About Our Shop

ANVIL metals studio, based in North Carolina, is where Becky and Matt create limited edition and one of a kind pieces. The majority of Becky's work is vitreous enamel on copper. Vitreous enamel is ground glass which she sifts onto the copper and fires in a kiln at 1500 degrees to fuse the glass to both sides.  Becky and Matt use a process where Matt designs images using iron oxide based on a combination of Becky's original drawings, vintage illustrations, and Matt's computer aided designs. The iron oxide images are then transferred onto Becky's enameled pieces and individually torch fired to fuse the iron oxide permanently into the glass. 

Our Story

ANVIL metals studio is a love story. Matt and Becky met in college while both were studying commercial photography.  Upon graduation they started a photography business together.  A wedding in Hawaii, two beautiful sons, and careers in museum photography and handcrafted jewelry later, Matt and Becky dreamed of working together again.

ANVIL is how we came full circle. Our work came together from Matt's love of photography and graphic design and Becky's background in jewelry making, drawing, and photography. Becky has spent the last decade honing her craft in jewelry making. Sawing her designs was her way of incorporating her drawings into her work and stones became the color.  A twist of fate later and Becky was introduced to enameling. Adding imagery to enamel became her singular focus. With Matt's computer imaging background and Becky's enameling knowledge they perfected the way of adding images to enamel via iron oxide. ANVIL incorporates all of their unique skills into one spectacular line.

We hope you enjoy every piece of ANVIL jewelry and art that you add to your art collection. A piece of our heart goes into every one of them with the hope that it brings you joy and a connection to the piece.

Our pieces start with copper sheet. We hand saw some of our shapes and use our hydraulic press to assist us in cutting out our other designs. After filing and cleaning, we sift vitreous enamel onto each piece. Vitreous enamel is ground glass. The ground glass is fired onto both sides of the copper in a 1500 degree kiln which fuses the glass to the surface of the copper. Next we design our own iron oxide images using a mix of our photography, original drawings, vintage illustrations, and our in house computer aided designs. We transfer the iron oxide onto the piece and individually torch fire the iron oxide onto the piece fusing it permanently into the glass.
