We recently had a cute girl from China come and stay with us for 2 weeks. While she was here, we had SO much fun introducing her to the way we do things in America. I absolutely loved having her here and wanted to keep her….I know that sounds like a dog, but I really could have kept her and been happy! From about day 2 we could tell that we had a bond with her that would be something special for a really long time. I was already dreading having her leave and wanted to get her something special to remind her of her trip to Utah/America. I went shopping and couldn’t find anything. I was stumped. I turned to Etsy, like I do when I need an amazing gift or idea. I came across Silver Statements. I sent Allison a custom request asking her for suggestions and this is what we came up with:
It was exactly what I wanted and it turned out perfectly! I was amazed at the quality of the pieces. The metal is thick and heavy duty. We gave it to our new friend at the end of her trip and she loved it. Once I had given it away, I had to have more! I may have a slight addiction to Silver Statements, now! Allison hooked me up with a custom ring that I couldn’t have done it better myself! She and I brainstormed and came up with exactly what I was looking for. Here is the thing, I don’t wear a wedding ring to work because my ring has a bent prong and I don’t want to loose my diamond. I am constantly using hand sanitizer and that makes the cheap ones turn my finger green. The Dr that I work for gives me a hard time because I have been asked out by patients a few times (which I find super flattering ) to wear a ring. SOLUTION!!
She made me a wrap around ring that is hammered-just cuz it looks cute. On the outside it has a heart and 7.13.2000, our anniversary. On the inside it says “Forever No Matter What.” I love how it turned out! I looks amazing, fits perfect and is exactly what I had in mind. Allison helped though the entire personalizing part. She gave me hints and tips on what will fit and what will look good. She offers a variety of different fonts to put on her selection of items. She does rings, key chains, bracelets, cuff links…she is amazing! I love that she also has fun little designs that she can add to your piece to personalize it even more. I am dying to order my friend and I cute little cuff bracelets for our 1/2 marathon that we are going to brave in a few weeks that say “She Believed She Could….So She Did” on the inside and a 13.1 on the outside. Cute huh?? Another Allison idea!! Like I said, She is amazing! Not only does she do amazing work, it is all very affordable, too. Any of her items would make amazing gifts. It would be fun to add a cute key chain to a diaper bag with the baby’s name and birthday. Or a cuff bracelet for that super hard person to shop for. What about a teacher gift, school is starting soon! The hardest part is deciding what you want it to say!
