All aboard! The sun was shining and excitement filled the air as we joined in the Year of the Bus Cavalcade on Regent Street yesterday. Celebrating 60 years since the creation of the iconic Routemaster, 75 years since the launch of the RT-Type bus and 100 years since the B-Type ‘Battle Bus’, Regent Street was closed to traffic and almost fifty classic London buses were on display for the public to explore… including our very own Tatty Devine bus!

We couldn’t believe our luck when the London Transport Museum lent us our very own vintage AEC Merlin bus especially for the big day. A glossy red single decker from 1969, it was perfect for hosting Bunting Necklace Workshops and a pop up shop full of Tatty Devine jewellery.

We even had our own destination blinds on board – the 15 stands for our fifteenth birthday later this year! Here’s Rosie and Harriet striking a pose together…

… and with some super cool customers, too!  Looking good, ladies!

We couldn’t wait to hop on board and take a look at all the beautiful original features. Whilst festooning our bus with red, cream and black bunting, we spotted this amazing vintage advertisement:

Of course, there couldn’t be anywhere better to showcase our London Transport Museum jewellery than on board a London Bus. Bus enthusiasts, families and Tatty Devine fans were able to take their pick from the new collection at our pop up shop:

Our bus was big news with nearly 1000 people hopping on board to say hello over the course of the day!

We were very excited to have Kent studio super stars Jenni and Megan joining us to spread the word and show off their favourite pieces from the new collection.

Store star and workshop expert Charlotte hosted Bunting Necklace Workshops and shared her jewellery making skills with our eager workshoppers.

Getting to grips with pliers takes lots of concentration but everyone soon became dab hands at piecing their Bunting Necklaces together.

Every single Bunting Necklace colour way was different! This sunny combination reminds us of days on the beach at Margate.

Tada! Karen of Did You Make That?, Katie of What Katie Does and Kate of Fabric of My Life show off their beautiful Bunting Necklaces.

We couldn’t resist exploring our way along Regent Street and taking a good look at all the buses. We fell in love with this very special Routemaster! From 1960-72, London Transport staff learnt to drive on this big green beauty. Would you like to see this on the streets of London again?

What could be cooler than a Lego bus stop? A collaboration between Transport for London, Lego, and Trueform, this playful installation consists of 100,000 bricks and took a fortnight to build.

We asked visitors to snap themselves with our bus and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #TDBus for the chance to win a London Bus Necklace. Congratulations to our winner Rachel, who shared this cute photo of herself!

Thank you to everyone who visited our bus yesterday and joined in the fun with Team Tatty. We loved meeting Tatty Devine fans old and new and getting crafty with you all. Altogether now, “Long live the London bus!”

Get your hands on the Year of the Bus jewellery collection in store and online now.

Have you heard the news? We’ve teamed up with London Transport Museum to celebrate the Year of the Bus on Sunday 22nd June. We’re taking over our very own Tatty Devine bus on Regent Street, as part of the cavalcade celebrations. Explore nearly 50 buses spanning the last century, from Horse Buses through to the very latest New Routemaster. Try your hand at making a bus stop out of Lego and catch a children’s theatre show. There’s even the chance to have a personalised message recorded by the voice of London buses, Emma Hignett! We’ll definitely be first in line…

Hop on board our very own bus to discover the new London Transport Museum collection in our pop up shop, or drop in for an extra special jewellery making workshop on board! Team Tatty will teach you the techniques and skills needed to make a colourful Bunting Necklace. Choose from a range of bright summer colours or take inspiration from the London Routemaster bus with an exclusive red, cream and black colour way.

That’s not all! Say hello to Tatty Devine founders Rosie and Harriet, shop our new collaboration and get your hands on special treats, too. We’re even giving you the chance to win our new London Bus Necklace:

Simply pop along on the day, snap a selfie with our classic London bus and tweet or Instagram it to @tattydevine with the hashtag #TDBus. We’ll announce the winner on Monday 23rd June. Fingers crossed!

It’s all happening on Sunday 22nd June from 12 – 5pm on Regent Street. Our bus will be located close to the junction of New Burlington Place, not far from Hamleys and Esprit. Book your place at one of our workshops now!

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!

Heading along to the Sample Sale? Don’t forget to show off your spoils with the hashtag #TDSampleSale on Twitter and Instagram.
