kelly wearstler, rip-off artist

Look familiar?
It should since it is an iconic design by the
design genius 
But wait,
something is slightly off,
the proportions, the finish....
This ain't no Auböck hand-opener!
It's a fucking knock-off by 
someone old enough to know better.
Shame on you Kelly!
It's even still in production in Vienna,
so you can't use that as an excuse.
#4
if I were you,
 I would send out a cease and desist order
asap.....



 The real deal 
here at 

And Kelly,
don't even get me started on this:
Sooo lame....
Ettore
is turning over in his grave....

  3. Bravo - we need more people speaking out about this kind of blatant copyright infringement, which seems to be rampant in our culture at the moment. I hope others follow your lead.

    1. I agree! It happens too often. Sea of Shoes discovered a rip off done by Iris Apfel of a little known jewelry designer, Hanna Bernhard. Totally blatant and poorly done. http://www.seaofshoes.com/sea_of_shoes/2011/05/dissapointed.html

  4. All of her stuff looks like something you'd see in the clearance aisle at T.J. Maxx...
