Unfortunately, I was stuck in the school computer lab until 6pm the other night fulfilling some idiotic district mandate (can I get in trouble for broadcasting that over the internet?).
When I needed to let some steam escape from my overtaxed brain, I struck up conversation with one of my colleagues who is in the wedding planning process.
We specifically talked about Etsy and what a wonderful, delightful, surprisingly splendid place it can be for inexpensive, hand-crafted, beautiful engagement/wedding rings.
Like this ring for $68.
I don't know much about the nuances of jewelry (I'm guessing sterling silver isn't as good as gold?), but there are a lot of different options on Etsy.
Any good Etsy leads?
