Against the Grain
If you followed our 2014 Big Brain finalists, frequent Frances and Bunky Boutique, or surf the online shops of Etsy, chances are you already know Ashley Weber's jewelry line, against the grain. The Tempe-based artist single handedly designs, builds, and sells original jewelry pieces that steer clear of the beaten path -- or trail rather. Weber draws her inspiration from nature with delicate earthy pieces that feature metal bangles, turquoise beads, and subtle inscriptions, including this pair of dangling turquoise beaded earring (pictured above) priced at $115.
