    Thank you everyone :)
    It’s hard deciding what price to put on things, I mean copper is really cheap but the beads were quite expensive plus the time it takes to make & then oxidise & polish…….. :D

    Yes, it’s hard to price them right, but I think your work is soo great you can price them higher. I’ve checked your Etsy shop and you have so many great designs there! Keep up the good work and you will definitely sell more!

    This is phenomenal and congratulations on your first ETSY sale!!! Yay!!!!!
    I’m with Little Chick. I checked out your Etsy site (I’m so impressed!) and I also think you could higher on your prices.
    You go girl!!!! :-D

    WireWrangler says:

    Congratulations! I, also, am not surprised. I am surprised that you haven’t sold everything.
    Peeked at your site, your work shows extremely well.
    I agree that you are undervalued. The sterling and larger pieces in particular I would say. I should think that pricing on Etsy is difficult due to the sheer numbers. Others have far more experience with Esty, I have no experience with this site.
    You Go Girl! and…..You Rock! Just for fun pun.
