Details of Swap:
Do you have a drawer full of jewelry that you haven't worn in years earring, necklaces, bits and pieces? I was inspired to organize this swap when I saw a fellow crafter transform her old jewelry odds and ends into a beautiful necklace full of stories.
**You will be crafting 1 necklace or 1 bracelet - that will be your partners choice. The number of addons ( charms ) will be up to you and your junk jewery pile, make it interesting and have fun.  Here is your chance to really clean out your junk jewelry drawer. Please include a list or story of each charm that you add to your creation - it's fun to read where everything came from.



1. Part of a child's earring, possible Barbie branded, that I have somehow acquired. Not the best story for number one.
2. A nice Orange bead. Again, source unknown.
3. The pendent of a necklace given to me by my Nana. As I don't wear small, understated pieces, I've never been able to use it.
4. A brass ring, possibly from a curtain rail.
5. A purple star from said expensive eBay necklace that turned out to be from New Look.
6. Part of a lovely Accessorize necklace that came apart.
7. The back of a giant diamond (real, obviously) from a Jinny Loves Rosie bracelet given to me for Christmas by my beautiful boyfriend, Jinny.
8. I love shells. This is not a real one though, but a fake one. From Hobby craft. What a sell out.
9. A playing card earring from eBay. It looked much nicer in the picture.
10. This used to have a blue oval stone in it, and it used to be part of a bracelet from Topshop.
11. A pendent from a necklace given to me by a child when I was a child. I loved it. It was turquoise, it had glitter in it, and it was in the shape of a heart for gaudiness sake.
12. Another pendent from my Nana, this time it wasn't one of her old pieces, but from a black plaited bracelet, possible as a souvenir from somewhere like Malta.
13. A piece of a belt from Next.
Here is your chance to take those junk jewelry bits and pieces - put them together in a whole new way. If you can include a list

ooooh I may have to do this.

Do we need to use only things from our stash, or can we go out and buy stuff that reminds us of a story or something meaningful to us? I have some great stuff that I've wanted to use for something and haven't had an opportunity to!


Title: Re: Junk Jewerly Necklace Swap (signup 1/27/09 - 2/9/09)
Post by: beadedbyamy on January 27, 2009 06:54:46 PM
oh, and do I understand that we're only sending the necklace? Can we send other goodies if we want to? Is there a certain amount of charms we should put on it?

You can use your stash or buy - I just love they way you can take junk and then turn it in to something wonderful!
You don't have to make a necklace - a bracket or a pretty broach.

I'm really tempted to join this swap but I just signed up for 2 others and I don't want to neglect anything. It would, however, be an excuse to purchase some more vintage gumball machine charms.

I love the necklace in the picture and adore the idea of a story/explanation for each charm! If I don't sign up, I'm totally going to keep my eye on this! Great idea!

I've been really into refashioned jewelry lately, but not so much the charmy stuff as necklaces made from other necklaces and bits of cloth and things, like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18253071  (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18253071) or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20069590 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20069590).  Do we have to be into charms to participate?  ;)  

Seriously, tho, I'd be really into making a necklace of old necklaces and flotsom, but I'm not so into plastic jewelry and charms (to wear myself).  What are the parameters exactly?

It can be any odd and ends that you have in your junk jewelry drawer - use can use earrings ( I have a lot of missing earrings matches that would be perfect to add to the necklace ) It doesn't have to be a "charm" - it's just a collection of things that you could part with and share it with your partner. Just a fun way to turn something that is maybe setting in a bottom of a drawer and hasn't seen daylite in many years into something beautiful to share and create.

how can you be part of a swap when they all require to you have already been a part of 2 of them before??? i've been wanting to do a swap for along time.... and every swap i see you have to have done them before... what gives?

Actually, most swaps don't require you to have swapped before (and this one doesn't). Where are you reading that? The only requirement about first time swaps is you have to complete one swap successfully before you start to do more than one swap at a time.

I usually watch the Superbowl, just for the hilarious commercials, but this year we canceled our television, so I couldn't! So in honor of the occasion, I watched Adam Sandler's Waterboy instead. Much more entertaining than an actual game.

Just sent my questionnaire in!  :D Hope it reads ok, my keyboard is slightly broken (as in I have to whack the spacebar every time I need a space plus several letters need the same treatment...) I read it through several times but I'm paranoid thanks to my friend who pointed out "with your broken keyboard it just looks like you're typing drunk" Cheers... If it doesn't read right please tell me!

Here's another cool necklace: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13187695 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13187695)

And a couple more. You have to look at the "sold" section of this etsy shop because there's nothing in the shop at the moment:
http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=13447459 (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=13447459)

Ooh all the inspiration posts are fun!! Wish I could visit all of them but I'm being kicked off the computer right now! Lol!
Darn other ppl in the house!

YAY! Can't wait for partners!!

I found a nice pile of stuff I want to use, just have to work out how to attach some things, and wait and find out if my partner wants a necklace or bracelet and contour it to their style preference...and all that fun stuff...yay!

But yea..the attaching has me a bit fuddled... :-\ ???

Yesterday was a very productive day because I stay at home due a stomach infection  :( so I started to assambled the necklace. I have a lot of ideas but my partner only gave me a few details of her preferences so I focused on one of the hints she gave me and started to work. So far the necklace looks pretty nice but I have to add more details to cherish my partner.

I picked up a few tiny bags of assorted jewelry bits at my favorite thrift store (it's closing, boo!!), and am having a blast sorting through all my odds & ends -I think this is one of the most inspiring swap themes ever!  ;D

I have created a pile of pieces I want to use and created a file with pictures of necklaces to inspire me. I want to think hard about different shapes the necklace could have before I get started.

I sort of started mine for my partner, but now I might not like it...I might sort of hate it..but somtimes I go through a period like that with my projects before I begin to like them again..lol.
Anyone not using chain for the base? That's the direction I was going, but now I'm thinking maybe I should use chain.
Perhaps I'll ask my partner what she thinks about that. (Hi Sam!!)

Hey Mary!  I'm totally indifferent about whether or not you use chain.  I love chain, (I'm using chain for yours!) but at the same time I have a hundred necklaces made with chain and I trust your judgement, so I'm not too worried!


As for a progress update, I've got a small mound of things to use, all of which I'm excited about!  I made the base, and I'm just now starting to attach charms.  I feel like I'll be done wayyyy before the deadline, how does everyone else feel about sending early?  Just curious.   :D

OK. SUPER excited right now. I had almost everything I needed for this, save some chain (which I never seem to have on hand for some reason) and a focal point. I couldn't find ANYTHING inspiring for the focal piece...and then...the gods of eBay smiled upon me. I found the most awesome, gorgeous focal piece ever...it's going to kill me to send it away! Argh!

(Don't worry kmac, I didn't spend much!)

I started working on this project the first day and more or less finished one, so I started another. Now, I am working on a third necklace because I can't decide which one to send - they are all in completely different styles.

All that to say, I'm cool with sending early. I am having a heck of a time deciding which one is the best one to send in this swap!!

I feel like once I get the supplies in, I won't be able to stop working on it, so it'll go very fast. And I for sure will be sending at least a week early, because I'm on vacation the week of sendouts. I imagine I'll probably ship around the first of March or so.

angeleyes, I'm not using a chain.  I think it looks great so far (I've got the charms/beads laid out but not attached yet), but hopefully that'swhatshesaid agrees with me!

Yesterday I went up to my craft room to just gather supplies - and ended up designing and working on Calliel's necklace.  Now if I can just figure out a few technical problems......
As to the chain - no chain question - I am using chain in the necklace - but as of now no charms will be on that part.

Yesterday afternoon I ended up sorting my pile of charms and Kaboom! I just started on the necklace and couldn't stop. I need to write out the story of the charms and I'm done. And tighten a few jump rings - those things can be wily.  ;)

It feels v. loosely thematic...I'm going to give it a name.

I used a chain as well. I hope you like it, lylmousy!

Oh - it's cool to send early - just irritating to those of us who send on the last day  ;D In other swaps I have sent both early and at the last minute.  In this swap - if things keep progressing as they have so far - I should be able to send in a week or so.

Had a bit of a glue mess up - was considering trying gold leafing to fix it - but then had the brilliant idea to try steel wool - which I happened to have.  It is taking the excess glue off and polishing the metal.  I rarely use steel wool and am so glad I thought of it this time.

.....I may find a use for the gold leafing any way.....

Hi to everyone, I hope all of you had a delightful weekend!  :-*

About sending early, I think it's OK to send early but you have to consider if your partner agree with that.

Last night I was working on  Chelseaxbaby (Hi, there!) necklace and suddenly had some difficulties  ??? to attach one piece to the necklace, my boyfriend promised to help me with this. He also told me that the necklace looks pretty so he doesn't want that I add more pieces and charms  ::) I don't know! It's so difficult to stop now!

If you have any PM questions and you need an answer feel free to contact angeleyes410 or a Mod for help.

I am so excited to read how everyone is going with there necklaces or braclets.  I can't wait to see the gallery!

Don't worry about it, I think my boyfriend is going to hate what I make too :P I have one fairly conservative one already, and he thinks it's too busy! He doesn't like the asymmetrical look, for some reason.

But hey! Congrats on sending early!

Well, color me frustrated. I walked to the post office in the snow, only to find that they've changed their hours and now close at 11 on Saturdays rather than 12! The really annoying thing is that I was ready to go at 11, I just hung out and drank tea because I thought I had an hour to get there. >__< So I'll be shipping out on Monday.

Well iwas in FL for 9 days (soo much nicer than MI) but the downside was I had no internet access and didn't know we'd be gone that long!! At any rate since my partner sent I expect to find a nice package waiting for me at home!! (My BIL was getting mail taking care of the house etc.)

:-D

I'm getting antsy waiting to see the photos of my necklace being posted.  My partner was out of town for a week and sick before that, but I can't wait!

i know!  :D i loved creating my piece for my partner, and what i received was f*cking sweet and i will treasure it forever! And the extra piercing bits i got.. sooo cool! It was so much fun and its great to have a piece of jewellery at the end of the swap to keep forever, having been made by some one else with all the things you like in mind.  :)

I started a thread in the "ideas for new swaps" category just to see if anyone else is interested in doing another round.
