1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Questions about infringement (to avoid faux pas) on: May 31, 2010 08:42:49 PM
So now that I am getting more in to swaps, and making more wish lists, I have a few questions about what is OK to ask for and what is not OK, or if everything is a go when it comes to crafts.

For example, are there any regulations on:

-asking for copies of paintings

-asking for copies of t-shirt designs

-asking for things with logos on them (for example, a Chanel logo jewelry box)

-asking for copies of crafts others have made, either by professional artisans or etsy sellers

All of these would be for my own personal use, of course, and I wouldn't sell them or claim they were the real thing. I have no personal problem with "look-a-like" or "inspiration" crafts, and I have gotten a feeling for other areas of inspired crafts (for example using characters from movies and tv) but I just wanted to make sure I do not get in trouble or get anyone else in trouble. Thanks!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Designer Vinyl Jewelry on: May 26, 2010 05:11:32 PM
This is my first posted craft!  Cheesy

I love making jewelry, and I have fallen in love with designer vinyl- or art toys, as some call them, and so I thought that jewelry made out of designer vinyl would be awesome! So after collecting zipper pulls from Kidrobot, ebay and the KR forums, I made two necklaces, a charm bracelet and a pair of earrings! Here are some pics:

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Harry Potter round ?? swap on: April 09, 2009 05:10:42 PM
Would anyone be interested in doing a Harry Potter swap? I read them for the first time a year ago, and it's my dream swap! The 6th movie is coming out this summer- maybe we could make send outs around that time? I'd love to organize it but I've only swapped once.
