So far being on Swap Bot I haven't seen a swap like this....so if its been done before, please excuse me :)

I am sure there are many beaders out there or those who use beads for their projects. This is a chance to get some new and interesting ones that you've never seen before or are not available where you live.

Where this is the Starting of a New Year, I thought it would be a good time to start this swap.


  • Beads are to be sent in a 2 x 3 in Baggie. (Found in the beading/hobbie Isle of most Stores as well as the Pharmacy Isle)

  • Beads MUST be Glass / Gemstones / Metal / Shell / Bone (No Plastic & Wood is allowed as long as they are of quality)

  • Be sure to fill the Bag FULL, not just a few beads.

  • You Can MIX the Types of beads in one Baggie. This is Strongly Encouraged. Try to do more than just "Seed Beads" in a bag.

  • Be Sure to Add a note with swap name and username

  • This Swap is SENDERS CHOICE.


  • Must have a 4.9 Rating

  • You should have been rated for at least 5 or more type 3 swaps to join

  • If you want to send more than what is required, feel free. Yes the extra's can be something OTHER than what the swap theme is...but your MAIN Bag HAS to follow the theme.

  • I'll angel after you rate your partner a 1 (Be sure to message me once you've done this)

  • Be sure that your partner gets a 5 if the swap meets all swap requirements, even if you don't like it. This is senders choice, so it would be unfair otherwise.

The first swaps I ever did were on AOL and they were bead swaps! I make jewelry and this is a terrific way to get bead you never see otherwise! I'm in!! I did those for years while AOL had their own message boards.

What about wood beads??

Wood Beads are fine as long as they are quality ones
