If you could Say Anything…
What would it be? What would it be?! For me, deciding what to get engraved on a little disc of white acrylic was a given – having a shiny thought hang around my neck was an easy choice!
Maybe you’d join Rosie and Harriet – the founders of speech bubble and name necklace makers Tatty Devine in their ‘no more page 3’ (thanks Olivia for your fab interview!) protest by having it scripted across your charm, or maybe you want to say this to someone. My personal fave though, save yourself some oxygen every time someone offers your a cuppa with this clever one! At a teeny £30 for a personalised slice of TattyDee made right before your eyes, you’d best get pondering your finest catch phrase.
Let’s get making!
1 – Write it out – Use the nifty speech bubble letter template to work out the maximum length of your phrase
2 – Watch the Tatty Devine ladies fit your phrase onto a template in Coral Draw on the computer. Don’t worry, they work to fit all the letters in whether short or long.
3 – Watch the laser cutter do it’s thaang! The process is super quick, just a quick whizz round the bubble shape then a little scrape on the surface for the letters. Next it’s time to black out your letters so you can see what it says! This is the clever bit. With a cotton bud, the girls push acrylic paint into the groves and the polish the excess off. Genius!
4 – Next, the little speech bubble gets plucked off the cutter bed once the vacuum gets turned off. The protective film is removed and a metal loop popped through the hole for the chain to thread through.
Ta da! Kristabels and my new necklaces telling each other what to think! I’m absolutely delighted with my bubble, the simple monochrome palette and cartoonesque style fits right into my wardrobe so I’ve been wearing it every day. The chain is a perfect length and there’s no better way than this to get someone looking at your boobs.
Take a look at my post below to see what I’m wearing and the finished necklace on!
