One of the things I was most fascinated by in Peru were the layers of architecture and culture that were apparent throughout stops on our journey.

 

In Cusco, there is a distinct line in the stonework of what is now the Church of Santo Domingo (originally the Inca temple Coricancha). The bottom layer are stones the Incas made to build their temple and the top layer is that of the Spanish after their conquest in the 16th century.

While it is sad to see one culture consumed by another, it is incredible to see what was built on those foundations. Those strong and solid stones that were used ensure that the building stands strong today.  The strong Inca foundation has withstood many earthquakes because of the tight Inca construction.

 

I was inspired by the concept of these layers and wanted to have them represented in some piece of the collection, so created these stacking rings.  They are in high polished silver and black rhodium plating to create a contrast and visual interest. They nestle together like the well built stones of the Incas.

 

 

Each ring can be worn separately or stacked together, easy finishing pieces for a polished look that can be worn daily.
