Is It OK to Make Original Jewelry Using a Technique Learned from a Tutorial?
by Sharon Berg.
Would a jewelry technique learned in a free or paid online tutorial be usable in producing “original’ jewelry without the teacher’s consent?
Many of us need to learn the techniques somewhere and then use them to create original pieces.
I’m not talking about copying the specific jewelry item, but rather using the “technique” learned during the tutorial.
If it is a no-no, then how can we use anything we learn via tutorials or books or whatever… especially when there are only so many techniques to go around?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
