You can decide the price of the bracelets by how good quality they are. It works for me. and if you have trouble figuring that out, just ask your friends what they think the price should be. But don't make it too low. You'll get lots of sales but not enough money!! I know from past experience

Look at sites like Etsy.com, and see what their prices are like, some are a tad inflated but generally they're alright on pricing:)

I agree that craft fairs, garage sales, and flea markets are a good place to start. Especially if you're from a small town like me- less competition, and the fees (if any) are generally reasonable. Looking to open an online store is worth looking into, but from what I've found, selling jewelry online tends to be less profitable because of competition, listing fees, and shipping prices.

As for prices... I was talking to my dad and my brother (who owns his own silk-screening and vinyl business) and told them I considered $2 a bracelet. My reasoning was that the stands I've seen at my county fair tend to sell them for $1 or less. They both looked at me like I was crazy. My dad told me not to go under $10! He pointed out that the bracelets at the fair were mass-produced and not good quality, whereas I put a lot of time, effort, love, and money into my bracelets. And my brother was the same way. I don't know if I WOULD go $10, but that's something to think about.

Other artists here charge by how thick the bracelet is or how many colors they used. Also, consider offering friends and family bracelets at a discount. Just some suggestions for you. :)
