Sweet Notions was a Social Enterprise in the US and UK. Being entrepreneurial and socially conscious it aimed to make more than just a profit. Sweet Notions collected, upcycled and retailed fashion accessories and through the process and results create environmental and social change.
Sweet Notions Design Camps (SNDC) was a spin off project to Sweet Notions. SNDC worked with a project in Marylebone providing temporary accomodation to women at risk of homelessness. We use the accessories we couldn’t sell, and worked with designers and volunteers with a lot of heart, to teach classes on jewellery making and design. We ran for over two years and every session was an absolute blast.
