Earrings to sell. Turn your DIY hobby into a business

The bitty beads featured in these earrings cost $1.50 per pair. The kidney bean ear wires are $0.44 per pair, and the head pins start at $0.08 per pair. That makes each set of earrings only $2.02 to make. And the amount of time you ask? These earrings are just two wire wrapped loops away from making your hella cashola.

How to price these earrings? I found a few tips from the Jewelry Making Journal that were quite helpful! They advise to add together…

  1. The amount of materials (for these earrings, $2.02)
  2. Multiply 4x the cost of materials ($2.02 x 4 =$8.08)
  3. Add your prorated hourly rate
  4. Add in 10% for your overhead (someone’s got to keep the AC pumping in the hot summer heat!)

For our earrings pictured above we will do $2.02 (materials) x 4 = $8.08.

These earrings are a 10-minute project, presuming our hourly rate is $20, add in $3.33 for labor

Multiply this total ($11.41) by .1 to get your 10% overhead ($1.14)

…and Ta-Dah! Your base retail cost for the above earrings is $12.55. This price gives you enough wiggle room to be able to wholesale your goods and still make a profit when that boutique comes knocking at your door for your fabulous earring sets.

Thanks for tuning in! Love and Light!
