About OmiWoods

Sales 2,021
On Etsy since 2011


Omi Woods jewelry are contemporary heirlooms that celebrate our connections to Africa and her diaspora. Our jewelry is individually and ethically handmade with fair-trade African gold and globally sourced conflict-free fine metals. Omi Woods jewelry is intended to be worn everyday, gifted for special occasions and passed down to future generations so its meaning can live on for generations to come.

We believe in paying people fairly for their resources, time and labour. Our solid gold jewelry is now made with fair-trade African gold. The gold is sourced from small-scale artisanal mines that support the well-being of miners and their communities by paying miners a fair wage and contributing to improved health care, education, safety and living conditions on the continent.

Omi means 'water' in the Yoruba language. Together with Woods it pays tribute to founder Ashley Alexis McFarlane's Jamaican-Ashanti-Maroon heritage; the word Jamaica derives from the indigenous Taino word 'Xaymaca', meaning 'land of wood and water'.

People have passed jewelry down through generations since time immemorial as a means to secure heritage, values, cultural beliefs, wealth, memories, and freedom.

When founder Ashley Alexis McFarlane’s Grandmother Doreen Salmon transitioned into the realm of the ancestors she passed down the few pieces of jewelry she had to her, her mother, and her aunties.

"My Grandmother is the reason I started making jewelry and why Omi Woods is centred around heirloom heritage pieces. Her name means shalom in Hebrew and sälam in Ethiopian-Semitic languages. It translates to peace primarily, but also harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare, and tranquility. I reflect on these things as I learn about the cultures and histories Omi Woods pieces are inspired by." - McFarlane

As a way to honour her legacy, Omi Woods donates a portion of sales to a local or global non-profit, social organization, charity or cause each year.
