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.
Seven 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.
Her work reflects her rural upbringing, framing natural elements with precious metals. She combines sterling silver, leathers, and organic stones into beautiful collections. Her connection to nature drives Haynes to source locally, nationally, and ethically; forever aiming to give her work an organic and effort-less identity.
