DESIGN JOURNEY

THE BEAUTY OF HANDMADE

It may surprise you, at a time where mass manufacturing is prevalent, that an Australian earring brand continues to imbue warmth and authenticity in its designs through the process of producing each pair by hand.

HANDS & HEART

MEET THE DESIGNER

Hello earring lovers, I'm so glad you're here.

I'm Joni, the hands and heart behind all the pretty things you see on this website.

I draw everything myself using my trusty Apple devices and self-taught skills. I was a closeted creative for many years, but no more! I busted out and now living my best authentic life (powered by coffee).

When i'm not at home with my husband and two girls, I spend my time dreaming up new ideas, assembling earrings and packing orders from my studio warehouse in Vermont, Melbourne. If you're local, you're welcome to come and pick up your order!

HAPPY, HAND-DRAWN DESIGNS

If you're reading this page, you're my kind of person - a conscious shopper.

You are not only about the good stuff, but you want to know who makes it, where it comes from, and you want to be sure it aligns with your values.

At Wood With Words, you'll find only positive, mood-boosting designs. If I can make your day a little better with a pair of earrings, I've done my job!

Keeping production in Australia is great, but that's not all. I support and source from other small Australian businesses as much as possible for components such as quality earring hardware.
