Are these earrings overpriced? - EDIT 1/21: Adjusted prices & added necklaces! (TONS of pics)

My daughter went through hell with bullying last year. She became depressed, and it actually got so bad that she had to change schools. She felt as if there were no resources out there for kids like her, so she is making jewelry and donating a % of what she makes to an anti-bullying organization. She's put a lot of work into making everything, so I just wanted to get opinions before filling her Etsy shop.

She has them priced at $4.25 right now. 

I adjusted the prices to $6.25 for earrings, $4.25 for key chains, and $7.50-$8.25 for necklaces. 

I hope that isn't too high. Also Nell designed a special set of earrings for the stop bullying section and we will be donating $2.00 from each sale to anti-bullying organizations. If you know of a good one please PM me!

1/21 --I also updated her shop to reflect that $1.00 from the sale of each piece of jewelry will be donated, instead of just select jewelry.

Bracelets:

2/16 I have received a few PM's asking for an update. Prices have gone UP and we have been able to donate over $200 to anti-bullying campaigns! We are trying hard to keep up with all the orders but run out of stock a lot.

Those are cute. I think for the cause and for being hand crafted they're not at all over priced.

No, I'd pay more than that bc they're cute and going to a good cause.

You could probably ask a little more, definitely not overpriced.

 I agree with this reply.

Personally I think they are way UNDER priced! They are so cute!! I suggest making them like $7 and two pair for $10. People will pay more especially if donating a % to antibullying!

They are just regular fishook earrings but in the description of the items it says if the customer wants more expensive silver or goldwe can make a separate listing for them.

Not overpriced. You and her should look up some tutorials on how to make them. It would be fun and memorable!

I'm actually creating a tutorial for my blog this week. :) These are images I took of the jewelry she made.
