nail or hook or from a small tree branch. The glass pieces clink together to create a subtle sound while the beads reflect the sunlight.  You want the pieces of glass to be close enough to generate the sound.

Do the glass wind chimes break?

Glass items are fragile and can break. Please handle with care. Try to avoid hanging wind chimes very close to stationary objects that could be hit by the glass and cause breakage. A protected area is best. However, fused glass is very strong and can hold up to most situations without breaking or chipping.
