For more than 30 years, our Israeli designer, Avi Soffer, has been creating unique, eye-catching works of wearable art. For these striking Smokey quartz earrings, our artisan joins faceted quartz with sterling silver that is shaped into an elegant spiral design. As an apprentice to jewelry makers in Israel and Denmark, Avi developed a decidedly international perspective on design—and life. Throughout his career, he has used and shared his talents to help others, mentoring new artisans as well as employing people with disabilities in his workshop. An avid supporter of human rights causes, he participates in empowerment programs for Arab women in Israel, and volunteers at a refugee center for African women in Tel Aviv, bringing the same passion to helping his community as he does to jewelry design. Our Smokey quartz earrings are masterfully handcrafted exclusively for Uno Ala Volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans. No two are exactly alike. Earrings measure approx. 2 in. long, wires.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
