Details of swap: STEAMPUNK CHARM SWAP
Each member of this swap will make 7 charms in the steampunk style and mail 6 of them on to her 6 partners. This should be a quick and easy swap with little stress.

What is steampunk style? Wikipedia describes steampunk art as items that “employ appropriate materials (such as polished brass, iron, and wood) with design elements and craftsmanship consistent with the Victorian era.” So gears, old keys, locks, pieces of clockwork…basically whatever looks technologically appropriate for Britain under the reign of good Queen Bess.

1. Each charm should be no larger than 1 inch squared.

2. Each charm should have a jump ring attached.


3. Swappers can make their charms all the same for all 6 partners (sweat shop style) or all different or any combination of same and different.

4. Swappers can feel free to make a personal arrangement with their partners to swap more than 1 charm, but this is optional and not required for the swap.

5. Swappers can request charms to match their vision for their finished piece, but this is no guarantee they will receive charms that fit their theme. (For example, a swapper could say: I plan to make a charm necklace with copper findings in the theme of “celestial steampunk” with moons and stars and gears. Partners could choose to work with this theme or not.)

6. Each charm should be mailed securely to make sure that it will not be damaged. Wrap it in bubble wrap, tape up the envelope securely and write “non machinable” on the envelope.

7. Delivery confirmation is required for this swap. Ye Olde Craftster Mods say ‘anything that canst have delivery confirmation, shallst have delivery confirmation.’ The fact that our envelopes will have something lumpy in them makes them delivery confirmationable.

8. Because I just completed my business math class, I will now do a little calculation for your enjoyment. Cheesy Let us assume we all ship in large envelopes weighing 3 ounces including our charms.

Cost for shipping = (price of shipping + non-machinable charge + Delivery Confirmation) * 6
Cost for shipping = (1.22 + .20 + .70) * 6
Cost for shipping = (2.12) * 6
Cost for shipping = 12.72


This is of course only a rough estimate of shipping to 6 partners from US to US, but you get the idea. Make sure you have fundage!


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Anything else we need to know?

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I so want to join! Let me go finish up a few things and then I'll feel better about joining this one. If I finish up at least one of the two I'm working on I'm joining this and the Glee swap!

Like craftsters view of crafting, I think that if you have a skill, you should be willing to share it. Wink

This looks like such an awesome swap...so tempting! I don't think I have any supplies for it though... Where are people acquiring their pieces to create their charm and more importantly, what method are you planning to use to keep them together?

I bought an ounce of gears and watch parts online for about 17$...a word of warning. My gears are tiny. Tiny, tiny tiny. I've got to either figure out how to use those, or break out the much larger Tim Holtz gears I bought at Michaels. I was hoping for a size in the middle of that, but I can't afford more. Grin

For most of mine I asked my Grandpa who is addicted to household sales to give me any broken beyond fixing old pocket watches... there were a surprising amount of them. Findings are extras that my mom bought, probably from Fire Mountain... they have some awesome stuff. There are also some interesting charms at Micheal's that I'll probably use.
