Tatty Divine

so, instead of annotating my print out of Euripides' "The Trojan Women" for my imminent drama exam, i'm salivating over Rob Ryan's collaboration with Tatty Devine. i remember in high school, my friend hope and i used to fantasise about Tatty Devine jewellery and when my sister lived near Brick Lane last year, i visited their shop for the first time and brought her back a brooch, shaped like an envelope addressed back to them.

there are six beautiful limited edition pieces in the Rob Ryan collection, which i could probably never wear (even if i could afford them) because their messages seem too intimate to wear around your neck or pinned to your chest. pairs of birds, a heart that lists what it loves and an eye weeping tears that tell a little tale...they're like little love notes, secret whispers that i feel like i shouldn't hear.

"we must have cried
every type of tear
tears of joy
cold jealous tears
hot tears of fun
i even cried whilst
writing these words
but they were all good
every single one
little drops of me and you"

look here to see them for yourself; make sure you visit the rest of the site, and check out the sale. bees and bowties and kisses galore, at a much more student-friendly price. kind of.

UPDATE: see here and here for more ryan talent; blatant new found favourites.

oh they really are lovely. I don't know whether I would wear them either, I think they would hang someone proudly in my room!

just beautiful. i see what you mean about not thinking you could actually wear them. they seem like treasures you keep squirrelled away for when you need them most.

I love the birds. I am not sure I would wear it either, though. There are some things one absolutely adores and craves that one would most probably never wear.

P.S. I had forgotten to link you, and I feel terrible. I had no idea why, I realized it when I kept searching for you in my blogroll, and couldn't find you. Damage fixed now!!


done :-) Thanks a lot for lovely comment!
