Okay. Ravensdale is over and I'm ready to host a new swap. The swap
is the Black & Gold bead swap.
The guidelines as they stand today. Maybe to be refined later....
15 participants. If large response, maybe multiple swaps.
Each participant makes sets of TWO beads for each participant.
FIRST person to respond and request it, gets to make ONE pendant for
each participant. Also black and gold only. No specific size
requirement... use your good judgment. If not the first respondent,
then beads are to be made.
Only Gold and Black Premo/CFC Clay visible in bead. (I.e., you can
place the clay over s***clay, but only Gold & black on the surface.)
Any shape okay, but should be the equivalent of starting with a 10-12
mm ball before shaping. Round, oval, bicone, etc. from that size.
If interested, respond by e-mail and be sure to use the header "Black
& Gold Swap", so I can track accordingly. I get a LOT of e-mail and
don't want to lose you.
Deadline to be determined. Probably end of October-ish.
Put each swap in a small zip lock bag (jewelry style) along with your
name and where you are from. You can also include other info,
like a description of your technique, brief personal bio, mailing
address, etc. Place your items, with sufficient packing material for
protection and re-shipping, into a STURDY! UNSEALED box with your
label and postage (if you've provided a stamp) and place that box into
another box or envelope to be mailed to me. (I'll provide address
later.) (The US Post office has nice priority mail boxes that can
then fit into the priority envelopes for mailing to me.
Be sure to provide me with a return label and either a Priority Mail
stamp, or three dollars to purchase one. It's easier for me if you
pre-buy the postage and send it along. If you in Hawaii, Alaska or
out of the country, I may need more postage.
That's about it for now.
Looking forward to hearing from swappers!
