Yes, I know, Lody...I didn't mean confusion on either Deb or you...I meant in that the design was not mine. This post is so old from like January and had forgotten all about cus I never heard anything else so I wanted to make that clarification so as to not confuse the people that were asking for it. I actually thought I had posted that what I had was called something else and that is why I clarified it.

Hey Beverly, glad to see you here. I've lurked at your blog last night for quite a while and enjoyed your fabulous creations.
Lina, I understand what you mean... and your helping nature. A lot of times, we tend to get excited when we know we can help somebody. :)
I'm touchy when it comes to copyright coz I had a terrible experience last year from a stitcher who shared my "original" finishing instructions (with photos) on her blog, just few days after my design was published on a magazine. I didn't found out about it 'til a month later when another stitcher emailed me and gave me the link. The other sad part is, the violator never mentioned me as the designer/finisher... therefore, other stitchers who visit her blog thinks it was her original creation. I, of course, had to leave a comment (very nicely), by simply saying "Thank you for stitching that piece, it's one of my original work".. that's it! As guilty as she was, she emailed me back saying she doesn't understand what I wrote in the comment section coz she can only speak Spanish... though some comments in there are English. I was still nice to her (w/o even mentioning to remove the copyrighted instructions yet), when I gave her the "Google Translator" website so she can translate what I wrote, or ask one of her friends who can understand English to translate it for her... Then I explained to her my stand about copyright... that things like that from the magazine doesn't have to be shared on a blog where everybody can get it for free... that I will remain the copyright holder of that original design. To cut the story short, she removed the PDF file of my creation there after few emails, but she started blogging (bad things mind you... LOL) about me... That she purchased the magazine and can do whatever she wants with it coz she OWNS the magazine... That she can share any pattern from that magazine... That she will never buy or stitch any of my embroidery patterns again... That good and new creations like mine should be shared for free so many stitchers can enjoy how to do that kind of finishing... BLAH BLAH BLAH. Still, I'm glad that many of my loyal customers (specially those in US and France) who enjoy my creations, serve as my online police most of the time. LOL
Sorry that the topic was side-tracked...
I certainly know what you mean, Lody and you are right.... I like to create a lot of peyote patterns which they teach at my lbs and I teach as well. I let them know up front that they can share it, but that they let people know where they got it from. You never know if it works or not though. I can't believe she would write anything bad...that is awful!!!! I like to share instructions on my website but only share those from anyone who wants to give it to me to share with the viewers. I would never put someone else's works instructions there...I would put their link but to blatanly do that without permission...heck no. I often say that if you just ask the designers...9 out of 10 will tell you go on ahead just make sure you give me the credit. And you didn't side track this topic...I think it is a good thing for people to know these things because I think sometimes, we are all caught up in that copyright issue when we aren't the designers who others are infringing on.
Oh my gosh, really, I have a beading magazine at my house that has the picture and details in it. Its just peyote stitch with diferent sizes of beads.
Hope you all have a great day
I would really like this pattern thank you you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I haven't a site for the pattern, but how it is done is that you increase the size of the bead from say 11/0 to maybe a 3 or 4mm fire polished bead going by several different size leaps, then decrease them in the same order. Hope you understand my mumble jumble and this will help you.
Also it's not a good idea to post your address on the site. You are setting yourself up for a lot spam. If anyone whats to get you an e-mail they can do it without posting your e-mail address here. All they need to do is click on your profile and click on send e-mail. Unless you reply the person or person will never know your e-mail address, it is a much safer way.

What she said...
I made a bracelet with a bumpy texture (The Last Pumpkin) last year that I came up with by experimenting after I realized I had lime green beads in 4 different sizes. I'm a little bit confused as to how someone can own this when it's just peyote stitch, unless the bracelet is being copied exactly.

I believe it is what they did with the peyote stitch, increasing and decreasing the size of the beads to make the bumps. Peyote stitch is not copyright able however, the design made with the stitch is. Does that make sense?
Would you please send me the pattern for " bump in the road". Thanks. Sue
I would like the beading pattern for this bracelet. Thank you. Faith Butler
