ok, so long ago, i made a jellyfish lamp.  cool.  here it was http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=126132.msg1216522#msg1216522  well, thats cool, it lives in my daughter's room, great.  this weekend someone from out of the blue contacted me on my flickr asking where i had gotten it, then realizing it was handmade, asking if i could make them one.  she seemed to really want it and was nice, so i started working on it.  i'm about halfway done (no tentacles made yet) here is an in progress shot.


the question is, how much does one charge for a lamp like this, i have no idea.  selling and pricing my work is terrifying, but so is saying 'no' to an earnest request.  help!

If it takes you two hours to make (read your other post), then you should determine what your time is worth, increase it by 200 percent because you're probably underpricing your time, and add in materials.

I wouldn't sell it for less than $75.

Need to consider the amount of time it takes to make and your materials, and make a profit on that
