About Tatty Devine
Hello, we're Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden. We’ve been designing and making jewellery since 1999.
Tatty Devine is a totally independent British company designing and micro-manufacturing original jewellery in the UK. Our standout designs are all about expressing yourself in a fun and distinctive way. We are Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden, and we met at art school then founded Tatty Devine together in 1999. We continue to run things from a studio in London’s East End, where it all started. We like to make jewellery that blurs the boundaries between art, fashion and culture.
We create original designs from scratch, and almost all of our jewellery is made by hand in Tatty Devine's own workshops in London and Kent. Our jewellery is colourful, confident, and has something to say. Anybody can wear Tatty Devine, and we take inspiration from everywhere. We believe life - and jewellery - should be fun!
There are two Tatty Devine stores, on Brick Lane and Monmouth Street, and concessions in the London Oxford Street, Manchester Trafford and Birmingham branches of Selfridges. The Brick Lane store was one of the first ever fashion boutiques on London's Brick Lane, opening in 2001. Time Out London recently named it "Best Small and Beautiful Shop" and the public voted it one of the "Best for Women's Fashion" in The Telegraph's 'Best Small Shops in Britain' awards. The Monmouth Street store includes an in-store lasercutting machine - pop in to get your Name Necklace Now. The Guardian named this store one of the "Ten best shops in west London".
There are also around 300 Tatty Devine stockists worldwide. We choose our stockists carefully, and think they are all worth visiting in their own right. Find your nearest here.
Harriet and Rosie first met on Chelsea School Of Art's Fine Art degree course. We found some bags of leather samples on the street one night, and after graduation we made leather wrist cuffs to sell on London's markets. We were soon selling out every week at Portobello and Spitalfields. Vogue shot our first collection for their Millennium issue, and with lots of hard work, luck and fun, we grew our business to where it is today.
Our most recognisable piece is the personalised perspex Name Necklace in 30 colours. We first made them as Christmas presents for friends, and now anyone can create a necklace with any name or word on it. Tatty Devine is the original and best! Order your Name Necklace online, or get your Name Necklace Now in our Monmouth Street store or Selfridges concessions in London, Manchester Trafford and Birmingham, where you can watch it our skilled stores team design, laser cut and hand finish it on the spot.
We're most famous for our perspex jewellery, but you'll also discover pieces made from fabric, wood, leather, veneer, enamel, and anything else that's caught our eye. We're always developing new production techniques to push our jewellery design forward.
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.
Last year we were incredibly honoured to be awarded MBEs for services to the fashion industry. We're proud to represent British design around the world and, as Tatty Devine continues to grow we stick to our principles of keeping production in the UK. Above all, we're always motivated by fun.
