Question by Breathe18: How do I submit a necklace design?
So I have this beautiful desing for women that just popped in my head one day cuz I thought I would look beautiful with my wedding dress and because the necklace has something to do with the marine corps. I've already looked it up and NO ONE has a similar design to what I have, so my question is who should I contact and how can I get a prototype made?

Before you do anything and share the image with anyone, take some pictures of your design and all your notes and put them in an envelope. Then mail them to yourself certified mail. Don't open the envelope when it arrives.

This is called "the poor mans copywrite" and will sometimes hold up in court if someone tries to steal your idea. You take the sealed envelope into court with your pictures and design notes sealed inside and the postmark on the outside and let the judge open it. This serves to prove your original idea and when the idea was born.

I'm Dana Ward in Hollywood and this story is for Twilight fans. We just got a little bit more info on the wedding dress that Bella Swan will be wearing for the big day. Summit Entertainment just announced the designer who worked on the gown for Breaking Dawn. It's Carolina Herrera. This brand is known for a classic yet modern, feminine yet smoothly structured type of look, so a lot of people are saying they're happy about the announcement. Keep in mind that the book description details a 1920s-inspired dress, so we're thinking that the Carolina Herrera dress will be uniquely perfect for the marriage of the modern day gal to her eternal love, Robert Pattinson. I mean, who are we kidding, Kristen Stewart as Bella looks gorgeous in the Breaking Dawn Part One trailer, so we're pretty confident the dress will follow suit. Let us know what you think about this announcement by leaving a comment below. I'm Dana Ward and I'll see you next time, bye!
