Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden
"We like to make jewelry that blurs the boundaries between art, fashion and culture." That what Art & Fashion Salon is all about and why I couldn't wait to meet them in person. I was also thrilled to meet Sonja Todd, Tatty Devine Marketing Manager, getting a bit of insight to the ladies plans for the big apple!
Buy the book! "How To Make Jewelry" out now. See below for all the details and join the upcoming workshop this Wednesday!
Do you love buying totally unique pieces from The House of Field as I do? Then here you go. The pieces are all original designs from scratch, and almost all of their jewellery is made by hand in Tatty Devine's own workshops in London and Kent. The pieces are colourful, confident, and have something to say. Anybody can wear Tatty Devine, they take inspiration from everywhere and believe life - and jewelry - should be fun!
There are two Tatty Devine stores in the UK, or you can purchase online, but word is a location will be opening in Williamsburg, Brooklyn this year! There are also around 300 Tatty Devine stockists worldwide. Find your nearest here.
Tatty Devines' most recognisable pieces are the personalised perspex Name Necklace in 30 colors. Anyone can create a necklace with any name or word on it, as I plan to, with, you guessed it, a little skull charm affixed to it. They are most famous for our perspex jewelry, but you'll also discover pieces made from fabric, wood, leather, veneer and enamel.
"We love to collaborate with other creative people, especially in art, music or fashion. We've worked with avant-garde girl group Chicks on Speed, British fashion designers like Louise Gray and Peter Jensen, artists including Rob Ryan and Gilbert & George, and we've also produced exclusive pieces for Tate, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Selfridges."Who loves Tatty Devine?
