If I don't do this, I'll kick myself really hard every time I look at the swap gallery!
The last one was soooo cool!

But what I will need to know is if my partners want a more traditional kind of wire and bead earrings since I posted a tutorial and everyone knows how to make my computer earrings? I can make normal ones if I have to  Wink

P.S. For the last swap I bought a package of 10 bubble envelopes that were the perfect size (4 inches x 7 inches) for about $4 at Walmart and postage and delivery confirmation per package (USA) were about $1 each which wasn't bad.

oh that sounds right up my alley- i was thinking of checking walmart Smiley

does anyone know of any good online tutorials for earrings? I tend to stick to the same general idea for the ones I make and I think this swap would be a good idea to learn some new techniques! Smiley

Were you the swapper that made those AWESOME shrinky dink earrings? If you were my partner I would kill (Ok maybe not that) for a pair of those olive chandelier earrings, seriously I almost PMed you after reading the swap gallery to ask if I could buy a pair. Not that it's cool to request something specific or anything... but since you brought it up.....

So basically if I'm any indication, I would got with the computer ones they were really really amazing.

Somehow I missed that whole thing lol
I didn't get to see that Sad But, I wouldn't be opposed to getting your computer earrings if we were partners! If people made you post a tutorial, they must have been awesome! Wink

Thanks Boblink - but they aren't shrinky dinks - they're duct tape and photo paper. It's amazing how many people liked the olives : ) And if we were partnered you could request anything you wanted ; )

and jMi - here's the tut for my computer earrings : )

Oh those are definitely cute!
And I see why everyone flipped over the olive ones! You should make some little martini glass ones Wink lol I've been trying so hard to find little martini glass shaped beads/charms for earrings (going on a cruise in a month!) and I can't find them anywhere Sad

kaleesi - I love your computer earrings! I especially like that you call them that. I would like more & I'm sure that everyone would like some too!

jMi - I found some martini charms. They're a little expensive (for me I guess!) but at least they're something, right? Maybe I could add martini earrings to your likes list?
