So for a month over October / November i started my interning spree by working with the LOVELY ladies over at Tatty Devine
After my experience at Glastonbury Festival creating Laser cut necklaces for kids in the Kidz Field, i was taken on as a production assistant putting together their beautiful laser cut acrylic / wood jewellery.
Lots of pliers, jump rings and polywatch to make sure each piece is perfect to be sent to whoever had purchased it!
At the end of the placement as a little gift, each intern is given a free name necklace, and also got to choose a present. This is what i chose! So for my name necklace i went a bit old school and got 'Mr Lover Man' followed by 'SHABBA' on a large gold chain with gold glitter black acrylic. which i LOVE. (Anyone the knows me will know it is me in a NUTSHELL)
And as my present i chose the large caramel leopard necklace, i had had my eye on it for SO LONG. If i had a theme print it would probably be leopard print so i was SOOOOO CHUFFED when i finally got it. i now consider it my good luck charm and wear it anywhere important! (and everywhere else too!)
Whilst i was there i actually ended up buying quite a few tatty devine pieces (taking full advantage of my lovely discount whilst i was there!) A TLC inspired name necklace 'No Scrubs' and a medium parakeet necklace)
After the internship i was kindly invited to the industry preview evening to view the ss13 collection in full before it was to be launched in February this year! So exciting! I ended up spending A LOT OF MONEY pre - ordering five items from the next collection and i can't wait to get it!
They recently tweeted this sneak peak photo of the collection (and i have purchased both of these already!!!)
and then FINALLY, i was invited to the Tatty Devine christmas party! The theme was GOLD (right up my street) and was held at Bethanl Greens working mens club. The decor was FABULOUS and there were so many people (tbh most of which i didn't know) all of which looking amazzzzing in gold! ...
And santa was there giving out little Tatty Devine gifts and i got a pair of holly earrings, perfect for xmas!
It was great fun, i met some really lovely people, and after a month of work it really prepared me for working/interning in the real world outside of uni. I then went on to get another internship a week later (during the interview i wore my leopard necklace!) which i am still currently at now, and will update with soon!
