For years, I was obsessed with silver jewellery. Pendants, rings, bracelets and earrings in a colour that suited my skin tone, with a price tag that suited my pocket. My jewellery box was filled with pretty items which added very little to an outfit other than sentiment. Then, I discovered Tatty Devine. Their bright cheerful plastic accessories appealed to me straight away, and I was desperate to own my first piece. One in every colour I love, to go with every outfit I own. The problem was… I couldn’t decide which to buy first!
Then Rachael bought me their Lolly Necklace for Christmas, Em bought me the Gilbert & George Gin Necklace for my birthday, and Sarah got me a Chirpy Necklace in exchange for something I sent her from one of my wardrobe clear-outs. Each piece reminds me of the woman who bought it for me, and they always draw compliments when I wear them. Before long, I’d ordered myself a Name Necklace, bought some earrings, and had snapped up a Bunting Necklace too. Every time Tatty Devine release a new collection, I spend ages scouring the site to try and decide what I’ll buy next. Sadly, I still have trouble choosing! My festive wishlist contains the gorgeous Christmas Spirit Necklace and the super-cute Enamel Gingerbread Heart Necklace, so now I’ve just got to tempt someone to buy them for me.
Despite having been around since 1999, the jewellery is all still designed by founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine and 99% of it is handmade in Tatty Devine’s workshops in London and Kent. Each of their shops is staffed by enthusiastic fans of the products, and the friendly atmosphere makes you feel like you’re part of a family as soon as you walk in. As innovative as Lea Stein and as quirky as Ciléa, Tatty Devine’s designs are already becoming classics. They’re so popular that high street brands have copied them, but the fans always know which version they prefer. We prefer individuality, attention to detail, and a care service that fixes broken plastic and replaces old chains. Tatty Devine, we salute you!
