I made this bracelet the other day and I wanted to know if it was worth selling.

I think so,
Calculate your price by taking the cost of materials and $15-$20 an hour for your efforts. Consider putting it up on etsy, see if it sells.

No, I would not buy it cause it is not my style, but that is just me I'm sure there are lots of people who like that kind of design. for example, my mom likes that kind of design.

I really hate to burst your bubble, but I've seen that style of bracelet at Ardene, a cheap accessories store only slightly better than Claire's Sad Usually, things like your bracelet are priced 3 for $10 or 2 for $10, but it's individual price could be as high as $15.

Unless you're using Czech glass beads, or Swarovski beads, that style is not really worth your time and effort to make for sale. The only way I can think of to use regular glass seed beads is to offer making this bracelet in custom colours.

I really hope I didn't put you off playing with beads, because I bet you loved making it.

Its a lovely bracelet and could be a lovely gift for my wife. I'd pay an easy $10 to $12 for it! Smiley

I would pay $12-15 at the most...

I have seen this style selling at some stores too.

But if you make it in awesome colors and add a little variation in the beads I'm sure it could sell for more.

I'd pay about $5-$6 for it.  I got a few of these bracelets from Forever 21 for about that amount.

I know this thread was started a while ago, but I thought I would put in my input in case it is still wanted Smiley

As it is, I would pay $8-$10 for the bracelet (in different colours). However, if you added some feature beads and maybe a couple of charms in a theme, I could see it going for $15-$20. Think cheap add ons like small pieces of cut off ribbons and material for a tattered princess style, or small safety pins and broken chain pieces for a punk/goth look. Both of these and many other 'specialty' styles seem to attract more money for the same work/effort, and would look cool in this style.

This is a case where if you were to charge even $10 an hour, you had better make sure you can make it start to finish in under 60 minutes.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.
