I was just wondering how much you would spend on a handmade 3-beaded hemp choker??? I need a figuration (if thats even the word) on how much to sell mine for.

depending on whether or not you buy hemp in bulk is a deciding factor i'm sure.  figure out how many items you get out of a ball, add in the cost of the beads and any labor cost.  divide by number of items and there's your asking price.  surely not less than $7, i should think.

I used to sell hemp necklaces and bracelets. I would buy a ball of hemp for 10 dollars and be able to make at least 20 or more necklaces. I would sell the necklaces for 8 dollars and the bracelets for 4. People bought them. After all in the stores they are like 14.99 and up.

I like to go to the malls and look in the "accessory" stores..the ones that only sell barrettes and scarves and foo foo stuff...

That's how I can guage my prices.  (and get good ideas of what's 'in'!)
