    This is helpful because I always find your use of color fabulous. Interesting that you should mention green and purple–one of my favorite annuals is the hyacinth bean vine which is a riot of purple and green with just a hint of pink. 😀

      Definitely one of my favorite combinations, green and purple. 🙂

    In curious. I don’t know how you know what the cost of your beads are if you remove them from thier original packaging. how to you work up your cost of your piece if one strand was $4 wholesale or $20 wholesale.?? amd where can I find your video on organizing your beads. I would love to see this.
    Thalnks very much Sandy. What you are doing is very giving of you.

      Hi Cynthia, I’m so glad you enjoy my videos and find them helpful! Since I rarely sell my jewelry anymore, I don’t worry about figuring out the cost. However, the usual formula is: your materials cost + a decent wage for your time + overhead + profit = wholesale price. This would be doubled for a retail price.

      Do most casual crafters charge this much? Rarely. Which makes it hard for serious craftspeople & artists to make a living. One reason I decided to focus on teaching rather than selling!

      You’ll find my video on how I organize my beads in my Studio Tour playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg8Lpg6u0akiWc-hN3UeRamUfms03isgp.

      Happy creating!


      P.S. Thanks again for becoming a patron. 🙂
