whatnotz is an island inspired jewelry brand based in Barbados that carries a sense of nostalgia and belonging, creating an impermanent sense of home in each piece.
Founded by Stephanie, a Montreal city girl who decided to give up the much loved city culture & not- so-loved harsh winters for sunny Barbados, a small island in the Caribbean.
After many years in the Canadian Fashion Industry along with coming from a family of entrepreneurs, Steph launched whatnotz - a classic keepsake with a modern twist that tells a story, no matter where you are in the world.
whatnotz is classic, whatnotz is timeless - with attention to detail that evokes a memory, a feeling, an emotion of somewhere special to you.
Steph saw a need for a cool, modern, different keepsake that wasn't your standard 'Barbados souvenir' - after many brainstorming sessions & sampling, she launched her first collection, The Barbados Collection, which continues to grow each season with new designs.
Since then, Steph has designed collections for Montreal, Trinidad & Tobago & Israel - with more on their way!
You can now shop all the collections online with International Shipping or at select retailers locally, see our Stockists Page for more info!
Handmade with love, we hope you treasure your whatnotz as much as we do.
We will warn you, it's been made aware that after wearing your whatnotz for some time, you'll feel naked without it.
