Stretch bracelets are lots of fun to make and to wear! I love to stack them up with lots of colors and shapes plus a little glitz here and there. Wouldn’t it be fun to build your collection with some swapping jewelers from all over the country?

For this swap you will need to make a set of 3 stretch bracelets for each of 3 swap partners for a total of 9 bracelets. Your bracelets can be made of any kind of beads though I would recommend using higher quality acrylics if those are your choice and there are some very nice ones out there. Check your partners’ profiles to see what colors they like and if there’s a theme you can put together for them. Many of us have massive bead stashes to dive into and this is a great way to use some of them up! Be creative, use whatever you would like to include small charms, metal beads and a crystal or two!

These bracelets make up pretty quickly but we’ll do a 2 week time period so you’ll have plenty of time to find your beads and create spectacular pieces!

Everyone with a rating of 4.5 or higher is welcome in this swap including new Swap-Bot members however it’s meant to be fun and to share our creativity so please don’t join unless you plan to make your bracelets and send them to your partners. I will angel if there are any problems.

Why plastic? Not sure everyone knows "quality" since they can be purchased in any drugstore. I have a huuuuuge stash, none of which are plastic. I don't want to be disappointed nor would I want anyone else disappointed.

I agree actually, acrylics would not be my first choice either however I would hate to rule them out completely and spoil someone's design who may have been thinking of using some vintage pieces to construct their bracelets. I have also updated the swap description to be more clear about the total number of bracelets.

This will be my first swap and I am excited. I love to make jewelry and stretch bracelets are such a fun little project. I wear many different styles myself and I spend a lot of time constructing them with my daughters.
