Ned Wiberg

Ned makes jewelry out of naturally found objects and hand-dyed resin. He begins by sustainably foraging the natural elements. Wasp nests and seeds are dried and some wood needs to be stabilized in a vacuum chamber. Next, they are placed into forms and hand-dyed resin poured to encase the objects. While curing, the forms are placed in a pressure pot to prevent bubbles and to give the resin a glass-like appearance. Once set, Ned draws shapes and rough cuts them, followed by sanding to fine tune. Lastly, he drills holes for the hardware and coats with a weatherproof sealant. The final product is a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.
