Got these in the mail today......and was just opening them, when I heard from one of the members of the new B'sue Boutiques Design Team.
Evidently since my beerings video a few have wondered aloud if there could be copyright infringement issues for makers of jewelry, if they used found items like beer caps. (Actually...the makers call them 'crowns'.)
Both companies deferred to their legal departments and both said, USE 'EM! It's great advertising for US.
The only problem they would have is if you copied the logo and used it to make your own caps or crowns to bottle bogus beer. In that case, it's a big no-no that will get you in hot water.
So make beerings and beer jewelry freely!
I made some today:
This is a sweet little set of beerings and matching pendant that I made for my pal, Beanzie of The Vintage Heart (find her at both Ruby Lane and Etsy).
The caps with the B's on them are from Brooklyn Ale, that's something made in her neck of the woods and enjoyed by many. I'd never seen them before.
Of course, there are enough left to make some for ME!
And now....the cat's out of the bag. Beanz knows what is coming in the mail next week.
Meantime, you wanna make beerings?
Here are the turtleback mounts I use:
and here is a video with a HOW-TO....so go have some FUN!
