our story

thank you for visiting woodland waves. i'm so excited to have you here. 

    my name is kali and i'm the owner and founder of this little company. when my son was around 8 months old, he started soaking his fabric pacifier clips with drool. it was a slimy, soppy mess and just plain gross. a friend of mine had a cute silicone bead clip for her daughter she had found on amazon, but when i went to look for something less pink i was left with limited options... i started researching how i could make my own and had to buy enough supplies that i could make five. i wasn't too worried, i figured i could give them away or maybe even sell them. after completing my first clip, i was in love! i shared them with my mom group and they fell in love too, they "sold out" in minutes. i started receiving custom requests, and binky beads were born.

    i opened up shop in april of 2017 as binky beads and have grown immensely since then. i have created countless color patterns and clip designs and i've helped hundreds of little ones become #happyteethingbabies. seeing your little ones happy AND teething brings so much joy in my life.

    in march of 2020, after months of debating, i bought my laser cnc. i really wanted to branch out and become more than just a teething shop. my first project was our name puzzles, and they were a huge hit! i've since started creating nursery + home decor such as name signs, paci clip holders, tiered tray sets, framed art work + much, much more.

    with these new products, binky beads just didn't encompass who we were anymore... so i set out to find a new name that did. woodland waves brings together my love of the ocean + the evergreens here in the pacific northwest. it signifies nature + all it's beauty, peace + love. exactly how i want you to feel as you bring woodland waves into your home.  

    i'm really excited that we've taken this turn towards woodworking as i have always had a passion for it. there's something about taking a blank slate and turning it into something beautiful. since adding my laser, i have also become addicted to wood working tools and have taken over our garage... so keep your eyes peeled as i learn new things + bring them to life through woodland waves!

    i am so excited to work with you! please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

    with love, kali
