What I really want to know is how much you think these would sell for. (I hope that doesn't sound terrible!) I'm going to make some things for a shop, and I'm trying to get an idea of how to go about pricing things with out making it too high, but still being able to get out of it at least what I put into it.

Here's the first thing:

Miss-Matched earrings

And here's some more:

And these would also be miss-matched earring sets (I just haven't turned them into earrings yet):

All of the charms (ladybugs, flamingo, etc.) I made out of polymer clay.  I used sterling silver findings and Swarovski crystals,too.

I'm just not sure what would be a fair price.  I mean, I know about all the pricing formulas.  I just don't want to price them so low that I'm losing money, but I don't want to rip people off either!

So what do you guys think?  What do you think they would sell for, just by looking at them?

I think $10 dollars per pair would be fair. What I try to do (and it may be a really bad way to go at it) is think about the cheapest I can afford to sell my items and then double it. Because on the off chance that I get a wholesale order I won't feel completely ripped off. Because the wholesale price is usually half of retail. I hope that helps!

Single pair for 13.95; sets for 24.95, and I would keep the sets to 6 charms rather than 7. These are hand-made charms. I can't see them going for less.

Very cute, by the way!
