Anvil is Raleigh's premier destination for art jewelry and metalwork.
We carry jewelry and art from Becky Wofford Jewelry, hhp, Mary Catherine Floyd, Katherine Cherry, Jeremy Knoerzer, Reborn Designs By Samantha Barnett, Tiffany Coley and hand cut gems by That's Brilliant Lapidary, just to name a few. In addition to all of the amazing pieces we stock in the store we love to make custom jewelry that will become a family heirloom. We also carry Whispering Willow Soap Company's products in our store.
Anvil Studio and Gallery is a retail store in Raleigh’s historic Mordecai neighborhood. Anvil showcases the work of local as well as national metalsmiths and supports the local community of fine art jewelers and metalworkers. All of the jewelry and metalwork at Anvil is made in the time honored techniques of sawing, forming, and forging. Craftsmanship is one of the values that you will find in every artist represented by Anvil; each piece is made to stand the test of time. The proprietor of the store is Becky Wofford-Waehner, of Becky Wofford Jewelry. Becky started Anvil as an outlet for her own designs, along with the work of the many local artists who inspire her. She feels the Raleigh area has great resources in metalsmith education — Ornamentea, Pullen Arts Center, and the NCSU Craft Center are right here in the area, and the metal design program at ECU is not far away. Anvil hopes to begin building national recognition for Raleigh as a destination area for handcrafted metalwork, just as Seagrove, NC is known for pottery!
