Hey everyone,
I am trying to take selling my stuff online seriously, but I need some help!
I keep asking opinions of people who aren't familiar with crafting and the process and they prices they've suggested are reflected in my current store. I currently have only 3 things in the store (hoping to remedy that in the coming week), but as far as whats up there, do you see those as fair prices?
I'm leaning towards charging a bit more, but I don't want to make my jewelry too expensive...any thoughts?

Without looking at your prices at all (it's not something I keep up with, so I have no informed opinion), you must at least cover your material costs, overheads and time spent. Anything less and you are paying a stranger to work.

As long as you've covered time and materials, it's fair Smiley

Love your store so far by the way!

Your prices seem fine to me (a crafter, but one who knows nothing about resin work).  Very pretty products, too.

Your jewelery is beautiful. I love it. The prices look decent, too. But, as others have said, you need to make a profit. As a customer, I'd be more than willing to pay your prices... and I'd be willing to pay a little more, too, because they look so pretty and well-done.

I'm bookmarking your Etsy shop... and I can't wait to see what else you put on there!

Cute stuff!  I think your prices are fair and you could probably go up a bit if you wanted to.  You can always put things on sale.  Sometimes you sell more that way anyway because people are more willing to buy when they feel like they're getting a deal.
