3881  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Craft Me Some Jewelry Rd. 1 (Sign-ups 08/01- 08/15 Send outs 9/19) on: August 10, 2009 07:22:33 PM
So when do we find out who our partners are?  Also, a quick question about the size swap part.  I have some nicer gemstone, how do you count that if you use them.  I still have alot of glass gems, but I've started purchasing actual natural gems to such as topaz, amethests and citrines.  I also have different types of metal from brass to 14k gold, how should these be calculated?
Thanks!!

hmm I'm wondering this too...I'm sort of a newbie at jewelry making and I'm actually a bit worried about using expensive gems and metals (comparatively to the usual silver tone wires, copper, glass beads, etc that I've played a bit with) in case I screw up with them.  I also use stuff like yarn, which would probably not cost as much in materials...so while the effort and time put into something may be the same, the value in materials might not be.  Do you just determine how much you're willing to spend with your partner when you get them?
It is my first time swap too I am working on trying new things every day. I like the idea of swapping what we made for something made for us.

Well, Craftster guidelines state:  

By Time
-Big/3 points = 3 or more hours
-Medium/2 points = 2 or more hours
-Little/1 point = 1 or less hours

By Size
-Big/3 points = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium/2 points = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small/1 point = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets

By Price
-Big/3 points = $30 or more
-Medium/2 points = $10-$30 dollars
-Small/1 point = $10 or less

But the best way to deal with things, is to communicate with your partner, so both feel that the trade is fair.  And when in doubt, talk it out.  
...but I usually just end up spoiling my partners.  ;-)

Now of course I want to watch that...  instead of doing the dishes.

Ok, the lovely Ronda worked her magic and convinced me to listen to myself, since clearly I've been telling myself to come play with you guys...  I'll send in my questionnaire soon.

From what I can see, in this swap, and in my Bead Soup Swap, it's just the Australian 'Man' trying to keep us down.  Who'd have thought that?  I mean, c'mon, the Australians I know are always so nice.  And let's face it, their tourism bureau is working their butts off to get us to go visit there and meet the lovely people/beautiful landscape of Australia.  They keep telling me how "welcome" I am there...  but then they steal swap packages!  I think we should tell the tourism bureau that large numbers of American tourists are boycotting the country while the Postal Service holds our packages hostage...

eek! ..im itching to get partners still  Cheesy
Me too!!!

Hehehehe... Well, we still have 7 more days of sign-ups, or I will close early if we hit 24 swappers.  So unless both of you can strong arm 7 more people to join BEFORE that day, you'll just have to be patient little crafters.  ;-)

P.S.  Every time I see the thumbnail of the picture for this swap thread in the list, I ALWAYS look for the Old Man in the Mountain in the rock face.  I guess you can take the girl out of New Hampshire, but not the New Hampshire out of the girl.  Lol.

I have the world's noisiest mailbox, but the quietest mailman.  I can go check the mail, and have nothing there.  Then be sitting in the living room or office (which share the front wall of the house, that the mailbox is on), and my husband can come home 10 minutes later, and nosily retrieve the mail, which mysteriously and silently appeared in the last 10 mins.  Freaks me out.  Sadly I'm not waiting for the mail for my package.  I have to wait for my partner to get back to town so we can exchange in person...  And I have to get off my butt and wrap all her presents.  :-)

I'm fairly sure that discussing injuring the mailman causes bad swap karma...
