Question Custom beading

Hello, I am beading 2 eagle feathers for a man. I am following his pattern, which took some planning to reduce it to the feather shank size. I am using my beads, he had already put the leather on the shank. I don't know how much to charge him, could you tell me what it might be worth? Thanks so much, Debi

Thank you Horsehairjewls....I am using 11/0 beads, the pattern is not real, real complicated and the beading amounts to about 1" x 2" for each feather.

Also depends on TYPE of beads, the amount of time and effort that it took you to work on the pattern, and to do the actual beading.

I am using czech 11/0's. I had to go by his pattern, so it took some work to make it fit on the feather. I don't know how much time I spent because of trial and error on the pattern part. I am doing it for the love of beading and doing new things and perhaps some word of mouth advertising more so than the money...

Well, in that case, just give it to him and then work out a reasonable price on his next order.

Hello. I am new here and I am very interested in learning the art of beading. Is there a site that shows how or books that can be purchased that would teach me how to do this. I really want to do this for my own pleasure. I am disabled and this looks and sounds like a great thing to help me.
Thanks to all

Welcome! There are many posts here in this forum for beginners, as well as links to websites. You might have to do a little digging though.

Good luck!
