It's absolutely gorgeous. I don't have the faintest idea about the price, but it looks very proffesional and beautiful; I'd say expensive.

Your purse is beautiful!  I love any material that is 100% wool! Price wise: at least $40.  But depending on how long it took to sew on all the beads etc.  you could charge more.

I would charge for the materials, and pay yourself at least $5 per hour you spent on it.  It's a really nice bag, i would pay, at the very least for it, $25 but you can afford to go up from there because it looks really nice.

I think some crafters sell themselves short.  Quality (and confidence in your work) counts for a lot.  If the craftstmanship is good (meaning, good sewing skills), and it appears to be, I wouldn't charge any less than $55.  Its a unique piece, with quality materials, and is artistic - also hand-beaded.  Do you have a shop?  If you do, and your other pieces are a lot less expensive, you'll have a harder time selling it for this price.  BUT, if you have confidence in your talent, and can stand behind your work, and if all of your pieces are this good, then I say you should put a true "art/boutique" price on it.

Sorry for rambling...
