In her counterclaim, she said Ms Bines failed to promote her bracelets, which were inscribed with Ms Bines’s name and inspirational quotes, on social media.

Ms Parry claims Ms Bines failed to promote her products regularly causing her suffer loss and damage over thousands of unsold customised Ashy Bines bracelets. 

Ms Parry alleges the arrangement was made 12 months ago as a way to get her brand out there.

‘It went really well, we sold a lot of product through her,’ she said.

The business owner said they then designed customised bangles for Ms Bines with her own quotes engraved. 

‘Intention was that she’d promote it throughout the year at her booty events … we got the product out and she promoted it maybe once of twice and then just dumped it like a rock,’ Ms Parry said in the three-minute video.

‘We lost a lot of money doing that and we paid the price.’
