Beautiful And Charitable : Sheffield's Hope Jewellery

Quirky charm bracelets are back in for Spring. Our very own Jaye Dry was down at the Liberty Belle Tea Party last week checking out the cute bracelets HOPE Jewellery had to offer.
Didn’t think you could save the world and look fabulous at the same time? Well now you can…

The brainchild of students from Enactus Sheffield, HOPE Jewellery is a social enterprise selling lovely little accessories with a heart.

This not-for-profit group works with survivors of Human Trafficking and victims of sexual and domestic abuse in South Yorkshire.

The project aims to provide these women with skills, knowledge, training and confidence so they can support themselves and their families financially in the future.

A staggering 20.9 million people are victims of human trafficking globally, meaning there are more people in slavery today than the entire 350 year slave trade.

HOPE Sheffield’s beautiful hand-crafted bracelets start from as little as £2.99 each and are an absolute must have in every style and colour.
If you’re black and gold or red and white, you can now show your support with one of HOPE’s limited edition Varsity friendship bracelets which are being sold at the Varsity Ice Hockey, and on HOPE’s website.

A selection of their products went on sale at Liberty Belle’s charity tea party last week and I just couldn’t resist taking a look.
I ended up leaving with not one, but two stunning bracelets. It wasn’t just about how great they looked on; it felt good knowing I’d helped women in South Yorkshire to get back on their feet after a really tough time.

I don’t know if it’s the ethos of the project that makes me love it so or simply that the jewellery is so delicate and unique.
Either way, I know my collection has only just begun.

Maybe you’ve bought some HOPE bracelets, or maybe you’ve even had a go at making your own jewellery – tweet us your pics @LibertyBelleMag.
