Against The Grain
This necklace makes us almost as happy as the blog from whence it came (ashleyweber.blogspot.com).
The blogs that make us happy are often blogs that make us want to spend some serious dough.
Local silversmith and jeweler, Ashley Weber, keeps us reaching into our pockets (or, at the very least, fantasizing about it) as she posts her latest creations on her Against the Grain blog.
Weber lives in the Valley and has been making jewelry since she was a teenager. Largely self-taught, she's also learned to refine her techniques through classes at Mesa Arts Center. She now teaches classes there.
Her blog not only features her latest work but also keeps us up to date about new local boutiques, home decorating projects, and other artsy lifestyle stuff.
And we can't get over this adorable flying kite necklace.
Of course, there's more where that came from on Weber's Etsy.com site.
Oh, and the girl's got another Etsy.com site that sells vintage items.
