Textile Gems TM

Self-employed, together with my husband in our business Textile Gems TM, our handcrafted arts business--founded in 2002--creates jewelry and home decor items from vintage ethnic textiles.  Generally, we sell
wholesale to museum shops but we also do a few retail shows during
May and October each year, here in New York City.

We are also avid collectors of unique vintage and and antique ethnic textiles from around the globe. 

Our newest venture is Textile Gems TM Greeting Cards, and our card lines currently include 32 blank cards showcasing some of our favorite textile crops photographed from our collections.  You can see them on this page.

Artist statement:  Our mantra is:   "Celebrating the Fibers of our Multicultural Lives."

This can be literal or interpretive.  We love presenting uniquely beautiful textile crops in close-up formats which both showcase their artistry and also act as charming visual portals to learning about other cultures.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
