Hey~! ^^

I make jewelry pieces as a hobby, and I'm looking to sell these off to subsidize for the money I spent on materials. So if you could tell me what I can improve on, and how much you think I can sell it at (or how much would you buy it at), it'd be wonderful =) These pieces are all handmade. Please don't be too harsh, I'm relatively new at this sport =P

I can tell you that your earrings look a lot better than the ones I make. I'd say you should sell them for...2-4 dollars. It depends on the material actually...

Your earrings are nice! You can sell them for £3 to £5 easily in the craft fairs here in UK esp. the 5th & 7th ones! Can go higher if the parts are in solid sterling silver, not silver-plated!

ahhaha~ haven't been here for a while ^^;; I'm starting to try necklaces and stuff... but still waiting for materials to arrive... my materials are solid sterling silver (because I can't take silver plated, so why not just get it sterling, right?) so thanks annie~

alecsuforever - i get most of them online... and the rest of them in specialty stores... so it depends where you live! ^^;; I use websites like beadaholique and auntie's beads... because there's no order limit, and shipping is cheap (just google them up)

There are very nice. You should sale your earring on-line, a lot a western people like this kind of stuff. I saw a lot wearing in the summer and a paire of crystal earring may cost 10$+ Cnd. Imagine you could sale for a higher price if it's come with a necklace too? People spend a lot of time in the morning searching a necklace who go well with there earring, so with a kit, no more time to lose! It is only a suggestion!
Good luck!

Oh wow these are really pretty. ^O^
I'd pay at least $3 dollars for the first one, $2 for the second, $3 for the third, $3 for the fourth, $3.50 for the fifth, $3.50 for the sixth and $4 for the seventh. These are only the least amount I would buy them for. I'd go up to $5 for one if I really like it.

they are very cute. I like the first pair the best. You can probably sell them around $5-6 for a pair.

As for suggestions. You can try different lengths. Try different materials. The earrings don't have to be symmetrical, i.e each earring can be slightly different.

Good job!! have fun and sell lots!

They look really good!! Very professionally done! I think they should be worth 4-5 USD .
Start cheap to attract customers , then slowly increase the price. But always keep the pricing reasonable ya..

wow...so pretty. i especially like the first and last one. so elegant.

for starters...the price shouldn't be too high. perhaps...around $6-12 for labor since they are handmade. also...remember to charge for shipping. plus...maybe give some kind of deals like...cheaper shipping for multiple purchases. just my suggestion...hope that helped a bit.

the 1st, 2nd and 3rd one looks really noob lol but from the 4th on, wow. i especially like the 5th and the last one the best!

i think you should sell the 1st 3 for like 3-4buks each, and the last 4 for like 5-6buks each.

waah your stuff is so good!!!! 0_0 i wish i pierced ears ><!!1 i think...that you should sell them from like 3-7 dollars, because they look really complex and definitely materials would be expensive 0_0 i think best pirces that people are willing to buy from are 3-5 or maybe even 6 dollars...it depends...XD everyone likes cheap stuff, but your hard work is worth more than 2 dollars =)

Omg these earrings that you made look like the ones in the shops!
They look gorgeous, I luff the first one and the 5th one downwards the best ^_^
They look like they took you a lot of time!
It looks so professionally done but I think the 3rd one is a bit bland, maybe you could add a dark shade of pink bead to make a contrast ^^"

very nice! i like the third one the most. very unique! pricing very much depends on where you sell it, really...i work at a jewelry store--personally, if you are selling sterling, then i think they should be $5+

thanks guys! i didn't even know that people replied ^^;; thanks for your wonderful comments~ =)

@ people who want to buy their own stuff... i buy mine online because I can't find it cheap where I live... my new fav place is artbeads.com ... but if you buy bulk (and i mean in HIGH volumes) then you might want to use ringsnthings.

i'll post more stuff up if i get around to it... keke

Nice design, you should show more of your jewelries. I really like the last one, very creative, love the color mixing too, the green, yellow and pink color make it look springy, good to wear now in spring time.

The second last one is nice too. I like how you did the twisting of the bead around the chain.

The others are nice too, very simple.

they're really nice! i like them. You're really creative. I don't know how much you could sell it for, but I'd buy them. You coudl go to a selling livejournal or selling place. Other people sell DIY stuff, too, and you could compare prices. :)
