I'm ready for an influx of new blood in my bead stash! So let's trade some off. For this swap we will mail off to 2 partners a stuffed 2" x 3" baggie (the ones for earrings that they sell at all the craft stores) of beads from our stash. So don't spend any money other than postage. A mix of beads, doesn't matter if they all go together or not. Obviously don't send plastic or wood, but let's leave it open other than that. Metal, stone, glass, clay,vintage, whatever. And don't send a bunch of seed beads either, some are OK but not all. I think that covers it. No recent no sends, I will review profiles prior to assigning partners and if you look flaky I will message you before allowing you to stay in the swap. Newbies welcome with a filled out profile and, as always, anyone that flakes will incur really nasty karma. International because they are so much fun and a small amount of beads shouldn't be that expensive to send.

Really don't mean to be rude (honestly) but why no wood beads? I can understand no plastic but wood beads can be beautiful. I've seen this on other swaps so am just wondering.

b/c most people can't use wood, i think is why. I have wood beads that i never use

I have seen some gorgeous wooden beads as well but I think that what we are trying to avoid are those weird dyed ones that you see on macrame, would be hard to use. I don't think anyone would complain if you sent some fantabulous carved wooden bead but I don't want to open the door to the majority of icky wooden ones.

One mans rubbish is another mans treasure (as the saying goes here in England). I also, like wooden beads,but agree there are some tacky ones, but that goes with all beads, I think its more to do with the person sending them than the beads themselves?! Tricky one.

passionatetr - You nailed it!

Hi, I just signed up for this swap. I live in Australia and as far as I know bringing in wood items are not allowed. I am not sure if they are able to check in post, but I do not wish for any hold-ups by custom.

Could I send polymer clay beads I made myself? Something like this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2490/38988863276ba72a0bc3m.jpg But will be mixed with some lovely Czech glass. Please let me know. Thanks

What a cool thing to do redrubyonfire! I think most of us would be very happy to receive those.

Hi there! I just joined this swap, and am looking forward to it. I do not mind unique wood beads, handmade polymer beads that are cute, aqua, green, or whites. And reds, but then again I am not all that picky ^_^

Ok so i am new to this whole thing, when do I find out who I am supposed to send my beads to? I'm so excited have been looking for something like this to get rid of some beads and get some great new ones!

nmterrier 02/24/2010 #

PrincessPink - You find out after the last day to sign up, you'll get an email telling you it's time to swap. We're all ready for new bead blood, I think!

My partner still hasnt sent my items, what am I to do? She hasn't even been online since 2/13. I was really looking forward to this swap, but this stinks!

paraparatara 03/15/2010 #

Princess Pink, if you mail me your info I will send you something when I get back home to my beads. (This will be appx 1 week from Today)

nmterrier 03/17/2010 #
