“A meaningful company, accessorizing life’s journey.”
Whitney Howard Designs is an eco-friendly company that embodies this message. We create meaningful and inspirational pewter jewelry here in Los Angeles, California that represents every aspect of life’s journey. Regardless of age, gender, location or social status, every person experiences ups and downs. Every person feels. Our jewelry takes those feelings and encapsulates them; creating tangible, wearable objects that constantly remind us of the people and things we love, or the inspiration we so desperately need.
With every blessing ring, quotable cuff and promise ring we create, we make a conscious effort to put integrity first. Rather than being absorbed with ever-changing trends and fads, we remain focused on the idea of “paying it forward.” We want our inspirational jewelry to not only have a positive impact on the recipient, but on the environment as well. That’s why we only use recycled, repurposed and organic materials to make our Made-In-America jewelry. We want you to feel as good about our products as we do, and to share that positive and inspirational energy with family and friends.
Whether you are shopping for yourself or are searching for a meaning gift for someone you love, we invite you to browse our collection of lead-free pewter jewelry and find inspiration. We wholeheartedly believe that our jewelry and accessories make the perfect gift for anyone.
On special occasions, we often comb through rows and rows of greeting cards in hopes of finding the one that best expresses our feelings. Unfortunately, however, those cards often end up in the trash bin or collecting dust somewhere. With eco-friendly, purposeful jewelry from Whitney Howard Designs, your loved one can carry your sentiments with them to serve as an everyday reminder of strength, love and appreciation.
Shop by collection online or stop in to our San Fernando storefront to chat with us. We’d love the opportunity to speak with you about your own life’s journey, and to show you the types of inspirational jewelry that we feel might be the best fit for you.
At 22, I traveled, found amazing goods and met artists all over the world. I brought back art from these artists and opened a boutique. I sold imported and local goods, and I was always in search of anything that inspired people. I noticed people were in search of meaningful and uplifting gifts; my retail shop was the perfect place for me create products and see how people responded.
My first product was the Millennium Angel, and with great success I saw that something small can be very impactful to someone and I was thrilled! A few years after the Millennium Angel was the creation of Blessing Rings. For over 11 years Blessing Rings have been touching lives and I have had the great privilege to hear these stories personally. When customers call to share how receiving a Blessing Ring meant so much to them, I truly feel like I am accomplishing in life was I was intended to do. I get a huge rush anytime I place a Blessing Ring in the hand of someone I care for, appreciate or respect, and tell them that they have made a difference in my life. When I have a chance to tell people how important they are, I go for it.
I had my shop, Handle with Care, for over 15 years; these were very happy times for me. I went from running a retail shop to creating a full collection of accessories that I now sell to retailers across the globe. I do what I love, it thrills me to know I can be the artist I am, and create heartfelt objects people want to wear or gift.
When I am not designing for Whitney Howard I am also an Eco-Pop artist ( I turn cereal boxes into art!), I’m a wanna be chef, a leader of a local Green Team and Mom.
Before launching Whitney Howard Designs I was an actor who had the privilege to be in such independent films as Rancho Cucamonga, Slaves of Hollywood and the TV series Wind on Water. After acting, I was a CEO for a cool up-and-coming firm in L.A. and soon after launched Whitney Howard Designs. As a business man I saw the potential of Whitney’s designs being sold on a larger scale. It has been an extraordinary journey starting WHD. I enjoy collaborating with organizations to create custom accessories that help bring awareness to their brand; this continues to be a rewarding experience.
When I am not in the studio spin casting our hand-crafted accessories, I am out with friends and family loving what life has to offer. I enjoy giving back to organizations like Summit for Someone, volunteering at my children’s school or mentoring kids in their Venturing Programs.
I have climbed many peaks and I seek more. My bucket list includes Mt. Everest, John Muir Trail, and Camino De Santiago to name a few. When I am not with my family, I’m most happy amongst the trees and nature.
WHD creates meaningful jewelry and accessories that connect people to what is important to them through life’s journey.
