    Come Meet A New Challengette: IsabellaWhitney

    As a lover of all visual arts, Isabella's shop: isabellawhitney has beautiful jewelry and headpieces. Isabella dapples in designing, photography and writing poetry. Sour Patch Kids are her fav snack cause first they are sour, then they are sweet and keeps her going at night. Pride and Prejuidce (the movie) is Isabella's guilty pleasure because of the wonderful love story and Kiera Knightly is a great actress. She is an avid reader and a student by day and etsyian by night!

    Like myself, Project Runway can always get Isabella's creative juices flowing into high gear. Her inspiration can come from everything and at anytime. She keeps a notebook with her to jot those things that inspire her down. A quote on inspiration from Isabella "Street corners, dark alleys, behind the couch, under the car, in between shopping lines, everywhere, the world is full of inspiration. Trash and recyclables supply major insporation for me at times... strange, i know!"

    Isabella is a huge supporter of the BCF (Batey Children's Fund) which his fund provides educational scholarships for Haitian refugees in the Dominican Republic. She donates 50% of all jewelry sales to the BCF. Having first hand experience working with some of these children, she knows how badly they need education in hope of a better future. for more info check out: http://www.bateyfund.org/ Over the summer, Isabella volunteered her time building a security wall around a Dominican Republic school and was the most rewarding expierence of her life.


    Since her birth, Isabella has been involved in creating art. In third grade she started making jewelery and hasn't stopped since. Now, Isabella paints shoes and is a self-taught sewer! In ten years, Isabella would like to be a featured Etsy shop and be wholesaling her designs.
