I have had ideas of making beaded cord bracelets to list on my Etsy shop for a while now.  I am pretty quick at making the cord, but stringing on the beads takes forever.  Say it only takes me an hour to make the cord (I could be wrong, it has been a while since I timed myself working on one) but it will take me 4 or 5 hours laying out the beads and stringing them in the correct order.  While I would love to get paid for all of my time, I just took a $35 dollar seed bead bracelet and turned something that I would charge over $100 for.  I have a feeling that unless I use crystals that people would rather pay closer to the $35.
How do I handle this?

When in doubt, use more glue!

Look Ma, I'm on Ravelry!
