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.

Red Coral shell

Sexuality – Happiness

Strengthens our grounding and gives energy, stimulates the joy of our body, and the wish for touching and being touched, arouses the passion and opens up our hearts. The Red coral is good when we lack energy and vitality; it stimulates, warms and brings colours to the surroundings.

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.

Trilogy

Pendant with The Trilogy (condor, puma/cougar, serpent) on green turquoise | InkaDesign

Pendant with The Trilogy (condor, puma/cougar, serpent) on green turquoise | InkaDesign

The Trilogy consists of the Condor at the top,
the puma/cougar in the middle and
the serpent at the bottom.

They include each some properties which you can read more about here.

By and large the number 3 is important to them; it is repeated at many places, the 3 levels at each side of the Inka Cross, the 3 worlds, the 3 kinds of consciousness, the 3 holy animals (in The Trilogy) etc.

Often you also see The hummingbird linked to The Trilogy. Even though it is not a direct element of the three/The Trilogy, it is often included, because it is also linked to the upper world and to Machu Picchu. Each of the animals is also linked to a specific corner of the world and to a specific element (Air, Water,Fire, Earth)
