    Thank you so much, dear sweet Ladies! I do have fun making these.

    I’m thinking about selling some, but am not sure what to charge…Any ideas?

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    These earrings are fantastic, Debra! :D Well, I don’t know how long they take you to make, but I was thinking in the $20-25/pair price range. If they are labor-intensive, go $30.

    Wonderful. My computer says they are shades of blue and lavender???? Even at that color they are so very pretty.

    Fabulous pair of earrings!

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Thank you so much, Lynn, Faith, and Betty.

    Yeah, computers can be funny. I made these to wear with an animal print dress I have. They’re black, brown, bronze, and gold. The colors look funky on my computer, too.

    I’m thinking maybe $25–$30. Good to know I’m thinking like you, Lynn. Pricing things can be tricky. Don’t know how many teachers will be able to afford these, though….. The teachers’ lounge is where I do most of my sales.
