Young people between 16 and 25 years are most of the time seen as young apprentice or students. It takes a long time until they are allowed to have their own responsibilities and make their own way.
Garden of England Jewellery started a stall in November 2012 in Hythe, Kent to change that. A young store manager who hasn’t worked on his own before was willing to learn how to create a product, present it in a nice way, thought about the pricing and finally was given advice in how to work in marketing and PR. All this with the goal of becoming a self confident business person that is able to start a career as her own boss.

As both of them don’t get any money out of it, the Sander family thought about ways of raising money to keep the stall and their first store manager Kirsty, 22 years old. Kirsty learnt how to make jewellery from scratch, helped setting up the stall, layed out the handmade products beautifully. She served the customers, managed the financial income and came up with the idea of a workshop, especially designed for children. Kirsty has always worked with children and is now giving on her passion for arts and crafts to children every Sunday.
