How I almost lost control over my intellectual property

I’d like to raise your attention to something, that might happen to your design, your intellectual property and your copyright, if you trust Interweave, or Golden Peak Media* with them. Please read this, even if beading is not your hobby/profession, because this can very well apply to all publications of Golden Peak Media (beading, jewellery making, knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, patchwork, embroidery and fine arts as well), because we talk about the same publisher. My story is a lesson for everyone, the designers, who create DIY tutorials, and artisans/crafters who create art based on print or on-line media.

If you think you are involved into this, please get in touch so we can do something together to protect our copyrights. »

Ramya Flat Chenille Stitch beaded beads are simple, easy to make, but first of all wearable beaded beads. You don’t need to put any beads or pearls inside this beadwork, because it has a self-supporting structure, what gives a beautiful lacy appearance to it. This is a “no-special-bead” project, you need only Japanese Toho seed beads (size 11/0, and 15/0) and Czech fire polished beads (size 3 mm and 4 mm) to create it.

Nadia is a Flat Chenille Stitch bracelet beading tutorial. I designed the Nadia Bracelet to match the Chenille Beaded Beads. Nadia is the perfect complement to these little beads.
