Spoon ring and hat pin

Post by gingerjo on Sat 18 Feb 2017 - 21:54

Ii made a ring from a salt spoon.


And a teapot hat pin.

I need to think how much to charge for these at the illicit market. They are bohemian crystals beads on this one.

What do you reckon, 3-4 or is that not enough. Don't want to undersell either. When people pay 5 for a pin badge I think I could charge that or a bit more.

Think they're both great, Jo. Haven't a clue how much to charge, as I don't know the market for this type of thing, but if people are paying a fiver for a badge then you should certainly charge more.

Keep looking at that ring. It's brilliant!

Good use of an old spoon.
Pins, how much do they cost you to make? I would imagine anyone into that type of thing would pay a fiver.

A fiver would be a good start and if people don't buy them you know you've set the price a little high, but have no idea really, it's very pretty though and I like the spoon too.

The pin probably cost around 1 to make, and they don't take long. Thanks all.
I've been asked if I'm making the rings to sell,lol. I really need my vice. Which has mysteriously disappeared!!

There's a stall with those spoons in Covent garden and they're quite expensive, have a look on etsy at what people charge for similar, and pins. 5 seems fine especially if people pay that for a badge.
Both are fab.

Thanks Karilyn, I am not going to sell the rings, it was just the pin.Although I have been asked if I'd make a ring for a friend.
