beadedbyamy-
Maybe! Depends on the type!  Grin I personally don't like to use HUGE (and to me, huge is like, 1.5 cm or larger) beads in very many things, and even then, usually as a focal only. (OK, except in bracelets, but chunky bracelets are the exception!) Some of my favorite beads are actually 6mm or less.....

ditto.

So it sounds like there will be some others that will be wanting/giving smaller beads?

Would it be ok if it was a mixture of smaller size beads and would it of a similar quantity?

I'm sure it would be fine katcal.  :-)
I'm leaving it up to individual partners to decided what is "fair" with various sized beads.  Please make sure to talk to your partners, and read their questionnaires thoroughly, so you can all be happy swappers!

I've been looking through my stash, and I've got beads ranging from tiny seed beads, to giant wooden ones and I hope my partners like a variety Smiley  The wooden ones are actually really pretty, they've got kind of a stained or painted design  on them and I really like it, they're just a little big and I've never known what to do with them...

Hi everyone.  Just as a reminder, I will be closing signups tomorrow night, at 6:00pm, Central Time.  If you're still interested, get those questionnaires in before that!

ok - if our fearless leader goes along with this...

I personally have way tons more beads than I could ever want - and am forever finding bargains so getting more...

my DD chibi neko wants acrylic or plastic round or shaped beads and E beads to make rainbow stretchy bracelets with for her friends for GLBT pride, or else some charms or things to make ribbon chokers for herself (her eyes lit up over skulls) - and taking her shopping for a bucket of beads always ends up costing about $75 by the time she gets done looking at all the things that are NOT beads (you know how that goes) and that she will never use.

so - she is joining the swap, and getting partners and receiving the packages, and raiding my stash to send things to partners, with my willing assistance and aid  Grin 

I will also immediately volunteer to angel if you need one
(yes, my stash is that big)  Undecided 
but I have committed myself to other swaps so can't join this one right now...

 Grin since she is the one wanting the beads, it is only fair that she join the swap, LOL!

Ronda
Blessings!
