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
