Shutter Release

Shutter Release

Alice Barnes, 4 February 2021

With Valentine’s Day around the corner we’re already feeling romantic! So, to say “We sur-really love you”, we’re back with a NEW collection, get your camera at the ready… here’s Shutter Release.


Inspired by the love affairs of Lee Miller and Man Ray we’re feeling romantic with our Lovers’ Lips in shining reds, appreciating light and darkness in Rayographs and paying homage to Miller’s rule-breaking photography career. We’re celebrating a surreal kind of love with this collection.


Invented by Man Ray, Rayographs are the art of laying objects onto photographic paper and exposing it to light. Our Rayograph Print Statement Necklace is all about the contrast between light and dark.


Serve surrealism in the Lovers’ Lips Necklace. Lee Miller's iconic pout is recreated in glossy mirror and pearlescent red acrylic.


Is it a collar or is it a face? Inspired by Lee Miller's beautiful profile, the Rayograph Silhouette Collar Necklace will be a key feature in your jewellery collection.

Want to snap up one of these pieces or explore the rest of the collection? Head over to our website here.

In homage to this collection we want to set you a #MyTattyDevine challenge for February. So, for the chance to get your hands on a £50 Tatty Devine voucher we’re asking you to create your own Rayograph with your jewellery collection! Don’t worry a dark room isn’t needed, just follow our step by step guide to create your own.


Make sure you have a dark background and arrange some of your favourite pieces on there.


Get a nice close up photo, try and capture the shine!


Open your photo in Instagram and apply the Inkwell filter.


The fun part, see your photo change by playing with the brightness, contrast, highlights and shadows.


And there you have it, your digital Rayograph! Don’t forget to share on Instagram with the #MyTattyDevine!
