I'm making this swap open to Newbies to give them the chance to participate in a non-intensive Type 3 swap & to earn the trust of more seasoned swappers on Swap-Bot. :o)

Shipping should be very cheap (even if sent internationally) since bracelets aren't that heavy or large! :o)

It's a very basic swap. Essentially, you need to send 1 partner - 1 handmade bracelet (one that you made yourself). No plastic beads!

There are 3 kinds of bracelets that are acceptable for this swap...

  • A bracelet made with beads and stretchy cord. This type of bracelet requires no clasp. Stretchy bracelet

Stretchy bracelet example # 2

  • A bracelet made with beads, metal cord and a clasp.

Bracelet with clasp

Bracelets in categories # 1 & # 2 should NOT be made with string because this can easily break!

Design of the bracelet is SENDER'S CHOICE!

After you sign up, PLEASE ENTER YOUR WRIST SIZE IN THE COMMENTS SECTION IN INCHES OR CENTIMETERS. Here is a link where you can convert the units in case you don't have the appropriate ruler at home.

How to earn hearts? Well, it is up to the receiver to decide if they would like to award a heart along with the rating. However, if you would like some ideas on how to make your swap more special, here you go....

Since the swap is very simple, you could perhaps decorate the envelope, or enclose a letter, or a small profile surprise (check your partner's profile to see what might interest them). You could design the bracelet with your partner's favorite colors, etc.

Regarding participants:

  • all participants should have a filled out profile.
  • no non-rated swappers
  • no swappers with 1's on their profile (you need to take care of your previous obligations...)
  • no "chronic 3" swappers - those swappers who consistently get rated a 3 because they don't follow the swap description or who send extremely late
  • no swappers with the majority of their swaps being Type 1 (electronic swaps)

Anyone who dares to flake on this swap will:

  • be reported to FOPS
  • will find that it's not easy to participate in Swap-Bot afterwards
  • will receive the Flying Hamster of Doom curse
  • will earn some bad karma

As swap coordinator, I reserve the right to ban anyone that I find suspicious or that I believe may not follow through on their obligations for the swap.

Thanks and have fun! :o)

Hiya All ᵔᴥᵔ My wrist size is 7 inchs, I love silver (Not keen on gold colors at all) other then that I'm easy, if you want to make it real personal have a look through my profile ᵔᴥᵔ I love Black though lol

Also I make things with polymer clay, if I want to make a one of charm or two or five (LOL) to put on the bracelet (that is something my swap partner likes) is that ok?

My wrist size is 7" thanks :)

Hi gang! I have a very small wrist...5 1/2 " so I would prefer a stretch or memory wire bracelet. Thanx loveliest!

My wrist is 18cm or 7 inches. I can't wear bracelets with lots of hanging beads and charms, because they make a sound when they move and it drives me crazy and they also tickle my wrists. One or two hanging charms are alright but no more, please!

AZBobbi 10/17/2012 #

My wrist size is 7.25 inches, but I prefer thicker bracelets a bit oversized. Thanks!

Hello: 7 1/2 please.. Open to your talents! :)

Lilyluzkay 10/17/2012 #

My wrists are small but I like to stack my bracelets so anything in the 6-8in. range would fit me. <- this comment cut and pasted from the last one ;)

7 inches Also I prefer not to send or receive stretchy cord :-p. I'm not sure what metal cord is but I have wire chain and beadalon. My favorite is fire wire which is string but special in remarkable bead string. I can do cooler stuff with that if my swap partner doesn't mind

BethinaBel 10/17/2012 #

Skinny wrists! 6 1/2", prefer memory wire or stretchy, I have arthritis and have a hard time with clasps!

hachiko 10/17/2012 #

I can probably wear a 6" or 6 1/2" bracelet. Whoever gets me name let me know & we can work out the details. Thanx!

alwolferd 10/18/2012 #

my wrist size is 7.5 to 7.75 inches! :)
