I have to admit that I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to old “junk” jewelry. I love vintage pieces and especially unusual brooches, rings or pendants. I have collected a huge box of it and I wondered if anyone else out there would be interested in sharing their stash!!

So here’s the idea for the swap: You will get a small flat rate box from the post office, (I believe it is $7.20 to ship regardless of weight) and fill it to the top with junk jewelry. By junk jewelry I mean jewelry that is either broken or in great condition and just not your style. Mainly I’m talking about pieces that can be used for another project. Some examples are:

  • single earrings(or pairs)
  • broken chains
  • loose beads
  • necklaces
  • brooches
  • rings
  • watches (with or without the band)
  • pocket watches
  • bracelets
  • rhinestones
  • charms and pendants
  • strands of beads or pearls
  • keychains (I’m putting this on the list because I have found many cute keychains in junk jewelry boxes!)

Any other pieces you may have that would fit this description will be okay to include.

I know old jewelry is sometimes tarnished but please do not send things that are dirty, or broken beyond use. Also please do not include things that don’t fit the general theme of this swap.

Please fill the box well. Don’t just throw in 5-6 pieces, fill it up with a good variety of things. Send something you would be excited to receive. I purchase large boxes of junk jewelry from eBay and the fun is digging through the box to see what you are gonna find!

Don’t forget to include a note with your name and the swap name!

You must have a minimum rating of 4.95 and you must have completed at least 30 type 3 swaps to join this swap. I will check profiles carefully! I will try to angel if necessary however since this is a rather large swap I can only do so much so please don’t flake on your partner!!!
