You will likely get a whole bunch of bids and then you pick the shop that you best think will make your product.  If you work out a deal, then they will make the item and you are responsible for paying for it.

I think you are obligated to pay once it ships.  I may be wrong.  Check out their previous work to see if it matches what you want.  I think any seller worth their salt will make sure you’re happy before asking for payment.

Hi! I love etsy but what is the Alchemy? I don’t know how that works…

sorry, I know that isn’t helpful AT ALL to you but I’m curious now 🙂

I did an alchemy request a few months ago and included a picture of a headpiece I was interested in.  I wanted something “very similar” but had one or two changes that I wanted made.  The final product was not what I expected.  I asked for a few alterations, but still it wasn’t really what I was expected.  Anyways, in the end I did feel obligated to pay for it…  I mean the person spent their time and supplies making the product.  The quality wasn’t terrible or anything, it just wasn’t exactly what I wanted :/

I think you’ll have the best bet if you find something you like that someone already makes and ask them to customize it. That way you already know the style is right. If you post on here what you want I bet someone can suggest an etsy seller who can make something like it.
