Well that doesnt come off as endearing in any way, just a bit hurtful. I wasnt aware that this sort of reply was warranted.
Youre entitled to feel and say whatever youd like of course....
But it doesnt say much for your character. I would love to have just had a lot of cool costume jewelry to take apart and repurpose. I dont enjoy having to verify a dead designers craft work. Its the last thing i want to spend my time on, and it wasnt my intention when i made this purchase.
I feel burdened by this if anything.
Edit: i will also add that i have destroyed two of her handmade one of a kind pieces**** to extract and test stones prior to researching where it all came from. And i am dealing with immense guilt about this as well. I have to take a second look at this stuff before i destroy anything else.
**** believed to be, not yet verified.
