Actually I did not want to deliver a statement to this discussion and what some one understand for Beaders Ethics. Unfortunately some incommodities happened, which I cannot ignore.
My understanding for “Beaders Ethics” is that I ask the Pioneer of a Technique or a Design for permission to use or I pay for the lesson on “How to do”. And I give credit to the Originator!
I’m not the pioneer of “swirled lentils” and all bead shapes derived from lentils such as hearts, square shapes or tube alike. These bead shapes are to be seen partly on the web page of Barbara Fajardo and for the hearts Elissa Powell is the pioneer.
Thus I cannot give permission for copying these bead shapes, and no one else can. It is affair of these artists.
I respect the business and creativity of each one. I do not raise a requirement for pioneer on a bead shape / design / technique, which were already published by other artists!
I never contact customers of my friends or own customers and offer there my beads or finished jewels for purchase!
I don’t have understanding for alleged artists who express their creativity excluding by the fact that they steal others ideas and spend them as their own.
It is not sufficient to publish the article about Beaders ethics in large letters on the web page. One should also adhere to it!
This is MY guarantee I can give my friends and customers and all the real pioneers on beads in my case. And for the rest….. I again ignore and still do what I love and in the way I love to do!
