Texturing Hammers

by Kate Richourg

Need a hammer or mallet for your jewelry making project? We have hammers of different weights, lengths, and textures. We carry brass hammers and rawhide mallets. We have ballpein hammers which are perfect for wire wrap jewelry projects and tempering metals.

 

Today I want to share a quick tool video from Kate about using our Texturing Hammers, and today we’d like to feature several different sets of texturing hammers that you can use for different purposes.  You can see all of these featured hammers on our sister site JewerlyTools.com


 

 

A few tips about the Bullseye texturing hammer:

Texturing hammers for non-ferrous metals. Our double-sided hammers enable the user to make attractive patterns to give jewelry and other metal items a special look. Two different patterns with each hammer. Just place sheet metal on a flat metal block or anvil and strike sharply. In no time you will have interesting patterns. Hammers have a Rockwell hardness of 48, and the more the hammer is used, the more interesting the patterns become. Let your imagination take over.
