Santa Fe Shop Displays Poyer’s Jewelry

Pendant and Bracelet by Poyer.

Jewelry artist Jimmy Poyer was born in 1954 near what is now northeast Arizona. Throughout his education, Poyer never took an art course. Instead, he was apart of a country western band, the Jim Poyer Band, for twenty-three years.

When the musician lifestyle caught up with Poyer, he went to work for Jimmy Harrison making jewelry. After two years, Harrison relocated and Poyer began his own line of jewelry.

Poyer enjoys experimenting with different color combinations, striving for a contemporary look using all natural materials.

Both Poyer and his jewelry contain and display tradition. Poyer enjoys spending time with his family as well as attending squaw dances and other ceremonies. One of his central designs is a bear.

The Santa Fe Shop is located at 4147 Main Street, Fish Creek. For more information call 920.868.4300.
