“I know I’m quiche…don’t be jeal. It doesn’t suit you.”

Ah, Ja’mie King. Ever since we discovered Summer Heights High, we’ve been big fans of Australian comedian Chris Lilley and the exploits of his character, Ja’mie. Our Covent Garden store star Katie just had to make a Name Necklace in tribute to her infamous catchphrase (yes, it’s spread through Tatty Devine HQ like wildfire!) Amazingly, Chris spotted a snap of her Name Necklace on Instagram and shared it with his followers… all 162,000 of them! Thanks, Chris!

“Tickets, please!” Sixty years ago, the classic red Routemaster bus was revealed for the very first time and instantly became a London icon. We’ve teamed up with London Transport Museum to celebrate the Year of the Bus with an exclusive jewellery collection. Sadly, it’s top secret until the launch in June, but we just had to give you a sneaky peek at one of the key pieces from the collection…

Inspired by bus destination boards, we’ve recreated locations that are close to our heart as necklaces and brooches. Shoreditch is very special as it’s the home of our original Brick Lane store – where Tatty Devine first began!

Fancy showing off your neighbourhood pride? Here’s where you come in! Whether you’re a Bow belle or a Brixton babe, we want you to put forward the case for your favourite place in London and you could see it become a part of the collection. Together with London Transport Museum, we’ll pick a winning location and turn it into a destination board inspired necklace and brooch, which will go on sale at Tatty Devine and the London Transport Museum.

To enter, simply share your top London destination in the comments below. Get creative and tell us why it’s your favourite place in 300 words or less.

One lucky winner will win the necklace and brooch featuring their chosen destination and four adult tickets to the London Transport Museum. Well, where better to show off your new jewellery? Get thinking – the competition closes at midnight on 20th April. Good luck!

Happy Mother’s Day! Today, we’re taking time out to celebrate the ladies who made us who we are today. Join us as we meet the Team Tatty mums…

Lusea says, “I’m not sure what I can say about my mum. She’s really cool – she is my idol.  She’s crazy, colourful, beautiful and amazing.  She taught me how to make jewellery and used to own a gallery before I was born, so I’ve been around jewellery, beads and making my whole life.

I could tell you about the time she kicked a hedgehog (by accident), or about the time she ran over two pigeons (by accident) or the time she fell off the back of a toboggan and flashed everyone her underwear, or how she screams, jumps and shouts at the characters in the cinema, or how she tries to set me up with anyone that says hi to me, or when we drove back from Ikea with shelving stuck out the sunroof in the pouring rain and got drenched but laughed the whole way home!

All in all its fair to say she is pretty cool, and always supports me in whatever I do. Her tag line is ‘I’m a terrible mother’! She isn’t a traditional mum and I love her for it, so thanks Muma!”

Web queen Zoe couldn’t resist revealing her mum’s amazing sweater to the world…

This is my mum, affectionally referred to as The Jude, JuJu, Moo or Mummy Fay. Along the years she’s kindly passed on to me all her worst traits; procrastination, having a conversation that involves at least 3 different stories at once and as this photo attests, terrible taste in jumpers. In spite of all our shared flaws, I love her very much and although I won’t see her this Mother’s Day she’ll be getting a cheeky card with a mildly offensive message, and if she’s been very good she might even get a Forget-Me-Not Flower Necklace.”

Marketing Manager Brenna shared this snap of her fashion forward Mum and herself on a beach outing. Just look at that raincoat and home made bobble hat!

Production Assistant Caroline shared this snap of her stylish mum: “All I can say is: she’s the best!”

Our Manchester Store Supervisor Emma transported us back to the 1990s with this adorable photo of her grandma, twin and older brother.

Who could this little angel be? It’s only our Creative Director Harriet’s mum! You can read all about Ann and her adventures as a couture dress maker in this very special blog.

Hanni is not only our Brick Lane store star, she’s a stylist too. It looks like fashion runs in the family in this ultra-hip photo of her mama enjoying a shopping day in Brighton.

Thank you for sharing your photos, Team Tatty! We hope you all have a wonderful day with your favourite lady. Don’t forget to tell us all about your amazing mum in the comments below, too!

This weekend, our Brick Lane store played host to a very special event. Tatty Devine co-founder Harriet Vine joined an eager group of Tatty Devine customers to lead them in their first Bunting Necklace Workshop. Well, who could be better to share our jewellery making secrets than our Creative Director?

The morning got off to an excellent start, with each guest greeted with a glass of bubbly, fresh fruit and delicious pastries (we had to try one, purely for research purposes, you understand!) Just in case anyone needed a little design inspiration, there were plenty of Bunting Necklaces on hand:

Before we began, Harriet shared the story behind the original Bunting Necklace that featured in our Spring Summer 2000 collection. Inspired by her desire to dress as a traditional village fete, the triangles were cut by hand from fabric and attached to twine to create a miniature version of a British classic. Excited by their creation, Rosie and Harriet headed to Southend and took photographs of themselves wearing the jewellery on the beach – it was Tatty Devine’s first real photo shoot!

The first step was choosing a colour theme for the Bunting Necklace. It was a little tricky, especially as we gave our guests a choice of glitter, pastel and bright Perspex pieces:

Next, Harriet schooled our guests in getting to grips with their pliers and the art of opening and closing jump rings. Our talented jewellery makers were on hand to make sure everyone picked up the technique (and they did!):

Full speed ahead! Armed with newfound plier skills, our workshoppers began piecing together their bunting:

Ta-da! Just look at that bold and bright rainbow design:

After the workshop, there was plenty of time for our workshoppers to use their 20% discount and chat dream designs and favourite archive pieces with Harriet. They quizzed her all about some very exciting new jewellery launching soon. Ooh, la la! Harriet might even have been some sneaky hints about our Autumn Winter 2014 collection. Our lips are sealed…

Thank you all for joining us, everyone! Harriet had so much fun spending the morning with you all – and was totally blown away by each unique Bunting Necklace design. Thank you to our photographer Carys for capturing all the fun, too!

Fancy getting creative with Team Tatty? Don’t miss out our upcoming jewellery making workshops this weekend. Places are limited – book now!
