10/7/03Flower Cane Swap
Lynne Schwarzenberg
Considering all the recent flurry about Leigh's millenium garden class, I thought it incredibly appropriate to host a FLOWER CANE SWAP! Since you need to have a whole array of different kinds of flowers to successfully make this type of jewelry, a swap would be PERFECT. Groups of 5 - join as many groups as you like. For each group you join, you will send in 5 identical pieces of flower cane that is at least 1/2" diameter and 2" long. CANES MUST HAVE A BLEACHED TRANSLUCENT (CFC 06) BACKGROUND!!!!!!!!! Canes must be individually wrapped in wax paper or saran. Include $2 for return postage.

9/19/03Multi Media~*GLITZY*~ Bead & Pendant or Vessel Swap
Amber Dawn
Make 4 sets of *4 beads and 1 focal piece such as a vessel or pendant*(4 sets of 5 pcs total)
Must be Glitzy in some way even if just dotted and hinted with glitz. You can use glitters, beads, rhinestones, mica, foil, anything to get the beads sparkling. You can create a clay covered vial or vessel that you impress designs into and embellish. If you need some ideas, try designing a star shape, or a magic wand shape with stones and glitters or fiber threads wrapped around the clay. Or Think Art Deco, using cane designs in black and white and adding Swarovski rhinestones to make the beads dazzle. Make beads no smaller than 1/2 inch.
All sets submitted must have your name and email address to identify your entries in this swap. Please send these to me with $3.00 in either cash or postage stamps and a return shipping address pre printed label or print out that you cut down to size or even a neatly hand written one so I can use it for return shipping.

8/19/03Rubber Stamp Addicts Unite!
Linda Hess
I have become totally addicted to rubber stamping and clay since I was introduced to it at Shrinemont this year. I think it would be wonderful to see what others are doing with this medium. Guidelines are simple: create an ornament or magnet using rubber stamps and polymer clay. The size doesn't matter...be creative...be bold...think outside the box :-) For each group you would like to be in make 5 pieces. Because of the time of year (craft shows are coming) I will limit this swap to 20 people total- 4 groups of 5.

8/9/03Stick Swap
Stephanie Martin
A swap idea inspired by the AZ Polymer Clay Guild. Each stick is made of polymer clay, with various embellishments if desired, and when placed in a jar they make an interesting centerpiece or display. The original hostess had to cancel, so Iím taking her place. Looking at groups of 10 or so, although final group size will be determined by those who sign up.

5/25/03KID'S SWAP
Lynne Schwarzenberg
With mommy getting into a bunch of swaps lately, my 6 year old is getting jealous and she wants me to organize a KID'S SWAP! I think it's a great idea since a lot of us have kids, grandkids, nephews and nieces who like to play with clay and I think getting them into a swap would be GREAT! Here's the details: Open to kids up to age 12, anything goes...beads, jewelry,figurines, weird little objects, whatever. Try not to help the kids make the stuff...let it be their own creation no matter how rudimentary. Unlimited groups of 3 (send 3, get 3...send 6 get 6, max of 6).

4/3/03Hibiscus Bead swap
After a visit to Hawaii I felt that we have to have a Hibiscus bead swap. The flowers are just begging to be captured in polymer clay. The colors, the gradations, the leaf vain structure, and the grace say "put me into a cane please". So, if you feel the same than join this swap. I have put together somewhat strict instructions so that the beads eventually will be suitable to create a nice necklace. 2 beads each, 3/4'' diameter, 1/4'' thick, with a hole, black background. Click for inspiration.
