Flowers in full bloom do not last forever!

I make jewellery out of fimo. I love roses to therefore rose inspired jewelry.
Here are some examples of the rings I make.

The first and second one are priced 12 (14.8$) and the third one 8 (9.9$)
Now, I see a lot of shops popping up who sell plastic rose rings, of which some who charge as much as me for 1 rose ring. And I know they only cost 50ct for that rose and a ring.
(I recognize those flowers because I'm also in the decoden sector and got freebies from a company)

My pricing on these rings depends on the amount of flowers and leafs and the rest of the materials.
(I give myself 8/hour, about 10$, than I calculate how long it took per flower and the assembling and than add profit)
Do you think I'm underselling? Or pricing too much??

Thanks in advance!

Looking at other fimo rose rings out there, your prices seem right to me. Looks like that's what the market has decided they'll pay, whether it's plastic or not.
