Here's the linkage to the independent jewellery designer who posted a blog entry on her site after discovering several of her designs have been copied by high street retailer Claire's Accessories, and manufactured in China for sale in British shops.
Looking at the pictures you have to wonder at the brass neck of Claire's.
