PIVOT – Jewellery
ETHICAL JEWELLERY HAND-MADE IN THE UK
Pivot empowers people experiencing homelessness to pivot their lives through learning how to craft jewellery.
Our unique collections combine quality materials with hand-crafted expertise, culminating in award-winning jewellery with a powerful and emotive story
Our jewellery and packaging are made from sustainable and recycled materials, sourcing the majority of our tools and equipment from the UK.
Each piece comes in a hand stamped recycled box, with a note inside to say who made it.
In England alone there are 270,000 people living in temporary accommodation, a figure which is set to rise. Our jewellery is designed to alleviate difficulties faced by people living in these situations.
As a London Living Wage Employer, we financially and holistically support our makers through coaching and guidance on how to create swifter pathways out of temporary accommodation.
Our mission is to bring meaningful and flexible employment to those who might otherwise not have access to it, and in doing so giving them the confidence and skills they need to take steps away from temporary accommodation.
We provide unique creative training programmes for those living in UK hostels.
Co-created alongside temporary accommodation providers, our pivotal programmes are tailored to improve the experience of those living in temporary accommodation through re-engagement, an increased sense of self-worth and ultimately higher move-on rates from hostels. We do this through taking our Makers through the process of design, marketing and selling jewellery.
It is our ambition to re-frame hostels from dead-end situations to places of momentum, creativity and opportunity.
