There's a pretty good post up top about pricing.  I couldn't even guess what you should price it at.  What I've been doing lately is seeing what other crafters are selling similar items for.  That helps.  I also consider what I want to get for the item to make it worth my while to make a bunch more of the item.  The best price gauge I found so far is craft shows.  At a show, when I tell someone the price and they yank out their wallet, then I know it's priced too low.  If they go, "oh" and put it back on the table, then it's priced too high. 

Okay, This post doesn't help much.  Good Luck.

Yes, how much do you want per item in order for it not to be a dreaded chore to make them over and over? That's what you need to charge. If you can't see paying yourself $15-20 per hour, perhaps a less labor intensive product is in order. I imagine it's quite tedious to get all those beads on there.
