Up for trade:
I am in desperate need of sterling silver, gunmetal, and brass findings...wire, earwires, chain, clasps, headpins, crimps, crimp covers, connectors...
I want (but don't need lol) steampunk stuff..watch gears, monocle lenses, old watches (with crystal and back intact) key charms, leather/suede cord...etc.
I am also willing to negotiate.

I am interested in the 41 fav magazine. I have quite a few sterling pieces and I think maybe 2 pocketwatches from my grandfather I might be willing to sacrifice. I'll have to see if I can find them. We are in the middle of a move since we sold our house and have yet to find something decent (who said housing market was soft, not in my area), so it might take me a few days maybe a week to get some pictures for you to see if you want to trade or I would be willing to pay for it upfront (paypal?).

I would much rather do a trade so take your time, I will set the magazine aside for you in the meantime. I know how much a pain moving can be.
I know this is months after you posted this, but, if you still have those Beadwork Magazines I would love to trade for them! I don't know if I really have much of the items you were looking for but I have some stuff
a few ss lobster claws, 1 ss rectangle w/scrollwork toggle clasp, a few ss 2" 24g eye pins and a few feet of HH 22g SS wire.
I have a few large, flower antique brass bead caps...maybe an inch long and the petals open and close...really pretty (I use them at the end of spiral ropes etc) and a few filligree style bronze bead caps maybe 12x6mm? and these also open up.
Really i just have lots of odds and ends. I do mostly beadweaving/seed bead stitching so I don't have a lot of jewelry supplies/findings or wire on hand and everything I do have is really tiny like my seed beads!
I do have hundreds of Czech glass bicones in various colors ranging from 3mm to 5mm (not firepolish) I also have 10 grams each of a few Miyuki long magatamas and fringe drops and over 400 Pearl AB magatamas (the regular drops).
I have several colors of SL and color lined size 8/0 Japanese seed beads and maybe 1/4 kilo of size 10/0 or 11/0 SL crystal Japanese seed beads.These seeds and Czech glass bicones were all passed on to me from other people and I just don't really use them much.
And I have some tiny (2.5 & 3mm) swarovski bicones in a few colors that I just don't really use.
If you, or anyone else, is interested in trading for any or all of this stuff just email me or ask more questions here. I have photos of a lot of this that I can send you in email but it would be crazy to post them all here!
I am mainly interested in a few issues of B&B magazine (6/05, 8/05, 2/07, 6/08, 8/08) and Beadwork Magazine from 2006 to 2010. I have a few issues in those years and I have 2011's but mainly I have earlier issues and would like to find some more that are not $12 to $20 each! I just can't afford what most people are charging for them!
Of course I am always willing to trade for good Japanese seed beads (all shapes and sizes...I love metallics/matte or shiny, bronzey colors especially) and delicas because I just never have enough!
Alright, this post is long enough...let me know if you have any questions! Or if you just aren't interested...haha!
I have already traded all of these magazines away.....sorry.
Thank you for responding Christina! I figured it had been so long since you posted this but there's always a chance!
Anyways, I do have that stuff for trade if anyone wants any of it or all of it and has anything they want to trade! I always prefer a trade over a sale...that way we can all get rid of what we can't use and maybe get some cool new stuff too!
But thanks again Christina!
