Oh those cats are soooo cute. And as someone else said, I wouldn't want to be competition, just like to know where to get the cute kitties... reminds me of my "ginger cat" its a little figurine that is so cute and amazing because every other miniature cat looks like...crud...I have no idea where she came from, and have no idea how to find out. But I want more little kitties! And those ones are pretty darn cute. :3

Off course you can't prevent people from copying things. But to give them the brand/shopname is a bit too much I think  Wink, and kills creativity.
I hope people get inspired from this jewellery, and go make their own original pieces Smiley I'll be sure to pass my dad the compliment Smiley

I disagree - I tend to think the recent rash of "don't steal my ideas" or "don't copy my stuff!" attitudes is more of what kills creativity. The DIY movement is fundamentally about openness and, well, doing things yourself - sharing ideas, being inspired by one another, and the like is what Craftster and DIY are all about. Especially if you didn't hand-mold the cats and such yourself (they're not really YOURS, per se').

I'm not trying to be controversial, and I do love the earrings- I just wanted to contribute to the discussion. Smiley

hi antarcticraft, no problem, new views make it the more interesting Wink.
I really do think inspiring is a good thing. Without inspiration there won't be a lot of crafty stuff. I can't prevent people from getting inspired or wanting to copy them. But I do think it's not up to me to tell where I get my materials from. This would make it VERY easy to copy them. But this is just my point of view, I'm sure lot of people wil agree and disagree. It's also a nice point of discussion Smiley I'm curious what other people think of this.

Personally I wouldn't copy these exactly...I just don't feel good about making exact duplicates of another artists work. I like to say I came up with the idea and made it myself! If something inspires me, I like to put a twist on it to make it my own. Wouldn't little plastic dragons or dogs or those little New Orleans Kingcake Babies make good earrings too? Know what I mean?  Wink
I think when you post something on craftster, however, you are opening yourself up for questions, comments, and people who genuinely like your idea might want to make them for themselves...and come to you for guidance...because you know how to do what they want to do.
 One of the best examples of sharing I've seen here is John Golden's resin pouring tutorial post...where he doesn't just show you everything...but gives a link within the post to the place where he gets his rings and pendants. I don't think he's hurting for giving up his secrets...if anything it's making more people come to him for his beautiful pendants & rings.

 With the internet it is easy to find anything anymore. If anyone wants to get the cats or birds...check out amazon playmobil birds
or amazon lego cats. They are toys and these would look great in a doll house too!

Please put your web info or etsy shop in your signature or profile...so people can come to you for the Lunique original creations. Craftster allows that link...so take advantage of it.  Smiley
