Hammers for metal working and jewelry making are great tools to have for your metal projects.  I love just about any tool, so I am a bit biased on this.   On this page is a selection of hammers for many purposes in your jewelry making and metal working.
We have some of the newer hammers from a trusted source- The Beadsmith- so know they will be a useful addition to your tools.

Double Headed Rubber Mallet ~ This is an all purpose hammer for jewelry making and wire working.  Use a rubber mallet to hammer wire without marring the finish on it.  Nice weight and fits well in a woman's hand.  Approx. 7" high and head measures 2.5" across.
$3.19

Beadsmith Chasing Hammer~This is one of my favorite hammers.  I think I have a thing for hammers-but they have so many different ones and specific uses- a girl just has to have the right hammer on hand- okay I'm a tool ho. 
A chasing hammer has a large face side for flattening and a ball-peen side for riveting and metal design (hammered look).  Not all chasing hammers are alike- if you look at one and the large size is flat and not slightly convex-you would mar your wire.  This head is slightly convex (bows outward) so it has a large striking area but the edges are smooth.  Use your chasing hammer for shaping, forming flattening, forging and texturizing.  Use the ball peen portion for the texturizing- say you want cute little dimples in your metal-this will do that.  The larger side is great if you want to make spirals, then position them on a block of metal (bench block, anvil) and pound the spiral until you get the desired look of flatness on it.  You can then take the ball-peen side and add texture to the flat spiral.  Use on blank brass metal discs, wires, etc.  There is a lot of info on the internet about chasing hammers and how to use them.  You Tube is a good source of info on how to use something.  Sold per hammer and made by Beadsmith.

Beadsmith Plastic/Rubber Jewelry Hammer~This hammer has 2 heads to it, one is hard yellow plastic and is to be used to avoid marring and scratches on your precious metals and wire.  The soft black rubber is to be used for more delicate work.  The heads measure approx. 2 1/2" long and the head diameter for both the yellow plastic and black rubber is 5/8".  Made by Beadsmith.  Sold per hammer.

Beadsmith Ball Pein Hammer- 2 oz.~This  double-head hammer measures approx. 7/16 in diameter across the flat side of the hammer head.  This is light weight and easy to use.  I personally have this one and use it quite often -especially the rounded head end to put bumps in metals for texture. From The Beadsmith.

Beadsmith Small Texture & Planish Hammer~ This hammer has 2 heads that are 19mm each.  One is for texturing metal and the other side for planishing.
Planish means to flatten, smooth or polish metal by rolling or hammering.  The process of planishing uses many light blows to smooth metal which has already been formed by some other means.   (Info from Aviation Pros website).   The length of the hammer is 9 1/2" long.  The head length is 72mm.  The head measures approx. 3/4" in diameter.  Just wonderful for those smaller projects where you need more control.

ATTN:  MAC Users & Ipod Phone Users~
For some reason Mac/Ipods & Paypal do not work well together.  For some Mac & Ipod users, the Paypal cart will dump after several things are added to the cart.  I might suggest you write the item numbers down that come up when you "add to cart".  If it does dump, you can call -740-477-1238 or email your order c_byers1@msn.com.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I have notified Paypal of this problem, but so far it has not been fixed.
 
 
 
PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.
 
~International Customers~
When checking out with Paypal, please add your phone number.  The United States Postal Service is requiring that for all international shipments now.
Thanks
ANY large dollar order~~
The shipping on every order goes up with the total of the sale.  Many of the things are small so the larger shipping is not warranted, so then I refund the difference.
If you have a question on shipping please contact me at

This does not apply to the standard shipping charge-just the larger orders when the shipping charge is at higher cost.
