Fallen for our new fast food inspired collection? We couldn’t resist recreating some of our favourite diner classics and movie theatre favourites in Perspex, just in time for summer. From cheeseburgers to fried eggs, fries to popcorn, we’ve got it covered!

Last week, we invited some very special guests to join us for an exclusive preview at gourmet hot dog den, Dirty Bones. Well, where could be better? Sneak peeks weren’t the only thing on the menu. Our jewellery making experts were on hand to teach everyone how to make a Deluxe Fries Necklace, complete with sparkling Swarovski crystal ketchup.

We couldn’t wait to get the evening started… and neither could the Dirty Bones team! They were all decked out in tasty pieces from the collection:

The evening began as all evenings should: cocktail time! Kristabel of I Want You To Know, Carrie of Wish Wish Wish and Olivia of What Olivia Did tested Dirty Bones’ delicious creations… (We recommend the Top Dog!)

As we sipped, everyone took their first look at the new jewellery. Deluxe Ketchup Necklace and Hot Dog Necklace, anyone?

Don’t forget the popcorn, egg and chips!

Of course, we couldn’t reveal the new jewellery without the food that inspired it. Everyone tucked into Dirty Bones‘ signature hot dogs and fries, complete with homemade marshmallow and bourbon BBQ sauce. Yes, it was just as heavenly as it sounds…

After lots (and lots!) of fries, we settled down to the jewellery making. Store star and workshop expert Charlotte led our guests in how to make their very own Deluxe Fries Necklace.

Armed with everything they could possibly need to get crafty, our bloggers slowly and steadily embellished their Perspex fries with glittering Swarovski crystals for a luxurious ketchup effect.

Steady hands! Lauren of Pocket Rocket Fashion wasted no time getting to grips with the glue.

Working with tiny crystals is fiddly work so it was total concentration all round! Kristabel was a dab hand with her cocktail stick, carefully positioning each gem in the perfect place.

Ta-da! One finished Deluxe Fries Necklace! Bethany a.k.a. Arched Eyebrow couldn’t resist wearing her handiwork straight away:

You might just recognise Hanni Bow. When she’s not off styling pretty pastel shoots, she’s our Brick Lane store star!

All done! Now Carrie can keep her fries obsession close to her heart…

“Say Cheese(burger!)” Everyone proudly showed off their sparkling new Deluxe Fries Necklaces at the end of the night. It looks like Team Tatty has some serious jewellery making competition:

Thank you for joining us Bethany, Lauren, Olivia, Hanni, Kristabel and Carrie! We had an amazing evening with you all (and we’re still jealous of your encounter with Jon Snow…) Big thanks to the amazing Dirty Bones team for treating us to copious delicious cocktails and the best hot dogs in town and our photographer Carys Lavin.

Fancy making your very own Deluxe Fries Necklace? We’ve just released tickets for our next workshop. Book your place now!

Last night we headed under the sea for a Deluxe Lobster Necklace Experience with none other than Tatty Devine co-founder, Harriet Vine MBE. A dedicated band of lobster lovers splashed through the rain to our Brick Lane store and were greeted with a glass of fizz and the prettiest pink macaroons from our East End neighbours, Albion Cafe. Yes, they really were as delicious as they look…

First of all, everyone settled down for a chat with Harriet who was modelling the latest in crustacean chic, our GIANT Lobster Necklace in pink:

“It’s a bit like a lobster jigsaw right now!” Jewellery making expert Harriet led our workshoppers in the very first step – linking each pale pink lobster piece together with jump rings:

They had no problem getting to grips with the pliers and soon enough, lobsters were taking shape across the table…

Here’s Jools aka chic cycle style blogger Lady Velo double checking her lobster’s links (and wearing the Pop Star Hand Necklace from our Spring Summer 2010 collection):

“Hmmm, which colour to choose?” Choosing which sparkling Swarovski crystals to embellish our lobsters with was a hard task:

To avoid any sticky mistakes, we laid out our crystals on a special work sheet first:

Ta-da! One gem-tastic Lobster Necklace:

Claws at the ready! Our lovely workshoppers show off their finished Lobster Necklaces with Harriet:

Thank you all for getting crafty with us! We loved sharing our crustacean secrets with each and every one of you!

Headed to our Sample Sale at the Brick Lane store this weekend? Hooray! We know it can be a little overwhelming (what to choose?!) so we’re sharing our London studio staff’s top picks from our sample sale treats. Well, there’s really no one better than Team Tatty to show you what to look out for as you rummage…

Zoë says, “My top pick is the Tate Ruler Necklace from 2009. I always have to snap up collaboration pieces as they are made in such limited runs – if you miss out, you might never have the chance to own one again! Plus this miniature measuring stick is super wearable, I’m channeling a sixties art school vibe with a cream shirt and plaid pinafore, but it looks just as good with jeans and an oversized jumper.”

Chema’s top pick? The iridescent Radiance Earrings and Necklace from our Spring Summer 2013 collection.

“I just love how reflective they are! Wearing them in the summer sunshine and seeing all the different coloured reflections makes me happy.”

Brick Lane store star Hanni has her eye on the pink Bow Headband and Ravioli Link Necklace from our limited edition Eley Kishimoto collaboration in 2012.

“What can I say? I love pink! We used digital printing on Perspex for the first time in this collection, so it’s very special.”

Chloe has fallen for the Frida Necklace from our Spring Summer 2012 collection:

“She’s just an icon, isn’t she? I love the Hot House Leaves Earrings, too! I was actually working at the Botanical Gardens in Newcastle when they launched and I fell for them straight away. They make me feel like I’m in a rainforest…”

Lasercutting queen Lusea shows off her Sample Sale Pick to the GIANT Lobster Necklace in our Brick Lane store:

“I’ve got my eye on the Pegasus Necklace in silver. It’s a bit of a classic… and it goes with my (not double but) triple denim outfit today!”

Don’t worry, boys, you won’t be left out! Graphics whizz Tom snapped up a limited edition Initial Brooch:

“Well, I’m not ready for a Lobster Necklace just yet!”

Brenna teams her leopard print sweatshirt with a little treat from our Autumn Winter 2013 collection…

“I love the emerald colour of the Gem Cut Ring as it reminds me of Art Deco. I like wearing rings on every finger so it’s perfect!”

Lucy is pining after the Hot House Statement Necklace from our Spring Summer 2013 collection:

“I love anything big! I like how this necklace is really three dimensional. It’s just perfect for summer, too. What could be better than covering yourself in ladybirds, butterflies and miniature tortoises?”

Thanks, Team Tatty! We can’t wait to open our doors on Saturday!

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!
