Betty Pepper creates beautiful jewellery, enveloped and protected by books. She uses old books found in charity shops because of the fact that they have once had ownership, and contain memories as well as literary stories.
"Her work is inspired by stories, memories, things from the past, over-hearings and misgivings.
A strand of humour runs through Betty's work using word games, hidden messages and secrets. The work features 'grown-up' interests, but they are treated with a child-like attitude."
