Curated Treasury: "Brave: Leslie Zemenek"

Our featured Etsy treasury, "Brave: Leslie Zemenek", spotlights the gorgeous, bold, art jewelry of Leslie Zemenek, from the Etsy shop Leslie Zemenek Jewelry, in Portland, OR.

Through Leslie Zemenek Jewelry, Leslie Zemenek shares her handmade, bold, metal and gemstone jewelry. Leslie has been making art since, "I was old enough to hold a pencil."

"When I was 12 years old I read a quote from Oscar Wilde that changed my life: “One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.” I took it very seriously. During most of my life I either made art, wore art or lived artfully, but only recently did I figure out how to do it all at the same time.

I started dreaming my designs in my sleep, more than I could possibly produce in my waking hours. I can't say whether I'm having more fun at night dreaming new designs or during the day working at my bench making them real. And I'm not even sure it matters!"

Please take the time to browse Leslie Zemenek Jewelry on Etsy.

We also encourage you to take the time to visit the shops of the artists featured in this treasury, explore the variety of their work, and learn more about them.

We hope you enjoy this treasury.

Etsy Treasuries have been an extraordinary opportunity to introduce us to new artists and shops.

We are pleased to be presenting just a small fraction of the fabulous Treasuries that have been curated by Etsy shop owners.

We encourage you to discover more Etsy Treasuries, and Etsy shops, on your own.

You can support Etsy shops online, all over the world, in your locality, or visit a shop, in person, at an event near you.
