Wire-wrapped stone and gems (Jewelry)
Directions: He will be showing at Nature’s Way. Nature’s Way Health Food Store is located on the south side of the Mountain Home Square, next door to Mountain Home Floral Company.
Individual styles of people he sees every day anywhere inspire the works of Christopher Royer. Music and the cultures surrounding different genres and the art and culture of people around the world are also motivations.
Royer uses semi-precious metals such as copper, silver (sterling or plated), bronze, nickel, or even gold-plated wires/pendants to accent semi-precious stones such as turquoise and various others (jasper, jade, etc.) He also uses leather from time to time.
Royer is a Mountain Home High School Graduate and part-time student at ASUMH. “I’ve traveled across America as a musician since I was 14 playing in various groups and playing a lot of Music Festivals such as Memphis in May and Mulberry Mountain Harvest Festival,” says Royer. He states, “I’ve always had a knack for making my own jewelry as an expression to my style and recently branched out to wire wrapping stones and various other things to accent others personal styles and throwing in some world culture and things I’ve seen on my journeys thus far.”
Royer can work personally with anyone on something they would like. His work can be seen and purchased when on display with The Art Odyssey or at facebook.com/travelersjewelry.
