    Christopher Thompson Royds

    Immortalizing Nature

    Through immortalizing natural moments, Christopher Thompson Royds is an artist who chooses jewelry as his medium.

    Studying and pressing freshly picked flowers from the English countryside, Christopher traces his gatherings in 18 karat gold and then resurrects them through sculpting the gold to resemble the original flower. In each piece, Christopher preserves a natural instant in time, in many ways overcoming and conserving nature's fleeting beauty.
