Founded in 2017, Omi Woods creates contemporary heirloom jewelry pieces that celebrate the founder’s connection to Africa and her diaspora. Her pieces are individually and ethically handmade with fair trade African gold and globally sourced conflict-free fine metals. 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 Woods jewelry is intended to be worn every day, gifted for special occasions, and passed down to future generations so its meaning can live on for generations to come. The brand believes in paying people fairly for their resources, time, and labour.

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'.
