Announcement    For some reason our shop settings would not allow shipments to the U.S. a customer pointed this out and I've hopefully fixed it. Yes absolutely we ship anywhere on our continent.

Just contact us if you have a problem.

Our name change ... from Topaz Bead Gallery to Hammer & Awl is a movement to recognize the vending we do and are planning to do at festivals and such. We plan on selling the brick and mortar store, Topaz Bead Gallery, in about 5 years and want our crafts and what we sell at festivals to remain separate from the store as it would not be a part of the sale.

Hammer & Awl specializes in metal, wood and leather goods from home decor to personal use. Chris is the metal and wood guy while Kate is the leather chick.


Topaz Bead Gallery ...
We are a bead and jewelry supply shop, and also artists that specialize in leather, jewelry and home decor items. All our jewelry is hand crafted using quality materials and components, and are truly one of a kind.

Kate does incredible leather, bead and wire work, with Steampunk being one of her influences. She also hand makes leather purses and pouches, using a variety of leathers including bison and deer hide. Kate hand paints garments and is an accomplished seamstress.

As a retired Metalwork teacher, Chris now designs and makes his hand crafted pieces in his in store studio. Using hammers, torch, chemicals, copper, brass, silver and various other tools and materials, Chris creates unique one of kind pieces.


Yes we are happy to do commissions :)

About HammerandAwl

Sales 54
On Etsy since 2010

Welcome to Hammer & Awl where you'll find hand crafted items in wood, metal and leather.

Hi allow us to introduce ourselves ... we are Kate & Chris.

Chris, a retired shop teacher, is the Hammer part of our name; he works with metal and wood. I am the Awl part of our name and I work with leather.

We reside in northern BC Canada with our 2 dogs Huey and Luke and our fat cat Hank. Chris bangs away daily in our garage creating his one of a kind pieces. He loves working with live edge Western Birch, burls and so many types of wood making boxes, coat racks, kitchen prep stations, tables and more.

I work with leather and have been since I was 14. My passion is journal covers. I love the wave of creativity that flow in so many directions, I can do something simple then go to my workbench and create something elaborately amazing.

We love vending at music festivals and are looking forward to many summers and winter festivals in the upcoming years. We love creating and are always looking for new ideas.

Please do contact us if you're looking for something special that we can make for you.

Til then .... :)
