About Whittney



Born and raised in Grosse Tete, Louisiana, I, a 37-year-old creative soul, launched FunFunkyFree in November 2022 as my personal canvas for creative expression. My journey of creativity has been a lifelong endeavor, from my early days of painting walls and even myself, to falling head over heels for the allure of crystals and unique beads in 2006. That year marked my initiation into the world of jewelry-making, a world I knew people would adore as much as I did. Although I found joy in this craft, it was only a taste of the exhilarating freedom I've since discovered through exploring new art mediums.

Jewelry, to me, is more than just an accessory. It's a narrative, a reflection of our inner selves that we wear outwardly for the world to see. It's the finishing touch to an outfit, offering a peek into our deepest personality traits. Adorning myself with jewelry is my favorite part of dressing up, the one aspect where there are no size restrictions, no wrong fits - only fun and self-expression. Jewelry is the icing on the cake of my outfit, the final pop of personality, and quite possibly a predictor of the kind of day I'll have.

FunFunkyFree is not just a brand name, it's an emotion, a state of being. It's what I feel when I pick out my jewelry for the day, the vibe I want to exude into the world. If I were to condense the essence of my accessories into one word, it would undoubtedly be FUNFUNKYFREE!
