    thank you -i bought a strand from LB and EVERY bead was absolutely gorgeous. i was thrilled with the purchase. I am pricing this pendant (along with a 18 inch sterling silver chain) at $28.00. do you think this is a good price? to be honest it took me maybe 10 minutes to make it, but i am trying to price my items close to what i find in retail stores.

    If you are using a sterling silver chain I do not find this unreasonably priced. Is is silver or silver plate. If it is a silver you may want to price it higher. I would buy it if I had the money.

    What size green snakeskin is the pendant. Well I am wondering what to look for on Lima Bead site for the stone?

    Good idea to have some options for your customers! The pendant is lovely, and I think your price for the set is fair. You might want to think about what you’d charge for the pendant alone too. Good luck at your show!

    Oh I think I have to make pendants galore for me, and bracelets too. I have never liked the feel of a bracelet rubbing on my wrist. Everyone I see I want. Oh goodness I will have so much jewelry I will have to sell it. ROTFLOL

    I think you should make the pendant for that price and charge extra if someone wants the chain. People often have a great chain and just switch pendants. You would probably sell tons. I have a super silver chain that I have had for years and it has seen more different pendants. And I love it. Kind of a signature piece. Can anyone out there tell me how they do a “trunk” show or “home” show. Do you sell whats right there or take orders or what? I’m thinking maybe adding that to my business card. Thanks
