Spreading the word for a fellow bracelet maker! Stealing other people’s work is never cool.
I recently discovered that my copyrighted photograph of some of my bracelets was being used without my permission by the clothing brand Delia’s on a set of nail stickers. Unfortunately, although it’s illegal, big brands do this all the time. Check out the article about my situation on Design Observer and spread the word that it’s not cool for big brands to put independent artists at a disadvantage. observatory.designobserver.com/feature/dear-bonnie-cheated-in-chicago/38344/
I’ve been pretty bad at posting things on Tumblr lately, but here’s 1 of the bracelets I just finished for a swap! (Go check out @tan_su_sian on Instagram for some more awesome bracelets!) You can always follow me on IG for more bracelets and embroidery @knottyascanbe, since I tend to post on there a lot more.
Just finished up this bracelet for a custom order!
I’m always happy to work with people to get just the bracelet they want, whether it’s a design in my store or not. Feel free to message me on here or Etsy for your own custom order =)
2 new kumihimo bracelets with beads are now available in my store, so get your kumihimo on!
Finally getting unlazy and actually editing some photos tonight! (Photos which I took a week and a half ago…)
So that means that this Braided Primary Colors Friendship Bracelet is now up on my Etsy! Feel free to check it out!
Also, someone please give me motivation to photograph things! I’ve got a bunch of bracelets that I need to take pictures of so I can share them with you all, but, alas, I’m lazy.
Eep! Sorry I haven’t posted on here in quite some time! I’ve been busy making and doing all sorts of Christmas things lately, so now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to the bracelets. My goal for next year is to try to add a new bracelet to my store every week. I’m not quite sure if things will work out that way, but we’ll see how it goes. I’m hoping to add a couple kumihimos with beads to my store soon, so keep an eye out for those!
Another project I’d like to do next year is to try and embroider some sort of word or phrase every week. I think it’d be a fun project to try and stick with the whole year. If anyone has any suggestions for words, quotes, lyrics, phrases, etc. to embroider feel free to send them my way! They can be funny, serious, whatever. I’m trying to compile a big list of ideas now, so I have plenty of options.
I hope everyone had a good holiday season!
