I am pretty talented working on computing environments, from Networks down to your P.C. I'm very interested in trading my skills for jewelry making. Anyone game?

Comment by Two Birds on December 23, 2011 at 2:24am

Hey everyone


I have LITERALLY enough beads, seed beads, stones, cabachons, etc to open a bead store. (Used to have one). I am in no shape to run one anymore so it has been stored for a couple of years now.


Anyone have some land they'd like to trade for all of it?

Comment by Mary White on July 11, 2011 at 6:51pm

Hi, I am new to this, but I have lots of handmade goodies.. anything on my etsy shop I would be willing to trade for free...  I also have tons of wood beads and feathers for hair!

Comment by Two Birds on June 28, 2011 at 4:16pm
Any beaders looking to trade? I have EVERY size sead bead and all the assorted stuff that goes with em, love to barter/ trade so gimme a shout.
Comment by Gnossos on January 11, 2011 at 6:39pm
This is so awesome that pages like this exist. I always miss Trade Circle throughout the year while waiting for the next (nearby) Rainbow!
Comment by samadhiૐstarr on January 8, 2011 at 8:10pm
Hi Rahbin, those definitely look like some kind of carnelian or red agate stones there - the reddish/orange ones, that is. i make jewelry with those all the time and they're great. the black and white could be a dalmation agate - those are even more rare and very unique looking stones. the brownish ones not sure, would have to take a closer look. anyway, you could make some nice pendants from those or even just keep them in your pocket as good luck charms/karma amulets from your dad! :)
Comment by Amber Waves on January 5, 2011 at 6:55pm
I like those bottle cap pendants, arent those magnetic? i dont have a camera but when i get my hands on one ill take pictures of all the shit i want to trade. hemp stuff, scarves, hats, or ill just see you all at nationals ya traders! Love you!!!
Comment by Rahbin on November 13, 2010 at 12:32pm
I tried to find a group for there one? I have these stones and I'm not EXACTLY

sure what they are-can anyone help me id them?
Comment by Rahbin on November 13, 2010 at 11:23am
BTW wow there are some great creative people in here!
Comment by Rahbin on November 13, 2010 at 11:21am
I think money and credit should be abolished and the whole world should rely on trading/bartering..

and I have a BUNCH of polished agates my dad gave me, who wants some?
