Maranda, of Powers Handcrafted, 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."
These earrings are named after Çayönü Tepesi, a Neolithic site in Turkey that was occupied from around 8,630 to 6,800 BCE. A small piece of woven fabric was found wrapped around an antler tool and partially fossilized. It is one of the oldest surviving textiles!
The white brass earrings with sterling silver hooks have a total drop length of 5cm.
