Richard Bett

Festival: 2017

Since living in Belper, my work has been influenced by the Derbyshire industrial heritage. So this is a development of my work that is influenced by the Architecture of Wirksworth which follows on from work based on travelling in Portugal and France.
My recent discovery of a Victorian bottle tip has starting my fascination with the fragments of the old glass. I am using these to make a suit of jewellery based on the horse shoe weirs on the Derwent.
Just recently started training myself to pave set stones which is showing it’s self in a new range of jewellery based on the footpaths of Derbyshire.
