Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine are nominees for the Art, Craft & Design prize at our h100 Awards. Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden founded Tatty Devine in 1999; their unconventional approach to jewellery gaining them a cult following with all pieces still laser cut and handmade in Britain. Tatty Devine has been a bastion of East London’s creative scene for the past twenty years. Designing and selling art jewellery from their Brick Lane store/studio, the cofounders draw inspiration from art, feminism, wildlife and pop culture.
Following on from a wildly successful partnership with the Museum of London as part of celebrations around Vote100, 2018 has seen the launch of their charitable partnership with the Fawcett Society. Following on from this, April saw Rosie and Harriet join conceptual artist Gillian Wearing OBE at the unveiling of Millicent Fawcett's statue, the first ever sculpture of a woman to grace Westminster, also the first to be created by a woman, Wearing herself. The collection includes the bestselling Courage Calls Necklace which bears an inspirational missive taken from a speech made by Fawcett following the death of suffragette Emily Davidson.
In 2018, the Year of the Woman, Tatty Devine is an independent, female owned and run business, with two London stores and almost twenty years of design and micro-manufacturing in Britain under their belt.
