My understanding is there is to be no home business ran from the home they live in according to the homeowner association where they live,violating that too. Also certain ppl in that household should not be spotlighting deer in the field next the home either.
There is no homeowners association where they live til all lots are sold an that could be many many years from now because they are not selling!

Jealous of cheap looking costume jewelry??? You humor me! As a matter of fact, if I lowered myself to such garbage to place on my body, I probably would go to Big Lots or Wal-Mart to purchase it because to me and my class of friends there is no difference between the trash that you and others are fighting over. Have a nice day!(0:
lady, you are probably sitting your fat ass on the couch wishing you had the money to buy the expensive items it takes to make the "TRASHY" jewelry that you can't afford to buy that we make in the knock off version...but sense you don't wear any of this class-less jewelry...mind your damned business....and get off of this forum...nosey...ass....

Wow. I can tell from these post that a lot of sabika sellers/consumers are snobby and foul. I liked the jewelry until this happened. I am appalled that grown women act this way.

Lets break this down to stupid simple shall we!
Some metal worker converts base metal into cup chain – Not Sabika – using machine something like this
Cups and spacing set by machine to customer’s specs.
Then a extender and claw are attached to form something like this.
In the finish of anyone’s choosing no one is excluded. So far still nothing Sabika has made touched or designed. Been around for generations.
See anyone can buy and has been able to buy, before Sabika was born, an empty necklace shell as ready made product – Just as Sabika buys from many vendors, Sabika does not makes this either.
I guess Sabika makes the stones, sorry no they don’t.
Again anyone can buy all the colors above to put in the empty shell. Might someone buy the same colors that Sabika puts is a shell? Of course they might. Guess since Ford has red, white and blue cars no one else can. Get real.
Now that anyone has the pieces to make a choker necklace it is time to be like Sabika and assemble them. Yes this takes skill, tools and knowledge. It truly is an art when done right. Quality Sabika once had and chose to replace with profit. I guess Sabika is saying they copyrighted the knowledge. That is not copyright-able. Maybe it is they are copyrighting selling any items assembled from parts one does not make. Again that would not work because everyone sub-contracts or buy from vendors.
So really want to know what Sabika thinks can happen with these lawsuits. They might scare some small time designers or craftsmen to fold. But any good judge should toss the case and Sabika out on there bums.

Who really care? You people want to argue about some cheap jewelry made out of pot metal. I have heard it all. Please go jump off the tallest building you can find or bridge and forget the the bungee cords or parachutes, because this is insane.

If you don't care then why did you spend your time reading and responding? Like my granny used to tell us as kids when she caught us making fun of somebody's clothes or make-up "Don't like it? Don't look!"

That is what is funny about you people, you post crap on here and make even dumber comments when someone reads your comments and gives a honest opinion. My opinion is this thread does not make any since, because people buy fake jewelry and complain because it is fake. If you want genuine jewelry buy at a real jewelry store. They still exist you know. Give it up morons. Fake is fake and that is all it will ever be, no matter what you call it. Grow up and stop acting like little kids.

I have attended several Goshen parties and these Christian ladies had Sabika catalogs and told all of us that they could make anything Sabika had cheaper! Honest truth here...they copy patterns and metal colors of Sabika's top selling classic and seasonal piesces...If these Goshen ladies are above board and own up to lies they have told and their friends perpetuate, I believe they should be allowed to creat their OWN pieces that do not replicate the Sabika trademarked pieces. Again, I have heard it with my own ears..."We can COPY Anything Sabika has only cheaper!" You can tell the difference in the design asthetic so let Goshen design their own...

infringement is infringement.. I can make leather purses but I cannot make coach purses, I can make levi jeans but I cannot make them. I can make anything that is produced. BUT I cannot make something that is patented...

well said...trademark infringement..
btw, Goshen doesnot use a heart on the end of the extender...the other seller does. If you read her facebook posts, she openly tells people she copies Sabika pieces...

I will say this again.....I LOVE THE FACT OF SMALL BUSINESS HERE IN WV being successful....but I do see Sabikas side of it. There are multiple pieces on their sight and fb that are identical to sabika pieces. Not only is it wrong to undercut other business but it is also wrong to claim they didn't know they did it or blame it on a set up. I say create your OWN unique pieces and go for it. Put yourself in a sabika consultants shoes is it right?? Sabika wouldn't be investing money in a lawsuit if there weren't reasons. I personally cld care less either way but if I owned a successful business and someone came in and copied it identical I wldve pissed
I have a friend who is a Sabika consultant and she owns 2 Goshen pieces. these are nothing like a Sabika piece...But these ladies DO take orders for copied pieces...they DO say negative comments about Sabika...I heard it myself..they have catalogs and COPY patterns. Create your OWN styles...Sabika consultants are independant distributors who are making a living...Goshen has cut deeply in some local consultants' pockets with their copied pieces.

Jealous bunch of people!! Get a life of your own and leave others alone. You must live in a trailer park since you're so familiar with them and with that said, there is NOTHING wrong with them. What makes you too good??? From what I hear, you're not what you appear. That's right, I know who you are!!! Your life isn't as glamorous as you pretend it is. I can't wait until all of this ends and these ladies laugh in your ugly face.

I think there is something up with the Sabika web page. I went there earlier and my antivirus program popped up a warning and then said my computer was infected with malware.

Are they trying to secretly install tracking programs on their customer's computers or was this a coincidence? Anybody else have something like that happen?
