I have been largely unable to individually thank everyone for the faves (and I'm a bit slow returning comments), but please know how much I appreciate your support.  And truly, thank you so much to those who have financially supported my art.  I wouldn't be able to keep creating if not for you :heart:

In other exciting news, I am dangerously close to 1,000 favorites in my Etsy shop.  I'd like to pause for a moment, insert some happy swearing, and then continue pondering in amazement...

If you would be kind enough to help me break and/or go past my Etsy milestone, please find my shop here

So many thank you's :rose:

Journal History


Hilary Kamien
United States
Quintessential Arts is Elegant Handmade Jewelry for all elements of life.

I'm rather in love with the idea of capturing and preserving the beauty of the forest, making it something you can bring with you, wherever you may be.

I am a recent herbal sciences graduate from Bastyr University and I like to incorporate my herbal knowledge with my jewelry whenever possible. Plants, especially medicinal ones, are a huge part of my life and it brings me great joy to bring them into yours :heart:

I love making custom pieces. Don't hesitate to ask if there is something I can bring to life for you~

Silver metal clay is 99% pure silver containing recycled silver, in an organic clay-like binder. For some pieces, I water down the silver clay and paint it on layer by layer (50 layers!) and let it dry between each painting. For others, I make a mold of the leaf or press it directly into the clay. I form and cut, file, torch, sand, and polish each piece all by hand.

If you would like to try selling on Etsy with 40 free listings (I get them too once you list your first item!), you can use this link:
