My  mom just started making her own beads and then making jewerly.  I think they great. I want to know what you guys think and if you think it is good enough to sale and how much.  All of the beads (except the silver ones) are handmade.


She calls the last one "Strings of my Heart"


Thanks for looking and giving me input.

I think they look great. Love the strings of my heart one. My suggestion on prices...go to local craft fairs and talk to the ladies who make jewelry and look at what they charge. Another way to figure out what to charge is to figure out the cost of materials for each one and then add 1-5 dollars to it for profit (don't forget to figure in the gas if you go to craft fairs to sell).

They look good-really like the beads in pic #2

Basic gist for price is take cost of supplies X 3 (atleast) and since they are hand made beads-figure in the cost for labor (though I wouldn't go excessive-you'll sell more with a fair price then an over inflated price)

They are gorgeous! I'd like to order that heart shaped one depending on what price you work out for it haha. I'd say to make them cost at least twice as much as what she pays for materials.
