Could you post pictures of the Sterling Silver stuff you have that you want to trade? I might have some of the things you want.

Here's a closer look at what I have. All the chains except for photo (2) are finished. Photo 1 is gold-filled, not sterling. EDIT: Please note that the items marked X have been traded and thus unavailable. Yay for bartering!

I would be interested in the cabochons, do you have pictures?

I have tons of base metal (mostly brass, some gunmetal)

Seed beads in lots of colors (some are mixes)

I can pillage through my bookcase as well...what kind of bead books are you looking for?

pearman--absolutely! Mill Hill has some great looking seed beads.

Christina--what brand are your seed beads? Here's a list of beading books I'm interested in: http://pinterest.com/jtiemz/nonfiction-books-worth-reading/

Oh my goodness!

I want all of those cabs...

I have vintage czech and japanese seed beads as well as some modern japanese seed bead mixes (from Fusion Beads in Seattle) and some assorted tubes of modern czech glass seed beads from Beyond Beadery in Spokane (now closed.)

I also have vintage silver and gold plated filigrees, vintage chain in assorted metals, gunmetal chain, and antique brass chain and findings.

I would part with my beloved bead embroidery book as well. (Sensational Bead Embroidery)

I see you have a steampunk book on your list...I have a little package of watch parts I would part with too...

I can take pictures of everything this weekend and email them to you if you like.

Um...

Wow.

I would love the shimmerstones too! In fact, the very first thing I ever bead embroidered was one of your shimmerstones!

I would pass on the clear cabs though...I have TONS of those already.

I will try to get pictures to you this week...I ended up going out of town last weekend and got nothing beady done :(

I also have to dig through my book case, I think I have a few more books that were on your list.

brightcircle,

 

I apologize for taking so long to get back with you.  I had one sick little one after the next, and just not have a moment to sit down.  Would you prefer me to send pics or would you rather have the color numbers?

No prob, pearman and Christina. I prefer pics to product numbers. Both are great but not necessary.

Sorry it's taken me awhile to respond back...it's just been crazy here.

Anyway,

I received the package of cabs! They are perfect for my embroidery, thank you so much!

I hope you got the book, seeds, and foundation and are enjoying them :)
