These earrings were named after Ekşi Höyük, a neolithic archeological site in Turkey where bone needles and stone spindle whorls were found dating back to 8,600 years ago!
The Unknown Hands Collection pays homage to ancient hand tools used in the textile production process, from spinning thread to weaving cloth to sewing. By drawing inspiration from these forms, I hope to contribute to the elevation and celebration of textile crafts which have historically been performed by anonymous women, and honor the centuries of labor and ingenuity of all the unknown hands whose work was vital to the advancement of civilization.
