Pricing and setting up a collection of jewellery that I’ve literally spent the last 9 months incubating and birthing, is an emotional journey. How do you put a monetary value on something so close to your heart? And how can anyone bear to put up their brainchild for display where anyone and everyone can love up and hate on?
The thoughts and the comments have been intense - all time highs, amazement, crippling fear and doubt, confidence, imposter syndrome, and all that flipping mess.
You need to be proud of this
You need to charge for your time, for your ideas, for your skills, and that’s priceless
Oh, you’re so inspiring
Who the heck am I to get to display this
Well someone might like it enough to pay for it
Oh, definitely ask for the higher end
That’s quite a demanding price
People won’t see the time it takes to make this
This is beautiful
This is going to cost me a lot of money, isn’t it
