BOO! How cheering is this picture?
Sara's lovely concept of "joy snacks" yesterday reminded me of a particular snacky joy that has been gracing my red cardigan for the last few weeks. It's taken me a while to write about this adorable company, mostly because I keep forgetting what it's called and have therefore been wandering around with my brow furrowed going, "Tits? Madam?" like a deranged pervert.
TitiMadam is a wonky portmanteau of Tiina Hakala and Adam Rowe, two furniture designers who also run and design the TitaMadam range of jewellery, which incorporates lasercut perspex, walnut and metal designs in incredibly cheering shapes, and a wide variety of colours.
Knowing my fondness for all things selachian, my friend Helen gave me the blue version of their utterly gorgeous shark brooch as a late Christmas present, and so I fell in love with them.
Each item has a name, which ordinarily I'd find a bit irritating, but actually now just like. What a contrary sod I am. Here's Juan.
The only thing I find baffling is that their earrings are sold individually so you have to buy two. Maybe they get a lot of pirate trade?
