Your ring looks so good - I feel like I repeating what everyone else has said, however I couldn't help myself - the workmanship in that is amazing, you are truely a skilled worker.  I totally agree on the not less than $20.  I read somewhere, I think it was on craftster somewhere, that a good place to start working out pricing, was to take the cost of the materials and then double it for your time and labour, after that you then add profit at whatever percentage you decide on (I haven't decided yet!)

Thanks you guys! 

Baby Bonsai:  I buy my silver wire and sheet from RioGrande.  Their prices are based on current market, so last time I checked it was a little pricey because the market was way up.  Don't know what it would be now, but when I BOUGHT the wire, it was something like 1/2 ounce for around $9, and for that gauge that gave me close to 100 feet, I think.  They don't have an online catalog, though. 

Selkie:  Thanks for the input.  I was a goldsmith's apprentice for several years, so I know how regular retail pricing usually works, but for my own hand-made stuff, I know sometimes i undervalue my work, especially when I look around the internet at some of the professional jewelry makers who sell stuff similar to mine.  There's that old adage about not selling your stuff too cheap, or people will think it IS cheap, but I also think that over-pricing really limits the market.  So I'm just never sure.  I think it's safe to say at this point that somewhere between $20 and $30, depending on whether I'm selling at, say, a ren faire, or a boutique, is probably about right.  Cheesy
