those are some of the things I like to do, and I was wondering if someone would actually buy them? you know, like I want to start selling all the jewelry I have, I have been making them for several months and I have a bunch of cool crazy stuff but I have no idea if someone would actually buy them.

The dream catchers are very pretty.

I've known people in the past who have sold homemade jewelry (earrings, necklaces, bracelets) and they go for around $5-$20, depending on the intricacy of the piece.

Your stuff looks far better/stylish than some of those. As long as it's quality made and fairly durable, you should do OK on selling them.

If you can crank these in mass, why not consider an online source for selling these, or maybe you already are contemplating that?

Depends on the materials. Setting up an stand at the farmers market (if yours are easy to get into) or on etsy is good way to test the waters.

I have seen prices for similar necklaces range from around $20 to $80 in my local shops.

I really like your designs and think you would do very well at flea markets or the local farmer's market. The designs appeal to all ages. I especially like the middle one and would buy something like that if it was at least 14 carat.

I don;t want to hurt your feelings. but ther market is saturated with that stuff. the feather craze is over and the victorian looking necklaces are not very expensive looking and not very popular...... how about looking at more modern jewelry artisans work an get some ideas work with better materials that is imporant.

You could probably sell a ton of that on Ebay, make good money.

I don't know about the market on eBay for this kind of stuff (I really don't know). But you could probably clean house at a craft fair (assuming you made what is in the photos).
