Omi Woods

Omi Woods jewelry are contemporary heirlooms that celebrate all of our connections to Africa and her diaspora. Our jewelry is individually and ethically handmade with fair trade African gold and globally sourced recycled and conflict-free fine metals. Omi Woods jewelry is intended to be collected, worn everyday, gifted for special occasions and passed down to future generations so its meaning can live on for generations to come. Omi means 'water' in the Yoruba language. Together with Woods it pays tribute to founder Ashley Alexis McFarlane's Jamaican-Akan-Indigneous-Maroon heritage; the word Jamaica derives from the indigenous Taino word 'Xaymaca', meaning 'land of wood and water'.
