About WHD

Whitney Haynes is a Jewelry Designer and Silversmith based out of Kingston, Ontario. Primarily self-taught, Haynes pursued her interest in becoming a maker while simultaneously working as a consumer product developer and buyer in Toronto. With a large leap of faith she, and her husband, moved their family to Kingston where she began to focus on her jewelry making full time. 

 

7 years later, Whitney Haynes Designs is thriving. Kingston has embraced her, and there she has a strong local following allowing Haynes to perpetually experiment and continue the growth of her line.

 

The work speaks strongly of its Canadian maker’s rural history, framing natural elements of birch bark and leather with sleek silver and resin accents. It is this connection to Canada that drives Haynes to source locally, nationally, and ethically; forever aiming to give her work an authentic and approachable identity.

 

Where to Find Me

Whitney Haynes Designs is a home based operation that uses an online store instead of a brick and mortar storefront. Although we love our little shop, we understand that sometimes you have to physically feel something before you can truly understand it. Because of that Whitney and her team travel throughout Southern Ontario to many Craft Shows and Pop-ups. Click below to see our upcoming schedule!
