Revised 2010 price list

In a kind of 'suck it and see' manouvre, I've decided to lower my hourly rate and adjust my prices accordingly.

How much to charge ones time out at, is an ongoing debate in the handmade world. It's a constant balancing act between making a living, giving your work some worth, and yet staying competative in a busy marketplace.
I'm lucky in that I have a day job and don't rely on selling jewellery to pay the bills, however this also means I don't spend enough time marketing myself and approaching the niche corners where I see my work sitting and where it arguably could fetch those prices.

So to this end I've decided to try this approach and see what happens.
Let shake it up!
