Have you ever seen something that was made by someone else and felt the compulsion to pretty much copy it? I know we all have and I am not immune to such a desire either. Earlier this year, I watched and shared in the joy the one of my best friends was finally getting a chance to check something off of her "Artsy Fartsy Bucket List". Monica was going to Creativation 2017 (formerly known as CHA)! I was so excited for her!
We chatted and Skyped into the late night hours over projects that needed to be made and people she was going to meet. One of the projects she came up with, she actually wore it at the show and it was brilliant.
She so brilliantly took the small butterfly from the Papillon set and made a ring out of it! As soon as I saw hers, I knew I needed to make one for me. So with her permission, I straight up copied her idea.
Okay, so it's not a direct rip on hers but still! Straight. Up. Copied the idea. We both used Iced Enamels and I sealed mine with Ice Resin while she finished hers off with some Bohemian Jewels.
I also used a fancy-shmancy ring blank I found at a craft store here on island, which now that she's seen the finished ring, I'm sure I'll have to mail her some. It's how we do things.
So you may be asking, "Why on earth is this crazy lady sharing a project she straight up copied?" The answer is simple, my friends (cue The Most Interesting Man in the World's voice). I don't always copy people's ideas, but when I do, I she's one of my BFF's and I always give due credit.
Now Monica and I can totally be #twinning it on opposite sides of the globe!
