@tksjewelry: You can copyright a piece of art. If you do a google search, many, many results will come up, but here is one I found.

The summary is that whenever you create a piece, it is automatically copyrighted to you, it is just pretty hard to prove you came up with it first if it’s not registered which this link explains how to do. 

 

Good luck!

Art, writing, logos, songs etc are automatically under copywrite. If someone copies and sells the design then you can sue them. Patenting is more for inventions, processes, less “artsy” stuff.
