Pure Silver

The silver jewellery before polishing, crystals and corals

The silver jewellery before polishing, crystals and corals

950 Sterling Silver

All InkaDesigns’ jewellery are made of pure peruvian silver and are handmade by well-known silversmiths / artisans in Cusco, Peru. The silver level is 950 (95%) Sterling Silver, and each piece of jewellery is provided with a silver stamp.

Even though the price for silver is increasing far too quick, I have, however, succeeded in making a fine agreement with both Senorita Mercedes and her family at the workshop in Cusco, Peru and with Senorita Angelica. All jewellery are stamped 950 (Sterling Silver).

An in order to be quite certain, the jewellery have been acid tested here in Denmark and it is silver all the way through.

Symbol

Inka Cross

Geometry of the Inka Cross

Geometry of the Inka Cross

The Inka Cross or Chakana is a strong symbol of the old cultures of the Andes and is considered the most complete, holy, geometric design of the Inkas. This symbol is often found in old places and holy centers in the Andes in Peru and in Bolivia.

The Chakana has had, and still has, a considerable meaning to the Inkas and it also represents many meanings in its design.

Each of the 12 steps have a meaning:
  • One of the sides signifies Future, Present and Past. Another interpretation is Munay for love and force; Yachay for wisdom, and Llankay for work.
  • Another for Hana Pacha - Heaven. The Upper World, Kay Pacha –The Earth. This World, Uqha Pacha –The Underworld.
  • A third for Peace or Upper Consciousness, War or (day)consciousness, Intelligence or sub/unconsciousness
  • The last one stands for the holy animals: Condor/Eagle, Cougar/Puma, Serpent
The 4 sides:
  • North: The element of Air, to know
  • West: The element of Earth, to wish
  • South: The element of Fire, to dare
  • East: The element of Water, to be silent
  • The four big stars of the Southern Cross
Top, Bottom, Center:
  • The top stands for Wiracocha/God and the bottom for Pachamama/Mother Earth.
  • Center / “hole”: represents the Inkan capital Cusco, the center for the Inkan Empire or the people who lived in the middle of the 3 lives, in the middle of the 4 elements and in the middle of the Universe, a Gate between the various levels.

Tumi (medicine man)

Tumi, the medicine man brings good luck | InkaDesign

Tumi, the medicine man brings good luck | InkaDesign

The Tumi is also called the “Medicine Man”; and it is also a ceremonial Inkan offering knife.

Sitting on a piece of jewellery or hanging on a wall, the Tumi means good luck.

The head of the Tumi represents Wiracocha, The Inkan God.

One of the most important surgical used instrument in ancient Peru during the Inka Empire was the “Tumi”, a knife made of an alloy of copper, called “Champi”, which is considered as being a symbol of Peruvian medicine.

At present, the Tumi is Perus national symbol, but was to a large extent used by the sun adoring cultures like the Inkas and the pre-Inkas who flourished in ancient Peru.

With a characteristic semicircular sword made of a gold alloy, bronze, copper or a silver alloy. In the Inkan dynasty it was used by the high priest to offer up a llama at the Inty Raymi festival.

First of all the Tumi is a symbol of good luck. Many Peruvian homes have a large specimen hanging on the wall in the sitting room – in order to take care of their homes.
