Blue & Silver Foil Beads (the ones that Tinks liked)
My finished Necklace witht the Cool Britannia Beads & that Viking Knit By Gillian, How much should I price it at, I have no idea?
the other Blue and Silver Foil Beaded Necklace with Chain Maille, the chain on the right hand side of the pic is wonkie as i forgot to straighten it for this photo shoot!!!! blimey over and out.
And by the way, I'm really struggling to price my work....... advice welcome

Wow Debs they are just gorgeous, i just love the beautiful flower beads. As with pricing yikes always a hard one I know I under price my jewellery. the Flower beads I would happily pay £10 - £15 for a set of them, I don't know if that helps much.

All beauts Batty Smile
Dont know if this helps but the lampworkers who have been around longer always say minimum of £3 for a bead, these clearly took longer than the average bead with expensive inclusions etc. The leather ones for example, you would be underselling at any less than £15 - 18. I know sometimes we think we arent as worthy and knock the price down - Im just as guilty - but you arent going to be doing yourself any favours, and these beads arw of a high enough standard that people may actually wonder why they are so cheap. Hope thats more helpful than scary!

I agree with Lisa, unique designs like this are worth a lot.

Those blue & silver foil beads made me drool over my keyboard.

I'm with the others on this Debs. Those are very good quality beads love, and from what I can see on this monitor your jewellery has been finished to a very high standard too.
If theyre' sterling findings I reckon £15 - £20 for the leather chokers, and a huge amount for the blue foil necklace which I want VERY much. (Let me know if it doesn't sell) If its not sterling I still think £35 or more for it. The jubilee necklace....I LOVE what you've done with the ends of the knitting. Bloody brilliant. I know it's not sterling but it's got to be worth £35+. Those beads are incredible. They're unique. One of a kind. Designer. Irreplaceable. That's worth spending money on, think of it like that

Start high. If nothing sells but people look very interested then maybe near the end of the day you could consider a drop in price but I think the one's you have been given here are minimum anyway.

Pricing is the most difficult part I think, in my very limited experience I have found that there are people out there willing to pay for unique pieces with a good standard of finish - don't under estimate or sell yourself cheap - they are all lovely and good luck.

I also think you need to 'educate' your potential customers - they need to know how much work etc goes into each bead - information cards, inspiration thoughts behind a statement piece - people love a story ...........

Utterly delicious ... all of them. I haven't got a clue about pricing, but I wish you the very best and you certainly deserve to do well with them.
