Bang-Up Betty handmade jewelry, lapel pins and apparel have caught the eyes of editors across the world, published as far away as Wonder Fair in Russia and as close to home as the Arkansas Times, where Bang-Up Betty was named best Artisan for jewelry in the Arkansas Times's Best of Arkansas four years in a row. National feminist online and print publications have featured Bang-Up Betty jewelry, and local news stations have visited my studio to watch me work. Here's a look at a few of the milestones.
