Have you ever been served a meal that looks almost just too good to eat? Or rather, have you ever found yourself lusting over a string of glistening glass beads that look nearly good enough to eat?

The quirky young designer treads a fine line between art and craft and fashion design, creating an entire series of unconventional masterpieces out of glue, paint and clay.
“I am hungry to show the world the creations from my head”, says Betty whose current designs feature a popcorn-beaded bracelet, T-bone steak pendant and sausage, pea and potato necklace.
