20 July–11 August 2019 | Lethaby Gallery

Tatty Devine’s statement jewellery is always ahead of the curve. Their jewellery tells stories and generates conversation.

Taking place 20 July – 11 August, Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine, will feature over 100 pieces from the past 20 years, from the early leather cuffs and piano belts to giant two metre versions of their ‘greatest hits’ including a lobster, their magpies and a huge banana, alongside sketchbooks, ephemera and two new films.

Tatty Devine's founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine set up a market stall in Spitalfields Market in the mid 1990’s. Their DIY, unknowingly anarchic approach resonated with an industry and public who were hungry for something different from the commercialised, mass produced products on offer. Together they challenged jewellery conventions and invested in a laser cutting machine, going on to create personality-packed jewellery much loved and still culturally relevant 20 years on.

A Tatty Devine and Crafts Council exhibition launched in collaboration with the Lethaby Gallery at Central Saint Martins.
