She’s seeking punitive damages for copyright infringement.

A Canadian jewelry designer alleges that an English jeweler ripped off her designs and is suing for copyright infringement, Courthouse News Service reports. The article says that the designer, Colleen Wolstenholme, filed a complaint against Damien Hirst accusing him of copying the design of her prescription pill-inspired charm bracelets. The suit alleges that as early as 2004, Hirst began selling a silver charm bracelet that Wolstenholme claims is “identical and/or substantially” similar to her pill charm bracelet.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
