Our Story

Judie Raiford with Gallery dogs

Raiford Gallery opened on Canton Street in Roswell, Georgia in 1996 in a handmade three-level timber frame building built by Judie Raiford and her friends. 

For the next 22 years, Judie created her signature jewelry in the the basement level studio of this 9000 square foot gallery while representing some of the finest art and craft in the country. 

Over these 24 years in business, Raiford Gallery has gained national recognition winning Niche's Top 100 Galleries in the US seven times and voted Best of Atlanta twice.  Judie has also been interviewed and featured in many magazines over the years including Atlanta Magazine and Voyage ATL.

In her renovation, she included a window from the gallery into her jewelry studio where clients can watch her unfold the mysteries of gold and silversmithing.
