swap - please join us!

so. last year at silver bella my sister, karla, was in the most awesome swap.

"vintage bling"

now seriously, doesn't that just make your heart go pitter patter?
here's the information, totally copied straight from her blog. leave a comment here or there and you are in.

trust me girlies, this is one you really want to go for.

You will need to scoop up:

*25 pieces of silver looking vintage rhinestone pieces. They do not have to be perfect. It's okay to have some of the stones missing. All shapes and sizes!

*Remove any backs of earrings, pins, other things that need to go so the bail fits nicely.

*The pieces need to be at least 1 inch in size and no larger than 2 inches.

*Glue (E6000 works great) or solder (if you are comfortable with soldering) a jewelry bail on the back of the piece. Hobby Lobby sells glue on jewelry bails that work awesome. A bail is a piece that has a loop on it so you can add a jump ring to the charm.

*Send your pieces and a chain, your desired length, to Lynn and I by June 1. This gives everyone a chance to be on the hunt for the bling! We will assemble your necklaces and hopefully have them out by mid-June. NOTE: The necklace chain length is your preference but be sure to have a length that is long enough for 25 charms.

hope you'll join us!
