Breathing new life into
a century old art form...
M’s Jemz provides a vast variety of contemporary quilling in all shapes, sizes, and price points. I try to keep up with the trends and offer something for everyone. Customs are always welcome.’
I had recently given birth to my daughter and needed to find something to fill my quiet, creative time while she napped. I began folding paper cranes — thousands of them — but wasn’t really sure what I was going to use them for. One day I had an idea to add my leftover beads and turn them into mobiles. My passion for paper crafts sort of snowballed from there.
While on Facebook one afternoon, an advertisement for a quilling kit caught my eye. Although I wasn’t entirely sure what the craft entailed, my birthday was right around the corner, and I shared the gift idea with my husband. A few days later, even though I may not have realized it at the time, my destiny was delivered to my doorstep.
I look at the world in a different way now — it’s all about shapes. I’ll come upon a leaf or a sailboat floating in the water and think to myself, ‘I can quill that.’
My art work has been featured in Michiana Life magazine, and recently received an honorable mention in a national juried art exhibit at South Haven Center for the Arts.
You can always find me selling my quilling on the bluff , Krasl, South Haven Center for the Arts, and different changing locations all over town.
In addition to quilling custom orders, my artwork can also be found at the Krasl Art Center and various local craft fairs and artisan markets. Send me a message and let me know how I can help!
