Wow, this has a great crafting time. Love it. Will have to consider. Say I have old jewelry and stuff, what is the best way to attach old parts. I do have a chain necklace that would be great for adding the 'charms'. Do you just unbend present rings and reclose? I do have some small pliers somewhere.

If you can open and close the old parts then use those but if not look for the vintage looking rings/closures etc at Michaels to use. They have several new lines and in several difference finished. Such a good reason to go shopping hehe

Jump rings or wire wraps are usually used to attach charms/beads. There are tons of tutorials about jewelry making out there but it's really pretty simple.

Here's a basic jump-ring how to: http://www.jewelry-making.com/openingjumprings.html (http://www.jewelry-making.com/openingjumprings.html)

I have a question about this swap: Does everything have to be from something in the junk drawer or is adding accent beads allowed?


Title: Re: Junk Jewelry Necklace/Bracelet, Round 2 (SIGN UPS to 10/16/09, SEND BY 11/30/09)
Post by: lancmaltby on September 29, 2009 03:12:19 PM
adding accent beads or whatever you have in your drawers etc is fine. In the past swap a few added buttons , pens, fishing stuff - have fun with what   you have. It's about really taking what misc. pieces of jewelry you have and making something great and new for your partner. For me I have a lot of missing earring and necklaces that I don't wear anymore - then that is when you can create something totally new with what you have hiding in your Junk Jewelry drawer.

Have fun with it!!!!

Is it okay to use beads and stuff from other broken pieces, we can use more than just charms and pendants? I have a couple of bracelets that have popped and a couple of button earrings that have fallen apart that I have beads from.

Off course you can use more that just charms and pendants. Check out the gallery of the previous round https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291636.0 , there all kinds of beads used, buttons, plastic barbie shoes.... use anything that you have!

Hey everyone! I'd like to join this swap...the only thing is that my "junk" collection consists of necklaces and earrings made with resin pendants that use birth control pills as a design element.  (The don't scream "BIRTH CONTROL PILLS".  You wouldn't realize what they are unless you look closely...plus they make a great conversation piece!)  

Would anyone be interested in that?  I don't want to make a necklace or bracelet that would offend my partner!

I believe that there would be many people in this swap that would like them! I like quite traditional jewelry without pink plastic charms eg, but if these pills look like small pearls... I would defenitly want them!

And there are also participants with a more unconventional style than me, I think Chimerix could match you up fine. If I were you, I would send in my questionnaire!!!

I wish I could afford having an international partner, but money's going to be tight for the next three months :( I would LOVE to receive something from another country though, especially with all the different supplies they have that we can't find in the States.

A necklace is not that heavy, so shipping internationally should not be THAT crazy expensive. At least, it is not like ten times more expensive than sending nationally over here. So, check it out before you decide. And maybe you can be in a threewayswap if we have an uneven number?

Sounds good to me! I just looked up international first class postage (http://www.usps.com/prices/first-class-mail-international-prices.htm) on the USPS site and it's not too much different than shipping in the US, so I'd be up for it!

And since jewelry is something I'm used to making, I would definitely accept a third partner"^.^"

Great Dizzer - I changed your shipping option.

We have an even number, so it looks like we won't need a 3 split for this one.

Hopefully everyone will be patient.  I'll try to make pairs tonight and have lancmaltby check and make changes.  Hopefully we can get partners assigned tomorrow.

Aloha to all and let's get ready for some amazing jewelry making!

ROME?!? we dont even go to the movies anymore, see what 10 years of marriage will do.... ::)

I am together with him for 11 years, but these trips have been a bit scarse lately. But it inspired me to take him this spring or so. Traveling like this is fun, so we'll have to do a lot of travelling before we start having kids.... ;D

I am already back at home for a few hours. Soaking my feet in a foot bath.... Damn, Rome is killing for your feet. We walked so much..... so weird I was in Vatican city this morning and now I am home already... :)

I scored a nice pendant for you, hopefully it has survived my packing skills. It did gave me a more defined idea for a theme for the necklace.

Teaser time!



Just a quick shot of my "best junk" that I sorted through yesterday. (One of the err..perks? of being out with flu all week :) )

Just waiting for some findings I ordered then I will get crack-a-lackin.

I would love to see other people's stashes and how they organize it (or don't :P )

It is quite funny, I know how to pour silver and make my own molds for making rings and stuff, saw metal, set stones, even made my own base for setting, solder silver and gold.... but I never done any beading  ;D So I need to practice a lot before making my partners bracelet.

That's a good idea with the spray paint.  I am not using neon colors, but that sounds great to make the charms match for the chain I chose.

TGIF! I will be working on my project over the weekend and since I have Monday off it should be going out then!!! I will PM my partner and group coordinator with the info. I was given a bunch of misc stuff before this swap and had some other goodies I picked up previously so this should be an interesting weekend of crafting...

Hi all - this is a friendly reminder to PM both your partner and your coordinator with your DC# or other shipping info.

If in doubt, please include both myself and lancmaltby in your PM.

Aloha!

I sat down today and finally started putting everything I've collected together! I'm so excited to send to carrieme! My sister is soo upset she can't have it! :P

I'm going to try and send sometime before the holiday, but she lives in FL so it will ship fast I hope!

I am so excited maehem!  Cannot wait to see it!!

I hope to send yours by Wed. 

I am just finishing up the Secret Santa Swap and then I can focus all of my attention to your necklace  ;D  I have been sneaking away to work on it, but now it's crunch time for the other swap.  I think I am too easily distracted!

Looks like we have a flake  >:(

Since olive_juice has disappeared from this swap and one she was hosting, DizzerSpinninRound is going to go ahead and post photos of what she sent to olive_juice and I'll go looking for an angel.

Hey all, I'm here. This is so embarrassing, but I've got dizzer's necklace all layed out on the board back home (not assembled, but I know how it will go). I promise that I have no intention of flaking on you guys, and will send as soon as I'm allowed to go back home and get the necklace together. I'm so sorry, everyone!
