Then I opened the wedding budget, and things were not looking good for me. Enter Alchemy, the portal for custom item requests on Etsy. I created a request detailing I was looking for, and the price I was hoping for. I received 5 or 6 replies, and was immediately drawn to the work of bddesigns. I love the look of hammered jewelery, and I thought that a set of her inscribed stacking rings would complement my e-ring nicely.
For just a little bit more, we set up a a payment that would include a trio of engraved stacking rings for myself, and a wedding band for That Groom. She was very prompt to reply to my emails, and we had soon settled on a price and a design. I was pumped to have her offer to send me photos of the creation process. Shots like that are a bloggers dream.
