I saw pictures of his twig work, and there is absolutely no
question but that he has stolen, twig for twig, the designs of
Micky. The work is blatantly identical.
I looked at both sites, and I see similar, not exact copies. Using
twigs is a design motif. How could two people use twigs and replicate
how twigs appear in nature and not look similar?
I am making a ring with a twig motif and the basic structure is
similar, and I have never seen the work of either before, so from the
replies so far I can assume if someone saw what I made I too would be
accused of copying Mickey. Except, my design has leaves…
If I made a design using round wire in a random pattern similar to
Mickey’s bracelet, not exact, similar, would it be ripping off her
Look on Etsy and you can find some similar items in cuff and bangle
Google “Elizabeth and James twig cuff bracelet Neiman Marcus” to see
how silly this is.
I repeat from another of my posts, unless a mold was made of a Mickey
Roof piece, it is a similar motif, not duplication.
The idea has been done before. I have an artist in my gallery who
That the difference between using a motif and copying a design is
not understood by some on this forum is quite disappointing to me.
That Mickey thinks she was copied might not be true. I do not know

That Mickey is having an issue is clear, and that she is getting
support is clear, that it is appropriate is not. Seems like a bit of
slander to me…
