In the Andes mountains at elevations of more than 12,000 feet, open trenches accessible only by mule yield gleaming stones, including lapis lazuli, the national stone of Chile. The Inca kingdom flourished in this part of the world, and today jewelers in family-owned shops in Santiago draw on geometric Inca designs to create pieces that blend history and geography into wearable art. The tapered forms of these lapis lazuli, turquoise, jasper, chrysocolla, and pyrite stones, outlined in sterling silver, echo the shape of ancient stone doorways found at Incan ruins.

    Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

A small group of Balinese artisans collaborate on the tiny granulated designs on these medallion earrings. Each is handcrafted from sterling silver and paired with a smooth onxy cabochon.

    History reports that the mighty Inca were swiftly wiped out by a small band of Conquistadors. But new evidence is being unearthed that may help re-write history. Remains of those who died in battle have been discovered, and for the first time physical evidence is suggesting that Spain's conquest of the Incan Empire may have actually taken twenty years. Brought to life through CGI reconstruction and reenactments, the untold epic saga of decades of guerilla warfare and rebellion are finally revealed as National Geographic uncovers the truth behind the Inca's last stand.
