Welcome to

My World Of Gems…

When people ask
me what I do,
I like to tell them

“I make the biggest diamonds in the world…
But instead of using the hardest substance on earth, I use the softest — cloth.” – MJ Kinman, Textile Artist

Original Artwork

Years ago, an image of a lovely crystal arrived in my mailbox. That little gem not only caught my attention, it grabbed hold of my soul. In doing so, it launched a journey that has enriched my life. May you experience as much joy in viewing them as I have had in creating them. For the gems that are still available, the price is noted in the details. These are original pieces created by textile artist MJ Kinman.

For Quilt Artists & Shops

It’s my pleasure to share with you my passion for light and color through classes, events, and now my new line of patterns, fabric, and publications. I have designed my patterns so that even a “confident beginner” quilt artists can create sparkling gemstones using the same techniques I use to create my giant gem portraits.

Proud to Support Healing TREE

A portion of my patterns is donated to Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Empowerment). Healing TREE advocates healing from trauma, rather than just coping with symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society.
