Wood With Words is home to nostalgic, distinctly Australiana, and impressively detailed earrings and accessories. Our pieces are artistic expressions created for women who appreciate slow fashion, a connection to nature, and quality that descends from being Australian-made and designed.
The hands and heart behind Wood With Words
Hello everyone, I'm Joni and I am the designer behind every pretty little thing you see on this website.
My husband and I are raising our family in the beautiful eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Boy does life get busy with one at kinder and the other in primary school. We love our weekend coffee and babycinos and spending time at the beach whenever we can.
With so many things made 'offshore' these days, you're probably wondering where your items are coming from, and whether it aligns with your values to support us.
When you purchase from us, you're holding in your hands something that is designed and made right here in Australia. I also support and source from other small Australian businesses for components such as earring hardware, my 100% recycled paper earring cards, packaging material and so on. I believe shopping from small businesses on our own shores is a sustainable movement we can all get behind as you not only support a dream, but a family behind these businesses.
I am happiest when I lose myself in creativity. I have worn several hats over the past two decades - a language teacher, marketing manager, graphic designer, and an event stylist for 9 years. I'm proud to say that being a mum - my favourite role yet - is the inspiration behind Wood With Words. My children are a constant reminder to me that we need to be kind to each other, to spread light and positivity and to do all things with love. I hope this radiates through all that you might find in my store.
Wood With Words is an online store. I take extra special care in the photography (which I also do myself) of each item so that you see the quality and detail in the finish.
Wood With Words is also proud to run seasonal campaigns to help raise funds and awareness for organisations that serve our wildlife and the community, including Wildlife Victoria, The Salvation Army and Australian Wildlife Conservancy. Please follow us on our socials for updates.
Thank you once again for dropping by. I look forward to delighting you with my designs.
