So, Inna gave me the marvelous idea of the CD necklace here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8959.0
Now my dilemma is that I've worn it for only two days and strangers, friends, and family alike fall in love with it and want one, too. I don't mind giving them away to family and good friends, but complete strangers...no way. If possible, I'd like to sell them when people ask for one, but for how much?
One friend says $20, another says $25, and my stepmom says $18 and not to get too greedy. It costs me $3 to attach a bale and the necklace (cheap) and the scrap CD. But it also costs me an hour+ of my time. So what do you guys think? Should I sell it for cost plus my time or make a bit of a profit? I'd also like to raise a little money for my church since we're trying to rebuild an entire apartment building for televised services and low-income living for families in need. I could package it in a little box and a tie a ribbon with a business card on it... you know, all pro like... ha.
Anyway, okay, any comments and ideas are appreciated!
Oh, and my scanner just crapped out on me so I'm currently uinstalling it and reinstalling it and when that is all said and done, I'll have a much better (3rd) pic to post. So, for now, there are only two:
This is how it hangs...
