I have just started making my own handmade jewelery sets.I make earrings and bracelets and necklaces.

I will be selling in sets which will include a pair of earrings and a necklace or a pair of earrings and a  bracelet or bracelets on there own.

There made out of tiny glass beads.

I would be making sets.And selling them as sets or selling the bracelets as singles.

but mostly as sets.

I will be selling them locally mostly.

So I would like help pricing them.
they do not look all that good but I will place pictures on my profile later if possible.

But since I am new to this I already know they do not look all that but I am just starting out and would like to get started making them.

I'll be the first to say cost-of-materials *times* 3. If that isn't satisfactory, keep adding $5 until you feel good about the price. Very scientific, I know. But maybe you might feel OK about sending something out the door for $10, where I would cringe unless it was $15. So there's a comfort level for everyone, and only you can know what yours is.

I don't really follow a formula.  You have to cover all your costs and your time, of course.  But then, you have to look at your customers.  Who are they?  What do they usually spend on jewelry?  What are the paying for jewelry sets that are roughly equivalent to yours?

Cost of Materials x 3

OR

Materials + minimum wage + overhead

That's what I've always been told.
