ABOUT US

Who We Are

 
As a small family owned and operated business, we are committed to quality and customer satisfaction. We have been supplying premium waterproof wood inlaid rings, watches and jewelry to customers across the globe since 2004 with a portion of each sale benefitting environmental initiatives.

 So who are we?

 

Ché Garcia CEO- Chief of Entrepreneurial Operations   

Originally from Ashland, Oregon, Ché moved to the Big Island in 2003 and found work as a carpenter. Within weeks he fell in love with the islands, its native woods and a woman who would later become his wife. It was these three events that inspired the creation of a Hawaiian Koa wood inlaid ring. Being an avid waterman and surf photographer, Ché spent a lot of time in the ocean and wanted a unique ring that was not only comfortable, water proof and durable but represented his new home, love for woodwork and his Hawaiian born wife. At the time, a durable wood inlaid ring designed for daily wear in an active lifestyle did not exist. Determined to create such a ring, Ché utilized his carpentry skills and developed the rings we offer today. Ché and his wife now spend their time back and forth between Hawai'i and Oregon, developing new jewelry pieces and raising their two young children.

 

 Tiffany Garcia CFO- Chief of Family Operations

     Tiffany was born in the small coffee farming, artist's community of Holualoa, Hawai'i. Her father is one of the original charter fisherman out of Honokohau Harbor having fished Kona's waters since the early '70's. After graduating university in California, Tiffany returned to the Big Island where she and Ché met.

 

Esmé Garcia COO- Chief Office Organizer

     Esmé was born in Waimea, Hawai'i. A close native Hawaiian friend gave her the middle name of "Kala'ikunakoa" meaning "the peace that stands among the Koa trees". Aside from days at the beach exploring for turtles, foraging through the forest for Guava and spending time at the harbor with her grandfather, Esmé enjoys "organizing" our office.

 

Roan Garcia COR- Chief Office Reorganizer

     Also born in Waimea, Hawai'i, Roan takes after his sister with the desire to "help" around the office. His specialty is the reorganization of anything previously organized by his sister. Luckily he is easily distracted by a pile of dirt, geckos or his favorite past-time, rolling Lilikoi (passion fruit) down the driveway.

 

 Isaac Garcia COF- Chief of Order Fulfillment

     Isaac, Ché's younger brother, lends a hand with filling orders, shipping and handling and various tasks associated with our mainland office in Bend, Oregon.

Redwood Drop Necklace - Rose Gold
SANDRA EDGETT (Redondo Beach, US)
Rose Gold Redwood Drop Pendant

Beautiful redwood drop pendant in rose gold - lovely redwood color in the pendant! Rose gold is a good complimentary color for this necklace. Pendant stands out nicely. Well made!

Couldn't be happier!

I thought finding something as unique and special to me as a wooden wedding ring would not only be difficult but turn up some pretty cheap and tacky results. How wrong I was. The ring I received from Woodsman is absolutely stunning and has made me look forward to my special day even more! Thank you!

Ancient Kauri Heart Necklace
Jemma (Melbourne, AU)
Amazing!

Bought as a gift for my mum who is unwell and has been unable to return to NZ in a few years, such an amazing gift!
Great quality and style. Perfect size as well, not overbearing but big enough you can see the outline of NZ perfectly!

Love the idea of using wood that had been dated

Outstanding quality and service

I brought the ancient Kauri yellow gold thin tungsten ring for my wife for our 5 year anniversary. It was easy to order and arrived in quick time. It was nicely packaged and presented and looks fantastic. Unfortunately for me I didn't get the ring size quite right however they have , for a small fee, agreed to get the right size for me. In hindsight I should have taken one of her rings into a jeweler first to make sure I did get the right fit. The ring is just perfect for a 5 yr anniversary present - we are just thrilled with it. I am not someone who generally purchases anything from overseas due to risk - however I'm so pleased I took the chance and made this purchase.
I"m very happy to recommend Woodsman Jewelry.
