Why are some of your earrings double or triple the price of others? You have some beautiful stuff............ me? i buy so much jewelry in the thrift store and pay much less. Postage isnt that much, so i would charge about $10 for all earrings. Do some take alot more time to create, and make. You do goo work.

your products are pretty cool! I think if you priced similar items similarly if not the same, that would help with all the price ranges. For example, button earrings $10, dangly earrings $15, etc.

I didn't want to seem cheap and didn't want to price too high for each item, that's why there's a huge range. I wanted to appeal to all, young people who may want to spend less and older people who don't mind spending more.

The button earrings were easier to make than the paper earrings and with the dangling earrings, the beads cost more so that's why there's such a price difference. But do you think people wouldn't care if the price of the button earrings came up?

and ..ya know...the more i think about it the more reasonable i think the prices are...

Thank you so much! The reason why I price the dangling paper earrings higher is because they took longer to make and were more involved than, say, putting a button on a post.

I also researched to see others in my line of work and their prices are much higher. They are using more expensive supplies (like sterling silver), so I tried to price mine lower.

How are my prices now?

Hello
I think all the recycled paper earrings you should raise the price, I don't think you include your time work in the price.

I, too, think the folded paper earrings (the dangling ones) seem too inexpensive. I would pay twice as much as you're charging for them!
