Todd;
I am selling my stainless for $75 and Copper for $100. Copper is my best seller, and I am in NY. Stainless is selling better in Colorado. Hope that helps.

So, if you take out overhead, and let's call that $5, and they take you 2 hours a pop, you are sitting at about $10 an hour if you sell them for $25.

Lots of people will tell you not to do it that way, I just like to check that every once in a while to see if the item is worth the effort or time.

Give us a little more info on them. Are they segmented? made out of a singe chunk of wood? are they thick? are they angel hair pasta thin? what kind of finish?

5 bucks? where are you getting your bangle supplies from?

What supplies do you need? I use wood blanks which cost $5 at the very most as long as they are not segmented obviously, or I cast PR blanks for even less. For me, it is really just my time. I knock a bangle out in about 45 minutes nowadays.

I start my bangle pricing at $30 and go up from there depending upon the awesomeness of the piece. I tend to get more for my PR bangles than the wood ones.

if you use only wood, i can see the cost being that low. i was refering to the copper or chrome inserts. like what "bangle guy" sells
