This swap is for handmade earrings. They must be handmade, not bought at the store. (Of course, you can buy the materials at the store ;-) ) You can make them any way you want, so long as you read the rest of the description below:

There are two partners in this swap, and you can make as many pairs as you want, as long as you send AT LEAST ONE PER PARTNER.

Make sure to comment if you have any particular taste in color, size, etc. Also, if you want clip-ons instead of pierced, mention that. And I ask that EVERYONE, PLEASE check the comments page before sending on the earrings, so that we are all happy. :-D

New swapppers are allowed. Please do not join if you have more than two no-sends, however. I do not think it is fair for others to work so hard on their projects only to recieve nothing in return.

Finally, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

And have fun! Isn\'t that the point?

I\'d like to mention that I really love earrings, but I don\'t have pierced ears, so I\'d appreciate it if all earrings that came my way had clips instead of studs/hooks! =D

harleychick27 02/21/2007 #


I don\'t make clip on earrings so will drop from this swap as I\'d hate to have your name and not be able to accomodate you. :O)

raydance 02/22/2007 #

Ack! Don\'t drop just because of me! :( I don\'t mind receiving hooks either, I could change them to clipbacks myself!

Please join? ;___; So sorry.

I love earring swaps. I just hosted a swap of the same name that has closed. I love to make earrings and when I join or host a swap my wife gets the earrings. Gary

narcolepticgirl 02/23/2007 #

Hi!! I want to participate in this swap! Can I? It´s a person who have rate me so bad, but i sent her item...I hope she will change it when receive her gift!

Pink 02/23/2007 #

How do you make clip on earrings?! :-S

lizjane86 02/25/2007 #

You can just buy the clip-on backs at most craft stores, and put those on instead of the hooks. It is not any harder :-D

user6615 02/27/2007 #

I'm new and I love making and receiving earrings! Can't wait to get started! Contact me if you have a color preference! :D

lizjane86 02/28/2007 #

If you are willing to make clip-on earrings, and/or want to receive them, please message me! Thanks all!

hopeevey 03/ 3/2007 #

Hi :)

I don't care if I get clip-ons or pierced-ear earrings. The fact is, I only have one ear pierced. For that matter I'd be perfectly happy if my partner sent me un-matched earrings, as I don't generally wear them in pairs, anyway.

wonder2 03/ 5/2007 #

Hi~ Looking forward to this!I like fairly simple,low-key earrings.Not too dangly or 'glitzy'&love dragonflies,silver,turquoise,old buttons&neat beads. My ears are pierced.

craftersbag 03/ 8/2007 #

I love to make earrings. I love characters,animals,fruit anything funky. I prefer silver and I have pierced ears.

niecedenise 03/ 9/2007 #

Ive gotten beautiful earrings in past a past swap. Cant wait to get more. My only preferences are pierced and silver. thanks

gooddog56 03/10/2007 #

I like all colors, any size earring is fine. I have pierced ears and prefer the fishhook style earwire to posts. I'm glad the swap is about to start!

niecedenise 03/11/2007 #

Lizzyjane, were ready for our partners.

snarglebean 03/11/2007 #

Hi there, in case my partners are looking for ideas, I also prefer silver and fish hook, kidney wire, or leverback earrings instead of posts. I like fish, cats, and pretty much any color will do. :)

zanylady 03/11/2007 #

Hi all....glad to get my partners so I have some direction to go in.

As for me....I love earrings!!! I have pierced ears....love dangling ones and often make a pair that corrinate but don't match...more fun!

Usually wear silver but sometimes gold and do like copper!

This is fun....


user6841 03/11/2007 #

Neither one of my partners posted their preference here, so, I've made something that I think is pretty and they're going in the mail tomorrow. I hope you like them!

snarglebean 03/12/2007 #

Hope Evey and suzie64, your earrings are being picked up by my friendly neighborhood postal carrier tomorrow morning. Enjoy!! :) Kelli

Beautiful earrings! I was planning to wear my favorite blue jumper dress to work tomorrow, and the flower earrings you sent will go with it perfectly! The red and silver ones are very elegant looking! Thank you!

lizjane86 03/20/2007 #

niecedenise 03/30/2007 #

Ive not gotten any yet. Boo-hoo

harleychick27 03/30/2007 #

I haven't rec'd anything yet, either, but 17 people have yet to send. Hang in there, I'm sure we will! :O)

niecedenise 03/30/2007 #

raydance, have you gotten my package with the earrings and bracelet yet? sent them ages ago. Just wanted to check in with you.

raydance 03/31/2007 #

NieceDenise - not yet! Don't worry, airmail can take up to 14 business days to reach me from the States, so I'd give it some time. Thanks for checking in with me though! =D Will let you know when I receive them.

niecedenise 03/31/2007 #

its been longer than that. Did you get the other package from me? if youve not gotten it by4-2 i will happily send another. Denise

raydance 03/31/2007 #

pauses Other package? goes to message you instead

user6615 04/ 1/2007 #

user6615 04/ 1/2007 #

How do I find out who sent to me? I wanna send a "THANKYOU" out to them! :)

wonder2 04/ 2/2007 #

Ok~first MANY thanks to Marlene!!!I received your super earrings today&love them! second~my earrings to craftersbag&shopinc will be in the mail tomorrow(SO sorry about the delay!have suddenly had a lot going on here) Terri

harleychick27 04/ 3/2007 #

YIKES!! Yesterday was the 'send by' date and TWELVE people are still marked 'not sent'!!! Wow! Now I am worried that I won't receive any earrings! Jobeg and PeaceWitch did you receive the earrings I sent you?

niecedenise 04/ 3/2007 #

that 24 pairs . I heard from one of my swaps, shes running late. But I'm so glad she contacted me. The other i dont know about. Hope i hear something.

harleychick27 04/ 3/2007 #

I have not heard from either of my partners. Please, if you have my name please let me know what's up. I always post when I've sent and to whom I've sent and I LOVE it when I know my swaps are on the way. I guess some people want it to be a surprise but I'd rather have the peace of mind of knowing it's en route than have the 'surprise' be that I'm not getting anything! :O) Just my two cents.

zanylady 04/ 3/2007 #

Sandra.....thank you for the sweet earrings....you did a beatiful job. I am assuming they are crocheted but maybe tatting???

Thanks so much!


niecedenise 04/ 3/2007 #

I goofed. It was for another swap. So i havent heard from anyone either. Perhaps Kiki abd I will have to get together.

harleychick27 04/ 4/2007 #

Well, we're down to eight no sends, that's progress! Keep your fingers crossed Denise! :O)

niecedenise 04/ 4/2007 #

I hope so. I really dont want to be a double no-send.

wonder2 04/ 4/2007 #

Alright~finally!Earrings sent to Ling&Melissa~ yay! Terri ~VERY sorry for the delay.

harleychick27 04/ 5/2007 #

Only five to go, Denise!! Well, the person with the 1 isn't going to send, I'm sure, but I bet the others will! I'm still thinking positively! :O)

niecedenise 04/ 5/2007 #

Maybe_ We can still hope that they will fulfill their obligations.

sarachattom 04/ 5/2007 #

Babbling Panda and Lizzy Jane,

Your earrings went out today - sorry for the delay. Stomach flu sucks!

Sara Chattom

niecedenise 04/ 6/2007 #

Raydance, i will presume that you didnt get your earrings yet. There will be a new set in the mail on Monday. If the others show up you will just have more. Denise

harleychick27 04/ 7/2007 #

Guess what?? I rec'd not one but two pretty pairs of earrings from Lizzy Jane today!! YAY, thank you so much for BOTH pairs!! :O)

raydance 04/ 7/2007 #

Thank you very much, Denise. =)

lizjane86 04/ 8/2007 #

Yay! I'm glad they got there fast! I'm also glad you enjoy them :-P

niecedenise 04/ 8/2007 #

Kiki, good for you. enjoy them!

harleychick27 04/ 8/2007 #

Still nothing for you, Denise?

Lunaria 04/ 8/2007 #

I haven't received from anybody yet either.

niecedenise 04/ 8/2007 #

Nope. Jessie we can always hope. Thanks for asking ,Kiki.

wonder2 04/ 9/2007 #

well,now I guess I know not to join swaps where some people have a rating of "1"~

harleychick27 04/ 9/2007 #

Okay, moment of truth, Denise! Are your partners marked 'sent' (a lot of people sent late in this one)? Did you have the person with the one (her profile is now deleted, btw)? My other partner is Babblingpanda and is marked 'sent' so I guess I'll email her to see when she mailed them... :O)

niecedenise 04/ 9/2007 #

Both of mine say sent but i think they have for a while. Hopefully Ill hear from them soon. Neither of mine is the same as yours. Lucky you tohave the deleted one. Bessie, how about yours? Any news from anyone?

harleychick27 04/ 9/2007 #

Oh, I don't have the deleted one, I had Lizzy Jane and I rec'd hers Sat and Babblingpanda is the other, yay! Hopefully, we'll be all set, yay! :O)

wonder2 04/ 9/2007 #

I had the 'deleted one'~pretty good name for her,too!

raydance 04/ 9/2007 #

Wondering if my packages have gotten there yet? Cutecake and KayB? =)

niecedenise 04/10/2007 #

HopeEvey, I got your earrings today. They mustve come by way of the moon. I really like them and thank you for two pairs. Thankyou Denise

harleychick27 04/10/2007 #

Yay, Denise, you rec'd some, enjoy!! I rec'd THREE pairs from Babblingpanda today. They are studs, which is cool, I've never thought of making studs. A pair of pink bunnies, green buttons (she definitely read my profile) and blue cameos. She put each pair on small playing card, you know, like when you purchase studs they're mounted on 'cards'. Too cool!! Love them!! :O)

SaReMa 04/11/2007 #

Hi! :o( I didn't receive any earrings...one of the senders did not send, and another is marked ans sent...but there has been a while since that, and nothing has arrived. One of my partners - Marlene - has received, but the other - Aloha - I don't know...but this one is a "no-send"...so perhaps has received and is one of those swapers that are just receivers and not senders...but anyway, I'm glad that at least one of my partners was happy! Thanks! Sandra

niecedenise 04/14/2007 #

susie64, nothing yet. Tour bus must be lost.

SaReMa 04/16/2007 #

Hi! I received my earrings today, from JoyCFrog! I loved them!!!

...even if I don't get the others, I'm happy, because Joy sent me 2 pairs of earrings!

Thanks a bunch! Sandra
