I wanted an idea that conveyed hard work; strength of will; fortitude. The image of the blacksmith, hammering away at a piece of shapeless steel until it took the shape that he intended, came to mind.

I used the lost-wax casting method, which required a wax model. I carved the anvil as a whole, and then did the same with the hammer head. I split the wax in two - it is a small detail, I realize, but I wanted the horn of the anvil to point the same direction on both sleeves. Before casting, I made a silicone mold of all 4 pieces, so I can, more easily make subsequent pairs.
After casting the pieces, and some cleanup, I carved the hammer handle to fit the head - the wooden handle actually passes through a recess in the hammer head - and attached both to a silver silhouette cut from silver sheet. The two elements are joined by sterling silver chain.

The hammer, starting with the handle, slips easily through the button hole, allowing the wearer to display the hammer on one side and the anvil on the other.

Also available in gold or steel. Check back soon for prices.
