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.

Nope, not heavy at all, it's a polymer clay that she can roll out to desired thickness and punch, mix colors, layer designs on top. Then bake according to directions (don't over cook!) and it will be hard when cooled. There are a lot of books out there that can give her the basic info and ideas.  It's a lot of fun to play with and you can do a lot of stuff with it.

Wow those are neat! Is the clay stuff heavy if worn as earrings, you think?

Are those guitar picks that she painted??? CUTE! I would pay like $6 for them. 

They're actually guitar picks punched out of old gift cards. :)
