Is there still interest in a birth bead swap? I would like to start sign ups shortly so we all have plenty on time to get the beads out. There are a few different ways we can do shipping and I will to do what is the majority.

Here is a little more about it

I never heard of this but sounds pretty exciting. I'd love to be a part of it too. Not idea what bead I'd pick or why but I'm excited to go and look. LOL

I'm thinking of starting the sign up here soon. Leave the sign up for 2 weeks, then allow about 3/4 weeks to get the beads to me. Then I will package them up and send them out to you ladies. I'd like to do this early because I want people to feel supported durin the end of pregnancy when it's difficult to get comfortable and a reminder that you are never alone.

So to clarify....we would each send our beads to you? And then you would then be the one to send everyone elses beads out to us all....so technically you would be the only one with our home addresses? That would be very awesome.

Yes! I would probably send out a few a week. So they trickle in to everyone.

I think it sounds great! Where can you buy them? I haven't heard of them before, but I think it sounds like a good idea!

Are they just regular beads or is there a special kind? Haha.

Joannes and Sierras and Michaels all sell beads. And there are several small private stores out there also.
Dawn...yes you could make a bracelet...or even just a strand...and it theres enough maybe a necklace. Beading is super easy. You can make it as fancy or as simple as you want...you could string them on some fishing line and tie it off....or even get special bracelet stretchy line to use and clasps and make it fancy.

Cool! I already have mine picked out. Are we going to know which beads came from who and what they represent? Never done this before.


ETA: Another question I have is do they all need to be the exact same bead? I have a few of about 5 or 6 different types.

I love the idea, but it would just be another "thing" I have in the house that I never do anything with.
