Iconic UK jewellery brand Tatty Devine has opened an exhibition of their unique collections at the University of Greenwich Galleries.
Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine includes 100 pieces of jewellery from the Tatty Devine archives as well as the story of how the brand started and their evolution over the last two decades.
Tatty Devine started out making all their jewellery pieces from laser-cut plastic, but are now branching into more sustainable alternatives including recycled acrylics, fabric, and wood.
Some of the pieces displayed in the exhibition include early leather cuffs and piano belts. Giant 2-metre versions of the brand’s best-selling pieces including a lobster are also on display, alongside sketchbooks, photographs, and two newly commissioned films.
Co-founder Rosie Wolfenden said about the exhibition: “Our archive is 6000 pieces of jewellery. It took weeks, months to decide which bits told the story and how to tell the story. I hope it will inspire young, old people and anyone really get on and make things.”
The exhibition will run until 31st March 2020 from Tuesday to Saturday, opening at 11am.
