Details

Symbolizing the union of the spiritual and mortal worlds, the chakana cross originates from several pre-Hispanic cultures, including the Inca. Nancy Quispe of Peru pays homage to the chakana, handcrafting it with intricate sterling silver filigree in this pair of dangle earrings. Each cross is set with a round stone of natural chrysocolla in the center, evoking the green valleys of the Andes.

I love this ring and so are the people who see them on my finger. I am ordering a 2nd ring for my sister. The design and shape of the ring made it very unique. It is structural and yet beautiful

Preserving Traditions

Nancy took many courses to learn the art of jewelry but fell in love with filigree. The delicate curvilinear lines of this unique style of silverwork are part of the cultural heritage of Northern Peru. Filigree jewelry is worn with many traditional costumes and a Marinera may not be danced without wearing filigree earrings. Nancy teaches filigree to her employees and others who seek her out asking to learn this art.
