The following info is for those of you who are attending for the first time this year or if you just need a reminder about how the charm swap works

Here are the things to know:

  • When you register on the morning of Jan 18th, please give your one charm ( in an unnamed or unlabeled box) to an attendant at the registration table. Dont forget having a business card inside your package is a good idea!
  • Saturday evening the charm swap will start. Along with the exhibition reception for “Off the Wall = Structural Adornment”, and of course our famous T-shirt booth will be open as well!!
  • During the evening the person at the charm swap desk will call up everyone in groups to pull the box with the corresponding number on your name tag. NO PEEKING!!   After you pick your charm we highly suggest you try to find the person who made your charm. Hooray for making metal head friends!

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email us @

Happy Making!
