Our Story

At Anvil and Ivy we handcraft modern heirlooms, for lovers of meaningful design and everyday luxury.  Made using the finest materials and specially selected gemstones, our contemporary jewellery keeps the natural world at its heart.

Each Anvil and Ivy piece is lovingly crafted in our studio, in the rural market town of Maldon.  Combining age old techniques with contemporary design. We create fine and demi-fine jewellery, with a focus on soft organic form and texture.

Believing in slow consumption and considered purchases, we make jewellery that tells it’s own story alongside yours. 

 

About our founder 

Anvil and Ivy was founded in 2014 by jeweller Sophie Arnott.  Based in rural Essex, Sophie began developing her signature style from within the garden shed.  Jewellery making provided sanctuary and a sense of creative freedom during an otherwise troubling time. 

Sophie spent several years teaching workshops in the heart of the jewellery quarter in Hatton Garden, before deciding to focus solely on her growing business.  In 2016 Sophie set up her first workshop premises before moving to a High street position in 2019.  Based now from a light and airy boutique in Maldon, Essex.  Sophie crafts unique and unusual engagement, wedding and everyday pieces.

Creativity and working with her hands gave Sophie a deeper connection to herself and to the world around her.  She wanted to create jewellery that became a special part of the wearers life story. 

We hope to continue to create meaningful and sentimental modern heirlooms for you and your loved ones to treasure for many years to come.
