Hello lovely readers, I hope you are well. Today’s post is not a happy one but I became aware of an issue today that I feel I need to share with you.
Claire’s Accessories have recently released a unicorn necklace that is pretty much a complete copy of one produced by a small UK business called Glitterbomb. I’ve bought jewellery from Glitterbomb quite a few times because it’s well made, cute, original and supports an independent artist over a large commercial business. It’s very sad that large companies regularly steal work of small artists and designers to use for themselves. They are large enough to either pay indie designers to use their work or to employ decent designers who don’t steal. They also have a responsibility before producing/buying items to make sure it’s not stolen work.
Claire’s Accessories Necklace:
Claire’s have been in trouble for this before when they stole a necklace design from small jewellery business Tatty Devine. It’s not ok!!
Please do not buy this necklace from Claire’s, share this information and support small designers and artists.
