Was gonna write a deeper piece, about how we are not our decorations, but there is something that we seem to attach to in our creations. But kinda feel you may not be interested in that.
It's possible that she just has no style of her own and is only copying you because she'd be clueless as to how to decorate otherwise
The chances of her being dangerous are too great to take the risk of not immediately distancing yourself

My sympathies!! I was a designer/artisan making Sterling Jewelry and other items for over 25 years. My partner and I traveled the world doing the wholesale markets and retail shows as well. Design thieves are everywhere and they will mass produce your designs so fast it's astonishing. It's one of the reasons I went back into one of a kind architectural sculptural ceramics and operating my own Gallery/studio.
Good Luck, I know full well how you feel about being ripped off!! I spent a fortune on attorneys sending out cease and desist letters, and they still didn't stop.
Although at first they're very giving, and take your sides in arguments, but then you start noticing, their compliments become more and more backhanded critiques
Imitation is indeed the most sincere form of flattery and from the sound of it you have yourself a superfan. Maybe this might sound overly cautious but I would pull away from that person for a while. There is a fine line between superfan and psycho stalker! If you are lucky she will latch on to somebody else

I'd love to read your deeper piece. I actually don't consider myself materialistic. I don't follow designers or trends, I just have my own unique style.
In the end we're all a sack of bones, that's true. In this moment, I would also not like to be an adult twinzie with a friend, it just makes things weird and uncomfortable. I think that is understandable.
Right? Most women do not want the exact same Jewelry as other women. It is very personal.
