DESIGNERS + INSPIRERS :: WITNEY CARSON
We teamed up with four fashionistas who are using their platforms, careers, and lifestyles to inspire women globally. They’re not only rockstars at their day jobs, but their stories and talents have inspired us to chase our dreams, live outside our comfort zone, and make the world a better place. They each designed a piece of jewelry for 31 Bits as a reflection of their stories, creativity and personal style.
MEET WITNEY CARSON
Witney is best known for her amazing performances as a dancer, professional partner and choreographer on Dancing with the Stars. Originally from Utah, Witney is married to the love of her life Carson, and is “mamma” to the cutest little pup named Roxy. A lover of all things dance, she has teamed up with some incredible partners over her eight seasons on the show, and is currently battling for #1 with her “Malcolm In The Middle” partner, Frankie Muniz! (Anyone catch their INSANE Halloween performance?!) Witney has a love for life that is infectious and inspiring… And that is exactly why we are SO thrilled to be teaming up with her!
In a few sentences, tell us a little bit about YOU!
This is hard! I enjoy long walks on the beach… jk! Lol but I do!
I’m silly and say all the wrong things, I love food (peanut butter m&m’s are my weakness), I have the most amazing hubby going on almost two years! I have a puppy named Roxy and she’s my child… It’s not healthy I’m sure. I love to dance, but y’all already knew that!
What does this project mean for you?
I love this project because I feel like it is so important for women to use their God-given talents for good. 31 Bits represents that and I just feel honored to be a part of it!
Describe your necklace, why you chose this style, and what you’d pair it with!
It embodies what I do and who I am. The stars represent my dream of being on DWTS and finding my purpose through my talent!
(Side note: Witney also designed this horn necklace!)
What is your favorite thing about 31 Bits?
What I love about 31 Bits is their drive to help others to be successful and live out their dreams through their talents and abilities. It’s something you don’t see very often and I think this company is so much more than just pretty jewelry. It’s helping those in need, and I love that!
Describe your style:
My style is a little bit all over the place! Haha But I love to be comfy, whether it’s a t-shirt and jeans with a cool jacket or just sweats and a sweatshirt.
What are your daily fitness/health regimens?
I love to run and get out in nature! It’s therapeutic for me! I always try to keep hydrated and bring healthy snacks to work so I can fuel my body to get through the day!
This is your eighth season of Dancing With the Stars! Is it challenging connecting with each new dance partner? Who’s been your favorite thus far?
I’ve been fortunate enough to have great partners – each of them brought so many great things in the partnership and I simply can’t pick just one!
What’s next for you?
I’m working on a few things that will come out next year, but for now I’m dancing away on this season and going on tour this winter with the DWTS cast! Which I can’t wait for!!
