Another reason why I love Etsy!

As I've stated in several previous posts, I have many reasons why I love Etsy - not only as a seller but also as a buyer. I wanted to share an experience with a wonderful Etsian that I came across last week - Cisco from mncmoon. Cisco makes hand stamped word art sterling silver jewelry and she is very talented at what she does. Last week I had sent her a convo (same as email but through Etsy) asking her questions about one of her pendants. She responded quickly and said that for the font I wanted, the pendant would have to be different than pictured since the font was too big to fit on the pendant I was asking about. Since I'm not good at picturing what things would look like without the materials right in front of me (I'm a CPA with way too much left brain), I told her I would just go with the one already in her shop.

Cisco then surprised me with a convo saying that she wanted to make a pendant like she was describing to me anyway and she'd go ahead and do it for a sample of future listings in her shop. I was under no obligation if I didn't like it. She said she had already started stamping it! I'm so glad she made it because when she sent me the pictures of the final product, I was blown away! I absolutely loved it! It's perfect and it couldn't be more "me"! I can't wait to get it and I know I'll love it even more in person!

As you can tell by the date, this pendant is a gift to myself to celebrate our upcoming 20th anniversary. I wanted something special and thanks to Cisco, I got that and more!

Cisco is having a "Christmas in July" sale through July 31st so if you are in need of a gift for yourself or for someone special, be sure to check out her shop. She has lots of beautiful pieces to choose from and she does custom orders too!
