Wild Blue Yonder is a handmade jewelry company celebrating wood, the earth, and adventure in the Canadian wild. All products are made by Amber Aasman, the owner and artisan behind this brand. Often using reclaimed materials or found wood on hikes and travels through the forest, her pieces are designed to inspire its wearer with a love for nature, and the intricacies that lie therein.
All metal findings are nickel and lead-free. Earring findings are always gold-filled (which contain a much higher gold content than gold-plated findings, and will last a lifetime).
