Want to barter?






Since my in laws have been here and it's been harder for me to scrap book I have been making more jewelry as a creative out let. I have been trying out new techniques and having a lot of fun creating new pieces. I Have been branching out to making necklaces, I am currently trying to get the hang of using chains instead of just wire and beads..

I was at the store the other day and this wonderful women was commenting on my jewelry and when I told her I made the pieces I was wearing she said ohh what a fun talent to be able to Barter with. She then explained how her and a group of her friends Barter with each other for things the want or need. For instance Judy makes great bead and Grace makes amazing cards. well Judy isn't great at making Cards and Grace does not have time to make bread so they swap talents. Judy makes bread for grace and Grace makes cards for Judy.

So are you fallowing a long with me so far? So any ways I thought it would be fun to swap talents with some of my friends.

If anyone is interested in Bartering with Me just let me know.. The talent I am putting out there to barter with is my Jewelry making skills I will make you a piece of jewellery in trade for one of your talents.. If you are local I will bring it over too you and if you are long distance I will send it out... Don't any of you respond by saying you don't have any talents Because that would be a big lie.. A talent could be any thing... You could be excellent at buying scrapbook papers or a wonderful quote collection a great card maker A great recipe collector.. Etc...





So who is Game?? Can't wait to see who wants to Barter...
I guess I should have stated that these are my personal pieces of jewelery I put these up as examples of my work just tell me
What style you like and what color you would like it in and I will do my best to cater to you needs. Also if you send me a pic of something you want I can try to recreate it...

Jennifer - of course I'm up for a barter. However, you'll have to let me know what you want from me. I'm not so sure what talents I hold (I know I wasn't supposed to say that)...and I want to be fair. You have such a great talent - and your jewelry is so beautiful.

Ter said...

What a neat idea. I don't wear alot of jewelry, so I won't barter for those, but definately if you decide to barter something else or you want something from me, we can come up with a deal I'm sure! ;)

I could make you a mini of your choice of theme...I don't know if that would be a fair barter or not. You would have to let me know. :)

Jen,
yarns, like egyptian cotton,
I was thinking about starting to crochet again! I love to use designer yarns like egyptian cotton, angora and silks.

Also, I love to collect scrap papers from the local paperies - mostly asian silk ones and tons of others that I don't know the names of. I use them for card making!

Let me get some stuff together - I am a BIG sucker for jewelry. My mom is a jeweler also... maybe we could trade some pieces of that too!

Sandy said...

Hi, Jen. I love your idea... I am more of a fan of "sublte bling" than the flashy stuff, but I am so excited to work with ya. Hmm... What can we swap? I'd love one of the Mother's bracelets you make. Or maybe something simple that me and my girls can wear to match each other?

Do you want any more vinyl, or are you all vinyl'd out?

Ter said...

jen, I'd love to see your PAIL bracelets. I don't know what I could do in exchange though...

Jen Sue Wild said...
