Barrel Weave

About this design:

Taught myself this one today. It claims to be for beginners but I am having a heck of a time with this. Probably because I didn't watch the tutorial, I just figured it out from the finished product. I have been selling quite a few of these bracelets. Each one gets quicker to make. I am still having a hard time pricing. I haven't really figured out a way to price them I just base it on how much the components cost. I require 50% down so I can order the parts. I need a better way to charge. Even though all my chain maille sales have been custom order I am trying to bulk up my inventory.

My dad is having a moving sale next Saturday and I want to put some stuff out, not too much, mostly stretchie bracelets and earrings. I do want to put out my maille bracelets...who knows you know people are in garage sale mode...
