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. She is seeking punitive damages and a permanent injunction that disallows Hirst from copying her designs.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
