silentcheesecake Golden rule. There's no artistic integrity in copying and passing along hard work from another as your own. Give credit to those that inspire you. Don't disregard them. And supporting this behavior is just as damaging to hard working artists who make their living from their craft. 3h
  •   silentcheesecake @thevultureprince Indeed! I'm dealing with it right now with a well known individual and it's frustrating. Ugh. 2h
  •   daegl0 I've been struggling with this for years: it's almost as though you can't share your ideas online, especially in graphic art, without worrying if someone is going to put it on a t-shirt without you ever knowing and making a butt-ton of money off of it. It's terrible. 2h
  •   thevultureprince D: that's horrible. It's always the worst when they are well known because then if you call them out everyone thinks you're just whining about nothing. I've had close friends copy my work, bead for bead, and undersell me by more than half of what i was charging. The worst part of it is that they have a job outside of creating jewelry. :/ if it helps at all, no one could even begin to touch how beautiful your work is. 2h
  •   silentcheesecake @daegl0 I'm so sorry. I can completely understand your frustration. It's also an issue that needs to be addressed. It's such a terrible thing to do to hardworking artists. 2h
  •   silentcheesecake @thevultureprince Awww, thank you so much for being supportive. It means so much. You hit the nail on the head! I'm so very sorry that happened to you. Your work is beautiful as well! Hugs!! 2h
  •   brylar1974 From what I've seen it's hard to be completely original in this line of work. I can think of a few artist that do similar stuff to yours. Is it like an exact rip off? Or just too close for comfort? I've seen many items that are similar but not exact copies. If this person is well known, it makes me wonder if I follow them. Cause I follow a lot of taxidermy jewelry artists. 1h
  •   silentcheesecake @brylar1974 I started creating my jewelry in 2005. I sold my first preserved specimen necklace on etsy in 2007. Before I started my small business I made sure I wasn't copying someone's art. I couldn't find anyone suspending insects or tentacles in wax in vials, so I went ahead and did it. Over the years I've had many people approach me asking for advice on how to recreate my work. I've confronted a few people who blatantly copied and they say they have never heard of me although I've been doing this for almost a decade. 1h
  •   silentcheesecake @brylar1974 As @thevultureprince suggested, I can't call anyone out without the threat of being attacked. So I'll just let my work and my history be my best defense. People are going to believe what they want. I just wanted to defend what I've worked so hard on because I have to. 1h
