Yes, you should post your work so that your swap partner can get a feel for your style and give you things you will be likely to use. Plus the beading category has been stagnant for a few days, it needs to see some action.  Smiley

That's a great idea!  I'd be fine with people using this thread to post a few pictures/links of their work for their partners to see.  I've been really bad about not posting in the jewelry boards, but anyone who's interested can check out the link to my etsy shop (for swap ideas - I'm not advertising!  Wink).

any excuse not to fold laundry!! Here is some of my earlier work. Now I make stuff and give away!

I was going to try and sell this style in a varity of colors but it never worked out, but i kept these for myself. Sorry the silver beads are tarnish cause I haven't worn them in awhile and they need to be polished! you know how silver gets!


These pendents were my grandma's and the blue crystals were these hidious clipon earrings so I re-did it. I didn't have necklaces to go with the pendents so I made the necklaces for the pendents.


Necklaces I made for my mom's wedding and then misc earrings that I like


And My favorite earrings ever! I made them to match my favorite necklace that I didn't make at all but love because it is so vintage and sparkly! Some of the beads in this were from another hidious designed earrings of my grandma's and they matched the necklace


Here is my favorite necklace even though I didn't make it. I have been thinking of restringing it though! 



I hope I get someone from the east coast because they can get stuff like this super cheap because it is in thrift stores. I live on the West Coast and they mark stuff like this up!

If this is too much please delete it if you would like!

So...I don't make jewelry - I put beads on bags and use them as zipper pulls for clutches, etc. 

However, I have a ton of jewelry-ish beads I can't wait to send to my partner!

ok everyone, just two more days to sign up!  I should be caught up with in progress feedback (it probably looks weird in your profile - we're working on that) and the swapper list in the first post.

I'm tentatively working on matching partners and y'all are making it easy so far - woo hoo!

Let me know if you have any questions!,
