About My Shop

ANVIL metals studio, based in North Carolina, is where Becky creates 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 uses a process where she designs images using iron oxide based on a combination of her original drawings, vintage illustrations, and computer aided designs. The iron oxide images are then transferred onto the enameled pieces and fired again to fuse the iron oxide permanently into the glass. 

My Story

ANVIL metals studio is a love story. A love of photography and imagery. I picked up my first camera at 18. A Minolta SRT101. It was love at first sight. I learned to print my own photos in my apartment bathroom. I then went on to study commercial photography at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, NC.  

ANVIL is how I came full circle. My work has come together from my love of photography, graphic design, and jewelry making.  Sawing my designs was my way of incorporating imagery into my work and stones became the color.  A twist of fate later and I was introduced to enameling. Adding imagery to enamel became my singular focus. With my photography background and enameling knowledge I perfected the way of adding images to enamel via iron oxide. ANVIL incorporates all of my unique skills into one spectacular line.

I hope you enjoy every piece of ANVIL jewelry and art that you add to your art collection. A piece of my 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.
