Out of This World Jewellery

We're delighted to offer you a chance to buy some beautiful jewellery, handmade by a group of LEH Sixth Formers, as part of a project to encourage young people to develop an enterprising mindset.

The LEH Young Enterprise team this year are currently selling their own line of astrological-themed jewellery, as the brand LunaNova. The group of 18 Lower Sixth pupils, who had come up with their idea and brand from scratch at the beginning of the year, are now in their last term of the programme and hope to be able to sell to a wider market.

Their website describes LunaNova as an affordable collection of eclectic jewellery inspired by astrology with a range of charms and unique designs suitable for all ages. “Our choice of products are personal and perfect as gifts. Our beautiful zodiac collection includes a range of dainty earrings and necklaces all personally hand-picked or made to fit your taste. We pride ourselves on providing impeccable service whilst remaining eco friendly so our packaging is sustainable unlike many other companies on the market. Whether it’s a gift for yourself or a loved one we hope you love wearing your Lunanova design as much as we love designing them.”

This year, selling opportunities have been limited: the group has had to adapt to the restrictions and cancellations as they came, resulting in a truly unique year for this Young Enterprise team. Despite this, they have managed to create a business of their own, and have had the valuable experience of being part of a team and company.

“I have learnt so much about leadership and delegating tasks, skills I would have never been able to develop without going out of my comfort zone and doing this programme,” explains Lucy Gibbons, the Managing Director of the company. The pupils have opened their own company bank account, had weekly meetings with external business advisors, and collected shares to make their idea happen.

In the Young Enterprise Competition of the Year, LunaNova won Best Presentation, and were runners up out of many entries to the Virtual Trade Stand Competition as well. Lucy and her team hope for a great end to the year of their company by sales they make in this last stretch. You can find their products here and their instagram is @lunanova.jewellery .

Young Enterprise is a national charity working directly with young people, teachers, parents and businesses and influencers to help build a successful and sustainable future. In the 2019/20 academic year, the Young Enterprise partnership of teachers, volunteers, supporters and staff engaged over 220,000 young people. Its financial education and enterprise programmes are aimed at young people of all ages from a diverse range of backgrounds, attending schools, colleges and universities across the UK.

Young Enterprise believes that the best way to learn essential life skills like money management, teamwork and communication is to put them into practice. Its programmes consist of hands-on practical learning activities designed to run in real-life contexts. The aim is to support young people to develop an enterprising mindset, increase business and financial capabilities, whilst raising aspirations and developing career goals and work readiness.
