|Example of a pattern that I created myself|
|Friendship bracelet made of thin threads|
|Friendship bracelet in which eight pieces of variegated |
embroidery thread have been used
I have priced my bracelets according to these criteria:
- number of threads used - the more threads, the wider the bracelet is and it takes more time to finish
- thickness of thread - each of the threads that I use is made up from six thin pieces. I usually use them as they come, but there are a few bracelets that are made of halved threads. thinner thread means more knots, which means more time has to be spent on one bracelet
- variegated threads - these are more expensive than one-coloured threads, therefore depending on the length used, the price goes up
- pattern - logically, simple patterns are finished sooner than the more difficult ones. I have divided the patterns that I use into five categories, each priced differently.
- origin of the pattern - I designed some of my own patterns, very few so far, but as they are my very own ideas, I charged a bit extra for them.
- listing and renewing fees - I currently have two shops. The main one is English and is on Etsy.com, the other one is Czech on Fler.cz. These two websites have very different conditions for selling goods - Etsy charges for listing, Fler does not, but they take more money from you when you sell something. So the prices are set to give me the same profit and the fees are added to the price, therefore they might differ from each other slightly.
