It helps to be vague, the more descriptive you are the more it’ll narrow down your search. You’ll get more results but whenyou narrowthe price bigger chanceyou find something you’ll like. Also synonyms. Describing same thing different way since every seller it’s different. Example if you search “cat” also search kitten, kitty, whatever lol.

@LadyMoriarty:  How about an engraved guitar pick necklace? Some of them look a little sloppy, but there are a few that look nice.

@LadyMoriarty:  Ah, I think those were the “thin metal punch out shapes” you were talking about. You’re right: they do look kind of crappy. Can you get her a collection of items? I like this Moleskine music notebook:

I also think this treble clef ring is cute:

I’ve always gotten generic gifts as a bridesmaid, so I don’t have too many ideas. Hopefully someone else does!

@LadyMoriarty:  you can’t blame the Etsy site itself for not having the specific item you’re looking for. It’s up to the artisade to decide what their craft is. Perhaps you can e-mail one of them and ask for something customized? Many of them will accommodate anything you ask them or. It’s not like they’re mass produced. Or you could shop somewhere else besides Etsy.

I have a friend that sells on Etsy, she has necklaces that are a glass locket. They have little charms you can customize and put in them. I know she has guitars and tons of other liitle things you can put in them … here is  a link
