Jewelry Inspired by The Hunger Games

Apr 6, 2012

 Any Hunger Games fans out there? The throngs of tweens that are flocking to theaters right now aren't the only ones who are excited about this pop-culture phenomenon--jewelry makers all over are creating designs inspired by this story (and they are selling like hotcakes on Etsy!). Given the Hunger Games craze that is sweeping the nation, I thought I would assemble a handful of my favorites below...

I also want to take this opportunity to remind you that we are now accepting entries for Bead Star 2012! Check out our Official Contest Rules and then upload photos of your designs before the April 27th deadline. And to all of the Bead Star 2012 hopefuls: "May the odds be ever in your favor!"

I hate to say it, but the top left item is a $5 pin sold at bookstores, Walmart, etc. Adding a chain doesn't make it worthy of comment - the "artist" is basically a reseller.

What a load of rubbish...who would want to wear such junk!! I am disappointed to see what I think is a con, just hang onto the coat tails of someone else's work and  copy  and sell. Where is the originality and hand work in that? ...it's just a a way to avoid copyright payments.

The first book held promise, the second book didn't live up to it's promise and the third book was a total failure....moan, moan, poor me, paint me and let me fail, dress me up and let me fail again...kill off the decent characters and then tell me I'm wonderful...and sell sell sell...let's make lots of money...it's all just sad.

So very strange to see a magazine encouraging an unlawful behavior. How would you feel if we started hacking and reselling your copyrighted materials? Etsy is a copycat nest; Etsy is created to make money for Etsy, not for its users. Being an attorney, apart from being a jeweler, I can tell you that at least 15,000 (rough figure) Etsy stores could face serious copyright, pattern, and trademark infringement charges, if their activities became known to the lawful holders.
