Ownership-Pattern Copyrights

  Its one of those issues that comes up every few days. I often wonder why people think its okay to change someone else's design a tiny bit and then call it their own. How is this okay? Do they not know the laws of copyrights? Do they not realize that their reputation as a designer will be marred as it is so completely unethical that most other designers will "disconnect" from them.
  I'm confused- How can you call yourself a "designer" if all you are doing is stealing ideas and patterns from another? Is it worth that quick dollar?
 Please respect others designs and images. The constant unethical behavior by a few make many of the designers not want to share their work.

And the variety of sliders available now are so awesome.  These are a few of the latest and The eagle is one that has been on studio table for a few months. Finally got the time to get that done. Hope you all are well!

Wow-- It has been forever since I have posted here. Life has definitely thrown me a curve ball or two and its taken me a bit to get back in the groove of things.
Hopefully I can return to my regular routine of posting here.
So- these bracelets are something new I have been working on.  Licorice leather  embellished with beadwork and slider beads. Fun to make and they dont take long to put together.. Great quick gift if you need one!
