Free Me is a London based registered charity that is dedicated to women striving to achieve and maintain recovery from eating disorders and addictions through jewellery design and creation. We teach our members how to make and design jewellery and then we sell it on our website under the fashion label of Sweet Cavanagh.
Some of the women come to Sweet Cavanagh after receiving a higher level of care, while others receive their first piece of support from the safe environment created in the workshop. Located in Notting Hill, Sweet Cavanagh’s doors are open to all women who are dedicated to recovery. Unfortunately, treatment in the UK is limited and private providers are extraordinarily expensive. At Sweet Cavanagh, women are able to take advantage of free support groups, led by a highly trained social worker. Additionally, clients are also connected with a registered dietician who does both group and individual work free of charge to the ladies.
These groups help to enhance the therapeutic value that is provided by the jewellery making process. In fact, research has proven that jewellery making can augment one’s well being by increasing one’s self esteem and reducing stress and anxiety; all of which can reduce one’s risk of relapse. Seeing their pieces sold on our website and other retail and online shops further augments the women’s feelings of self worth and confidence.
Just like the women who crafted it, Sweet Cavanagh jewellery is bold and beautiful. Each piece is designed and handmade in London’s Notting Hill, using a mixture of semi precious stones, metals and glass. We also have a fine jewellery line, which uses gold and silver filled chains and findings that will never tarnish. Items are rarely produced in numbers larger than two or three, making each piece a rare treasure.
