Cluster Jewelry

What's hot right now? Cluster Jewelry....!  Every item that I've posted with a cluster of dangles has been a HOT seller in my Etsy shop.  I can't keep them in stock.  As soon as one is posted it's sold.  The cluster jewelry pieces are very labor intensive.  Each little drop is hand wire wrapped and attached to the piece individually.  I'm thinking that I may not be charging enough for my labor when I create these designs.  Question: how much do you charge an hour for your time spent on an item?  I need some advise please...

  1. I have been told that it is good to charge $10 an hour of creation. They are gorgeous pieces and probably worth a lot more but....if you want them to sell maybe you have found your nitch.

  2. Fabulous jewelry!
    That's always the big let-down when you make anything, what to charge for your time and expertise/creativity, it's never what it should be or worth but, the thrill of selling is great isn't it?
    May you continue to be a fabulous creator!

  3. I can see why they sold and should keep on selling,,,they are beautiful.

    Thank you for the kudos to my Jan abs necklace.

  4. It is always difficult to know what to charge for labor, and I think we all feel we do not chrge enough. But then again, we want it to sell...
