    I would umm and ahh, I put yes because, well, Im stricken by them! If they were maybe $12-16 I wouldn’t need to think about it so much 😛 I would bet others would be more willing to lay out that than $20 too 🙂 They are gorgeous by the way, way to go!

    heyveldc:  I’ll be honest. I only donate to animal charities so if that’s what it was for then yes! If not, then no. I might be quite a bit cynical but I’m just not down with furthering the human cause and I think that’s ok. The flowers are very pretty and depending on what it was for, I would definitely consider it.

    Not that much. I’d probably pay $10-12 if it benefited a charity I believe in (Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, Marie Stopes, Charity:Water, someone like that) but I’m reeeeeally picky about my charities.

    I voted no, mainly because I have no reasont to purchase a beaded flower and nothing to do with it.

    If you were thinking of doing something like this, I would just sell it as a whole bouquet on etsy.

    I would buy a bouquet for more than that, but I can’t see a use for a single flower, so I’d probably pass, even if it benefited a charity.

    Those are gorgeous!  Personally, I’d consider buying the bouquet, but not individual flowers.  However, it’d help if the pricing was a little more competitive; I bought all my real flowers for less than $300 total…

    They’re stunning. Normally I would say no, but I think 20 is a steal considering the amount and type of work involved. I would give the option of a single flower or a standard bouquet with x amount of flowers though. Have them offered in a few colors. Maybe the option for custom bouquets for an upcharge too.

    Are you still thinking of making an etsy shop? 

    To answer your question, I might pay $20 for one but I would be much more willing to purchase if I could multiple flowers for a deal like 2 for $30 or something like that.  And I totally want to use beaded flowers for my wedding now.  Are they super hard to make?

    heyveldc:  I would pay that if it wasnt going to charity, but I am a crafter too and know that people rarely appreciate our time put in to things.

    I’m not sure what I would use a single flower for. But I’d pay $100 (or more) for a bouquet that had 5 flowers, so the price seems about right per flower.

    Depends on the type of charity and where the bulk of the charity’s earnings go. But if that was satisfactory to me then yes I would.
