This is why you’ll love the Tatty Devine shop in London

I had heard of Tatty Devine long before I actually went into one of their shops and I’m only sorry that I didn’t discover them sooner. This jewellery company boasts big, bold designs that will make you smile.

There are two Tatty Devine shops in London, one in Brick Lane and one Covent Garden.

Tatty Devine, fun and fabulous jewellery

 

The company has been going for an impressive 20 years and started after two art school friends got together and started making jewellery. Using things like scraps of leather and guitar plectrums they began selling their pieces at Portobello and Spitalfields markets. Not long after, Vogue featured them in the magazine’s Millennium issue and Tatty Devine was born.

From jewellery pieces made from leather the founders, Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine, moved on to laser cut acrylic and began creating the fun, colourful pieces that they are known for today.

Their designs might not be for everyone – necklaces can feature anything from a giant lobster to an oversized banana – but they are packed with personality and a lot of fun.

All the jewellery is handmade in the UK and they produce two collections a year as well as a ‘Best Of’ collection, which features pieces from previous years.

They also collaborate with artists, fashion designers and pop stars on collections. Their most recent collection is based on Tove Jansson’s characters, the Moomins.

The other thing that company make are personalised name necklaces. You can choose from a variety of fonts, sizes and colours and then add a charm as well. I recently bought one for my daughter for Christmas and they really do make great presents – they’re also a unique London souvenir. Designs are usually made there and then.
