Welcome to The Copper Anchor! We are a husband + wife team living near the heart of Phoenix. We believe in the beauty of handmade and keeping it simple. Our goal is to create minimalist designs that inspire the soul. In our shop you will find a variety of home decor items and jewelry, such as wooden arrows, necklaces, wall art prints, and keychains. We bring a great amount of love and passion into our creative process, being inspired by the world around us and the joy we find in it.
We live a colorful life as parents, creators, adventurers, writers, coffee shop lovers, book store junkies, and hope seekers. We love rainy days, the ocean, cooking yummy food, taking pretty pictures, playing soccer, reading way past our bedtime, and not opening our mail unless it looks fun!

We are passionate about adoption, and this is the reason our little shop first came to life.
Adoption is so expensive, and as we looked into fundraising options to add a 6th little member to our family, we thought it would be fun to open a little Etsy shop. From there, our brand + shop has only grown!
Each new season brings exciting ideas, and bigger ways for us to grow and expand into a full fledge business. We are so grateful for the love and support of our fans, and every single customer who has helped us get this far. It is because of you that we can do what we love for a living!
We wholeheartedly believe that every child has the right to be loved and deserves the warmth and security of a family, so each month a portion of our sales go to the Morning Star Foundation. A foundation that exists to help abandoned and needy children with severe heart disease. Their projects include a foster home in China for orphans with complex heart defects, as well as a family preservation program called, The LOVE Project.
"The Love Project was born from a desire to attack the global orphan crisis at the root – to prevent orphans from BECOMING orphans in the first place. In countries like China and Uganda, where access to medical care and resources to provide it are not a given, many families are forced to make the heartbreaking decision to abandon their child, in the hopes that someone else can afford the care that they could not. This is a choice that NO family should ever be forced to make, and Morning Star Foundation is committed to standing in the gap for these families – making it possible for children to receive the heart surgeries they desperately need to survive…and remain with their birth families who desperately love them."

Why the name, The Copper Anchor? Anchors have long been heralded as one of the oldest known Christian symbols of hope, and copper is one of our favorite metals. Copper is 100% recyclable, it is necessary for human health to strengthen the connective tissue in the body, and despite being less valuable than silver or gold, copper has been dubbed as man’s eternal metal, due to it's versatility and durability.
In the beginning we never intended our shop to be anything more than an adoption fundraiser, but being the creative souls we are, it seems inevitable that such art and working with our hands would find a permanent place in our hearts. It has become such an unexpected and happy blessing in our lives, and we hope you feel this same passion and love behind every item we make.
Our work is greatly influenced by our desire to travel, beautiful architecture, and our love for words that encourage and move us to live a little deeper in life.
Although our artist style is ever evolving and ever being defined, our hearts have always been drawn to organic textures, neutral colors, quality materials, simple patterns, reclaimed wood, and various metals. Who knows what we will create next!
