    Square ring Byz necklace

    The one time I ordered a set of them, they had this issue: http://www.theringlord.org/forum/index.php?/topic/9305-machine-cut-stainless-steel-16g-316-not-lining-up/page__hl__square#entry73304

    Spyral Pyramid By Rescyou

    This one is my favorite of the bunch. These things are so impressive, I don't know what to say!

    What weaves are...

    Yup. The battery pack is just above the top of the picture. This does actually cause it to be a bit difficult to wear. And btw, that's Inverted Round, not Captive Inverted Round. You don't need to have the captive rings for there to be a tube.

    Definitely my best seller at the one craft fair I've done so far.

    How to price my stuff

    I actually (mostly) agree with PlutoniumX. There's always a fudge factor; in Narrina's example, it's how much profit you want to make. As far as equating it with your day job's hourly wage, that can be extremely variable between individuals. An investment banker's hobby product shouldn't cost 100 times more than a fast food worker's, especially if it's of similar or lower quality. When pricing, if it's a situation where I have to fudge a guess instead of using my spreadsheet, then what I'll ask myself is, "what would I expect to pay for this service?"

    Low-end event table prices

    I don't have terrifically much stock yet (I don't maille that often), but I think I've got enough to (mostly?) fill a 6-square-foot table or so. Having not sold at any events yet, I have no idea what to expect in terms of prices. What have people seen as far as, for example, table cost a small craft fair? What factors do you use to determine whether it's worth the cost (and your time)? Please use numbers if you can; I understand that they'll be vague.

    Newbie Looking For Advice

    Two thoughts off the top of my head: 1) Making clothing-sized materials takes a *long* time. Take how long you think it'll be and double it for something closer to the real time. 2) Go ahead and start with saw-cut instead of machine-cut rings. Yeah, they're more expensive, but not much, and the cost of materials is negligible (next to the cost of time) if you're not using precious metals.

    First time making the spiral weave

    I'm curious about this one: http://www.mailleartisans.org/board/viewtopic.php?t=16611 To repeat the question I just posted there... is that a basic spiral weave that's been "locked" in place by just adding more rings? Or am I missing something?

    Tiny Silver Euro 4-1 Bracelet

    Wow, that's a lot of silver and a lot of time! If you don't mind, what price do you intend to charge for that piece?
