Details of swap:
This swap is not a partner swap. There will be two groups of six, so every swapper mails to five people. Swappers will be making either 1 or 2 pendants for each member of their group, which will be assigned basically at random.  

The pendants can be made from any medium: leather, resin, cloth, beads, clay, bottle caps, rocks, glass, scrabble tiles, etc. Just make them awesome! If you sign up for two pendants, make sure you dont send the EXACT same thing. Ex. They can both be scrabble tile pendants, just a different image on each. You don't need to make a fully beaded necklace, this is a pendant swap, but please attach the pendant to a chain or cord or whatever goes around your recipient's neck.

Once the swap is closed I will send out addresses to all participants in your group. But you can start crafting now.


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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What medium will you be using?
If you had a choice, would you pick gold or silver?
What are your FAVORITE colors?
What is your LEAST favorite color?
Describe your style in 3 words or less(funky, girly, steampunk, etc.):
Any allergies/concerns?
Do you have a wist/pintrest and if so, link please?
Do you want to swap one or two pendants? (two will only occur if at least six swappers want to send two)

Please understand these questions are only a guide. You may not receive your exact favorite color, but hopefully it wont be your least favorite either. I really want this to be flake free, so only commit if you are truly willing to send to the amount of people you sign up for. But if you want to tailor the pendant specifically to each member by stalking posts, wists, etc., that is ok too.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

This swap looks like so much fun but I'm concerned about the cost of shipping..... sending six packages.... hmmmm
Just wondering if it would be better (and I'm just asking, not trying to upset or disrupt), but would it be better to ship to one main person with the cost of a second shipping inside the box? Then that main person can redistribute into several shippings but cost would have been covered by everyone?  
Yeah I know, my family tells me all the time that I make too many waves....

Dreadlady- I hope you get your feedback soon. You were a love to have in the last round.

Jai- Sucks to hear about the temp negative. Maybe by some miracle it'll get to Germany next week!

In groups of six you'd be sending out five packages. Just like the SSS you're currently in, ThriftyLiving4U  Smiley Last round every package I got came in a bubble envelope, which means shipping's about 2 bucks each.

I don't think it's making waves to think of alternatives, but I just read the swap guide, and swaps in which everything is sent to one person then redistributed aren't allowed. Besides, if you're sending cash in a package all of a sudden it's a much bigger deal if it gets lost. *shrugs* I hope you'll still consider joining.
