SELLING FINISHED JEWELRY FROM MY PATTERNS:

My policy regarding selling finished beaded jewelry products from my pattern designs is that as long as you give me designer credit (when selling on a web page, Etsy, eBay, Artfire, Facebook, craft fair or whatnot) and make each finished product yourself with your own hands, you can make and sell as many of my designs as you wish.

TEACHING POLICY

My policy regarding teaching is a bit different as I also teach others to make Jewelry and I make my own patterns and guides.

I require the following:

  • YOU CANNOT RESELL MY PATTERNS IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM (this includes free patterns) without my permission.
  • If you want to teach any of my patterns (those free or for sale), you must let me know which pattern (or patterns) and get permission (just so I know who is teaching my patterns and where).
  • When teaching a class, I DO require that each student or bead group member purchase a copy of their own unless I otherwise give permission for you to make copies with the following stipulations:
  • the copyright and my contact info stays on the bottom of each page. If you find that this info gets cut off when you print, please email me and I will email you another PDF. After the class, no additional copies may be made.
  • Please do not rename the pattern or tamper with the PDF and/or print-out.
  • Please tell students/bead group members that I have more patterns up at thealluringbeadboutique.com and in my Etsy Shop.
  • It is mandatory that I am credited as the designer on any Web sites, calendars, newsletters, fliers, etc. that announce the class (i.e., “design by Detrina Kofroth ” or “taught with permission of designer Detrina Kofroth”). [If you don’t, I will get emails from beaders, worried that a bead shop is plagiarizing my patterns so please, just do this.]

As long as these requests are met, then my patterns will always be available for others to teach at local bead shops or anywhere else for no more than the purchase price of the individual patterns.

ATTENTION LOCAL BEAD SHOP OWNERS! 
My free patterns can be taught in a class (with or without class fees) or distributed free of charge at any time in your shop, as long as my PDFs are unaltered, and all information stays on the page, especially copyright info at the bottom of the page.

I do not want my free patterns sold, however. A couple shops here in the U.S. have done so without my permission. My anger at having my copyright violated is nothing compared to the anger at buying a pattern that is available for free elsewhere. My free patterns are my way of giving back to the many beaders who have supported me over the years, as well as the local bead shops, groups and societies that do so much to keep beading alive and thriving in communities all over the world. I want my free patterns to remain free, but I also want my copyright respected. Thank you! Detrina Kofroth

PLEASE NOTE: Although I allow teaching of my patterns, the following is FORBIDDEN, as well as a blatant violation of my copyright:

  • Resale of my patterns in ANY WAY is forbidden without my permission.
  • Making and selling kits of my patterns is forbidden without my permission.
  • Making videos or instructional material of my patterns, without my explicit permission, is FORBIDDEN.
