Altered Art Jewelry

by Robin K
(Ft. Myers, FL)

I am wanting to start making Altered Art Jewelry, specifically charm bracelets, but I need to find out what pictures, artwork, printed materials, etc that I can use without having to worry about copyrights, or legal ownership issues. Are there any books or websites that may have this information? For example, if I want to use a magazine cover as a miniature on a bracelet, do I need "permission" or is is it fair game?

Altered Art Question: Using Images Legally
by: Christine

Hi Robin,
I wrote a detailed answer that was just too darn long to fit into a comment.

(I tried but it wouldn't let me write that much, darnit!)

So I wrote a blog post answering your question. You can view it here: Altered Art Images ~ How to Legally Use Other People's Images
