  • Yes, another mosaic mirror!

    This is a mirror I have made to order. The customer specified the colours and I'm really pleased with how it's worked out. Love these colours together

    Ooh, that's lovely, the colours do go well together. How long does it take you to do a piece like that?

        Thank you!

        Thank you!

        In total about half a day, but I make the mirrors in stages - e.g. I mosaic but then need to leave it over night to dry before I can grout. So the mirror is made over a few days but if you add the time together it's about half a day.

                  In that size shown they are £29.99 plus £9.99 P&P. Does that sound about right - it seems to be too much at craf fairs but online they sell ok?

                    Yes, I think that's a very fair price, it's a beautiful piece (and individual) of handcrafted work. TBH I would have expected to pay more for it.

                      Thats really nice. I think the price is about right. I'd pay that for something customised as its so original. You've got a real talent.

                        imho craft fairs are not the best place to fairly judge your prices,there are those who for some reason charge a fortune but still seem successful,and those who sell everything for £1 making everyone else look extortionate.
                        They are obviously a good buy if they go well online,sounds very fair to me xx

                            Those colours look lovely together, it looks gorgeous!

                            I would expect to pay between £40 and £50 for something like that so your price sounds fine.

                            I agree, craft fairs can be odd places - some people will spend loads whereas others moan if anything is over £1

                              Pricing...

                              Thank you everyone. I find pricing very difficult, as it really varies from person to person as to what they will pay. I think if you're a crafter yourself you appreciate the work that's gone into making something and are more inclined to pay for that.

                              I try to take into account the price of the materials and then double that price to cover my time. That means that I'm on pless than minimum wage when I think about it but there you go!

                              I would worry about charging more in that it would put a lot of people off buying, so hopefully I've got it about right.

                              I agree with what you say re: craft fairs. I did quite a few last year to no avail. Might do one before xmas though and maybe try and find one that's quite regular, so maybe if a customer sees my work but isn't sure about the price, or needs to have a think, they can see me again another time.
