I hosted a swap similar to this in 2011 and it was very successful! Some of may favorite earrings came from that swap.

Please be aware that these are required to be VERY high quality. Be sure to read through everything below before signing up. By signing up you are confirming that you have read through and understand all the rules below.

Because I demand high quality in this swap and it is going to be labor intensive, I am not allowing newbies. You must have successfully participated in at least one swap here on two peas in order to participate.

The groups are set up by color. There are 4 spots per group. For each spot you sign up for you will make 4 pairs of identical earrings in the colors specified. (I will open more groups as needed) In each group one spot may be studs(but does not have to be) - so if you want to do studs, let me know when you sign up. Other than that one spot, the earrings MUST be dangle. Each set needs to be completely finished with hooks/posts and stoppers/backs. All findings need to be silver, including the post/hook. The only exception is the gold group, those MUST have gold findings.

No characters (IE holiday related, Sponge Bob, sports teams, novelty, logos, owls, pandas - basically anything with a face haha, etc) Non specific shapes are fine (IE: flowers, hearts, stars, etc) These are for adults to wear - so make sure they are not childish. No clay, No pony or plastic beads. No shrinky plastic. Make sure they are not too heavy or too big to be comfortably worn.

Please use only high quality beads or store bought charms. (Lamp work beads, Swarovski beads, glass beads, seabeads, store bought charms.) As I have stated these are to be high quality & classy, to the point that people will question if they are handmade or not...think boutique/etsy.

When ready to ship, please package each set individually. Label each set with your name, peaname and the group. Be sure to send enough $ to send your package back to you. I will only take return shipping in cash or through paypal.

As I stated above, I am not allowing newbies in this swap. Also if you are a flaker or late on any of your current swaps, do not bother to sign up. These are due in the mail by April 4th - this is plenty of time to complete this swap, so this date is FIRM! I will return to sender any package that is not in the mail by April 4th. I will not count it as "in the mail" until you post here on the thread the DC#.

PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF MY ADDRESS!! These are going to my mom (Rosy Cheeks) house!

For now, can I have spots in Pink, Brown and Black/Grey? Does the pink have to be a stud spot? I'm fine with doing a Brown stud but want to do something else for pink.

Thanks

gus-gus - Got you down! You do not have to do a stud. I have taken the stud spot off the pink group. If you don't want it in brown, you don't have to either. but for now I put you there.

Please sign me up for the brown category. I have never tried my hand at jewelry. Any tips for newbies? Where is the best place to buy post or hoops?

Updated to here.

Renee - I am so sorry to hear about your mom. (((Hugs))) to you! Youtube has some great video tutorials! Also, I get my findings from Hobby Lobby when they go 50% off, which they do every few weeks. We have a local bead shop that has the most amazing beads. But I have also got some cute beads on Etsy.

Jeanette - The brown group is full. If I have interest I will start a second group.

Hoping to get this all filled up up over the weekend

Rene, I'll send you some earring bases (for the life of me I can't think of what they are called right now, ugh). I bought a LARGE bag at HL the other day and will never use them all. Send me your address and how many you need.

Thanks Shiloh for the kind words. It's been a rough couple of weeks but each day gets a little better. Can you please sign me up for a purple spot also?

JCI for the week. Productive weekend. Made 12 pairs of potential earrings. Best case I have my final choices for the swap. Worse case I have 12 new pairs of earrings.

I have filled in the rest of the spots so we are technically closed, but if anyone wants my 2 or third spot in a group let me know. Otherwise I will give a set to my daughter and use the rest as gifts

Thank you Krazyscrapper for the checkin! Can't wait to see what you have made.

Everyone please check in for the week. Thank you!!

JCI and a question. Do the earrings have to be crystal? Can they be semi-precious stones? I'm not really liking the color of orange crystal that are available.

Dang, I wish I would have joined this swap! Let me know if you ever do another one. I think that it would be fun to do a swap for each month...something that would be appropriate for that month. Like for example for January something blue and silver. Feb..reds and pinks. etc etc
