Betty Pepper's Book Keeping Jewelry

I adore Betty Pepper's Book Keeping jewelry! She makes use of, of course, old books ... and fabrics, buttons, and thread. And she comes up with beautiful tactile works of art!

She says: "The ways in which time changes and decays objects interests me greatly and I like the notion that all things are ephemeral and constantly in a state of deterioration. My work often deals with stories from the dim and distant past. This is why I choose to work with faded colours. I like the way they look as if they have lived a little."
