View Full Version : What's it worth??

OK, I know there are a lot of shoppers on the Dis....so where better to ask this question..

I do machine embroidery, make clothes, handbags and my latest craze is beading. I'm thinking that maybe I could turn it into a business one day. So just to get an idea, how much would you be willing to pay for this bracelet?


The colours don't come out too well, they're a lot more subtle than in the photo.

I've seen bracelets similar to yours selling on eBay for as much as 15.

Thats very pretty :)

Yes I think 15 is good.

I'd agree, 15 very reasonable.

Glad you like it...

It's lovely.

I am also interested in setting my own business one day, and have a huge interest and love of beads and jewellery making.

The main problem for me, was that after I had deducted the cost of the beads and my time to make the items, it almost didn't seem worth doing it.

Not wanting to sound negative, but I think you need to think about how much it will cost and the time it will take you, and then what do you want to earn per item or per hour, and work out if it's feasible.

I wish you every success though.
The bracelet is very detailed and beautiful.
Well done! :cheer2:

It's beautiful, it must have taken you a long time to make :)

Thanks ladies, but as Tink78 points out, these things take quite some time to make, this one is about 6 hours of work, so 15 pounds is definitely under the price I was looking for...

I think I'll stick to making this type for presents!
