Amber Aasman began crafting jewelry from wood back in 2014 – simply because she wanted a wood pendant and couldn’t find anything she liked. She began experimenting with found wood, lichens, and epoxy resin. As she wore the handmade pieces, friends and family began asking for similar ones. Pushing her craft and expanding networks lead to the creation of Wild Blue Yonder in the spring of 2016. Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Amber’s jewelry is available in several stores, and is displayed regularly at events throughout the region.
The unique, hand made pieces are created using reclaimed materials, unused lumber scraps, or fragments of wood, bark, and lichen found on hikes and travels through the forest. Little details, often unnoticed in nature, are readily on display in the pieces. Each piece is designed to inspire its wearer with a love for nature, and all the intricacies that lie therein.
All metal findings are nickel and lead-free. Earring findings are gold-filled (which contain a much higher gold content than gold-plated findings and will last a lifetime).
