the more lavish she makes them, the more the buyers like them.  This bracelet

Re: It seems that....
Doesn't she have around $30 of materials in that bracelet? (I won't begin to
guess the amount of labor.) And yet she was willing to let the bidding begin
at $9.99. That's confidence!

Re: It seems that....
No....  The lampwork beads by themselves are worth more than that. And there
are tons and tons of Bali sterling beads in there.  Amazing bracelet!  It's
still at a steal price.  I hope it goes for gobs more - it's stunning!!

Re: It seems that....
LOL - I thought there were more, but I am not sure given the different views
of the bracelet.  Even so, I think the lampwork is worth at least $20, and
the rest of the materials even more.  And I really love that coiled chain
stuff she's used, and all the leaves.  ***sigh***  Someday I am going to bit
the bullet and make a charm bracelet for myself.  :)

Georgia -- a) She has been selling on Ebay long enough to have a following, and
2) She featured that item, I would guess. And featured items get a lot more
bids.

This definitely seems to be the case on eBay now.  I would guess it's because
eBay itself has gotten so huge.  I think they charge a pretty penny for
auctions that are featured, too.

Yes, and I love that she's getting good money on eBay, for handmade
jewelry that is OOAK. And I love her materials -- she doesn't fudge
with quality. I have some of those fancy Bali barrel shapes that I
bought years ago, and they weren't cheap even then!

Her work and her style are an inspiration, eh? A good lesson in
selling something you love, and yes, I'd agree w/Beki that she must be
creating good energy w/her "following".

This is nice to see.

Re: It seems that....
Oh yeah, one thing I forgot to say is -- her work, even the more
delicate designs, look incredibly durable. (one of my pet peeves, esp.
with bracelets, that take such a beating...)

what the ending price will be?
