New Kumihimo Necklace

I listed this necklace in my Etsy shop today. It's about 18 inches long, including the clasp, and I think it's gorgeous--it's the first one I've done in this pattern and I love how it turned out. I make these for the love of making them, and not for any sort of profit. I'd be interested in some feedback on the pricing: this one is listed for $25, because that's how much I'm guessing someone might be willing to pay for it. If I put price tags on my kumihimo that reflect the time I spend on these necklaces, they would each be $100 or more, and I can't imagine anyone wanting one that desperately. So what do you think, is $25 a reasonable amount for a handcrafted necklace like this one?
