cost of making a pen comes down to time spent in workshop hard to put a price on it so labour of Love
cost of metal parts are always on the rise 25% plus postage on one main suppler looking for best deals but quality counts rubbish wont sell in finish product.
cost of Acrylic this year gone up by 25% Wood still hard to find exotics at right price due to import control, casting special Resins blanks for specials takes time
cost of power for lights and Machines, tools, sandpaper, polishes etc
cost of Transport to Craft fairs and cost of stall fee
For me its when people view my Pens and they say there Beautiful even if they dont buy one it puts a smile on my face
the cost is priceless
