The items in question were beads, buttons, charms, clasps, etc.
Findings basically. I am starting out with some semi-precious stone
beading jewelery as the wiring in what will be my future studio is
not yet completed. I hope to work with Ag, Au, and Plat eventually -
nothing like dreaming big, eih…but there were some fundamental
jewelery/hand skills in beading so I thought whilst I was waiting on
the electricians…might as well do something productive!! It is not
my intention to use another artists work in a demeaning way…nobody
needs that! I did however, want to make sure of the
legalities/customary traditions in this area. Judging from some of
the flamming e-mails I have received, it is apparent some folks were
talking about directly ripping off other artists work. That was NEVER
the intent or question and I apologize to those who thought it was.
Thanks again for everyone’s input. I really appreciate it…it’s
great to know so many folks are still passionate about what they
do…a rare gem in todays world:)
