So not real expensive. If I have to guess I would say about .75 to a 1.00. That's probally guesssing a little high.
agree..it's not expensive especially if you get 'em plastic beads or findings from WM. BUT,
, if you start using the crystals and cats eyes beads etc etc expensive beads, it does run high for just one headband.
