    I like most of them, expecially the orange one (have you entered it in the orange challenge?). I'm not bothered about the second one (just personal taste tho') but I can see it being very saleable cos its quite quirky - makes me think of liquorice alsorts.

    As for your prices - depending onthe size of the pendants, I think you could maybe increase your prices a little bit but not too much. I personally think that some people don't know what to charge for dichroic glass. I've seen prices waaaaaaay above the £15 that you saw, expecially around Christmas time on the craft markets.

    I bought a couple of wholesale lots on auction from an ebay seller so I got them pretty cheap and I also retail them between £5 and £7 each. These are about 1 and half inches in size. We do quite well with them and most of our customers say that they've paid between £15 and £25 for them!!!!

    I've also considered getting them with sterling bails on - you can obviously charge more for them but I've had several customers showing interest but not bought because the bails were only plated.

    Another tip - the ones I bought had little heart shaped "hand-made with love" charms on the back which doubled as a bail and my customers love them.

        Love the orange and the "allsorts" ones best. I think you prices are more than resonable as they include postage, I think you could maybe charge a little more.

            They are fantastic!

            I love the third one, spotty one, the best. Ive just booked myself onto a course to learn how to do dichroic glass. I think it might take a long time to get them like yours tho!

              I think they are all gorgeous. I think you could certainly charge a good bit more. I have seen dichoric glass (if that's how it's spelled) a whole lot more expensive than that.

              Great work.

              Cheers.

                    They're great. It was weird as I usually go for blue, but my eyes went straight for the orange one, gorgeous.

                      I agree... that's my fave too.

                        Your latest pieces

                        I like the Berty Bassett one also. It is quirky.

                        I think your prices are very reasonable and agree that they could be increased. I sell my dichroic necklaces at fairs for £15, but this includes a sterling silver chain. Bullseye glass with leather thongs are £10, with plated findings.

                        I find that my customers are quite happy with £15 and often tell me that they have seen them as much as £35 (this did include a sterling bail though, mine are plated).

                        I was at a show recently and there was a crafter charging £45 for her dichroic necklaces - leather thong, sterling bail. But they were large pendants, bigger than the normal 1-1.5". They did stand out, but to be honesst, I thought they were a little large. And a large price!

                        Sometimes though you have to pitch to your audience.

                        But never undersell - you'll never make a good living otherwise.
                        Take care

                            I like the cross and reckon it would work really well with red on black too.

                            My favourite is the orange one though... makes me feel all austin-power-groovy
