About

Always looking for a creative outlet, Michael turned his love for metalsmithing into a venture he could share with the world.

Imagination is not the same as creativity. Creativity takes the process of imagination to another level. To be creative you actually have to do something. It involves putting your imagination to work to make something new.

Without realizing it, working with metal has been in blood since I was born. My dad, the hardest working man I've ever known, was a tool & die maker working in machine repair for his entire adult life. He and my mom taught me a lot of what I know and showed me many of the skills I use today. I'm lucky enough to be married to the most amazing woman imaginable and surrounded by the most inspirational son and two daughters a father could ask for...I decided to follow my heart and dreams to pursue a true passion - metalsmithing...working with my hands to create one-of-a-kind items. I've also been building and creating with wood on my own since I was young and have decided to take those skills up a notch as well and create beautiful, rustic furniture and accessories, many of which are built from reclaimed wood. I am now thrilled to bring along my amazing and very talented wife as a co-designer and maker for the items you see in my shop. Her enthusiasm and new styles are so welcomed and bringing new light to Hammerhead Designs! We are very grateful for the opportunity to use our hands and put into form what our minds see.

I love working with copper, sterling silver, brass and aluminum metals...and now STEEL! Traditional blacksmithing is now becoming a part of my skill set. Hammers, saws, torches, pliers, anvils and vises are my weapons of choice - my tools of the trade. I can never have enough hammers and am constantly looking for another one, especially older vintage hammers - those that have a lot of history to them and if they could speak, would be able to fill a book with stories about their past work and creations. I love older machinist tools, ones created by people like my dad, who worked machine repair and had the ability to design and create any tool he needed for a particular job. His ability to create the right tool for the job always amazed me and there are several tools of his in my shop studio that I use every day.

I enjoy becoming a part of someone...allowing that person to stand out from the crowd and express their style and uniqueness by wearing my jewelry and accessories. Everything I create is made with the intention of being comfortable to wear and at the same time, being something that is completely different from what you normally see every day. I absolutely love creating custom pieces per request from people all over the world...putting my creativity to work inspires me to design a perfect piece of art that will be worn and proudly displayed. Taking something raw and making it refined is my goal with every item I make.

My ambition is to take my metalsmithing, blacksmithing and wood working full time, so that it becomes a sustainable and rewarding business for me and my family. Currently when I'm not working my day job, taking care of our farm, or working with metal, I am spending every waking moment with my beautiful family. They are my true inspiration for everything I do. And I hope to pass along my skills and passion for what I do onto my children, so that they can follow their true dreams one day.

Odd ball lesser known facts about me:
- Biggest hobby/passion is keeping and breeding ball pythons
- Wildlife enthusiast | Reptiles & herpetology being number one
- Scared of heights, but love rock climbing
- Craft beer enthusiast and aficionado
- Pagan - Paganism is a large part of my inspiration behind many of my pieces
- Sustainable farming & permaculture enthusiast
- Tattoo lover
- Sagittarius / Earth horse

Additional policies and FAQs
***Please make sure to leave me all the stamping or sizing instructions in the notes to seller box at checkout.***

S I Z I N G:
It is the buyer's full responsibility to accurately size his or her own wrist, finger or other body part when ordering and purchasing a piece that is specifically sized, in order for the piece to be designed and created. Any and all discrepancies in regards to a mis-sized piece are the buyer's responsibility when taken into account that I can only create the sized piece according to the buyer's order and information provided. Please take into consideration that wider pieces tend to fit tighter and smaller and therefore may need to be a size bigger. If you are unsure on how to accurately size your wrist, finger, neck, etc., please convo me so I can give you some tips. When I create a piece sized according to your specifications, I am NOT responsible for it if it does not fit correctly.

C A R E & M A I N T E N A N C E:
To preserve an item's finish, please do not use heavy commercial abrasives, tarnish removers or ultrasonic cleaners. Pieces should be worn with care and not during aggressive activities (working out, gardening, etc.) or long exposures to water - shower, swimming, etc. Avoid strikes or blows to any minerals or gemstones. A warm, natural oxidation will occur after repeated wear or use if you choose not have the piece protected with acrylic spray or Renaissance wax. A soft polish cloth can be used to lightly buff the surface. Storing in an airtight container when not in use will also help preserve its finish. Many times, oxidized pieces will slowly buff away some of the darkened areas...this is completely normal with regular wear. If you prefer to have your piece redarkened, please let me know and I will help you out.

M E T A L S:
Like all metals that may mar or scratch with wear/friction & will age over time based on frequency of use, care is to be taken with each piece. They may also tarnish or damage depending on the PH of the body & the circumstances of wear; in the shower, pool, prolonged sun exposure, professional stunt work, full body combat, etc. Want to freshen up your metal or restore that orginal finish it came with, please convo me and I will walk you through the steps. Please be aware that depending on the PH of your skin, some times copper/brass/bronze/sterling silver will turn your skin a different color. This is nothing to be alarmed about and is normal for many people. Others will find that there skin never turns color at all. It varies from person to person. Also, chemicals, soaps, salt water and other substances can be very harsh on many of the metals I use in my work. Therefore it is not recommended to wear any of the jewelry I create in the ocean or while using harsh or abrasive chemicals as often times this can lead to the piece corroding, oxidizing, losing its original oxidation and finish or even falling apart. I try to lessen the chance of this happening by applying both Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic spray and a coat of Renaissance wax to most copper/brass/bronze/sterling silver pieces.

I used Renaissance Wax on most of my items, as well as Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic spray to help maintain the brilliance and patina of the piece, so that it will not fade over time, and to protect the metal to help avoid skin color discoloration that can occur. Renaissance Wax is extremely high quality and used by museums, galleries and professionals worldwide for the preservation of their precious pieces! It forms a durable, transparent, and lustrous protective coating that will not discolor. Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic is safe non-toxic, non-yellowing, moisture-resistant, permanent, protective gloss finish coating suitable for metal jewelry. If you would prefer to have your bracelet patina naturally over time and do not want Renaissance Wax and Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic applied to it, please let me know in the notes at checkout.

**Item Production**

**Current design time for personalized/custom pieces is approximately 7-10 business days before items are shipped** Some items may take longer. If you need a personalized item sooner, please convo me to discuss. All ready made items are shipped within the next business day of purchase!

All items in my shop are hand crafted by me personally. All of my components, findings and materials are only of the highest quality and purchased from the most reputable manufacturers available.

Once an item is designed, the materials undergo a multi-step process taking them from a raw state, to a beautiful handmade, work of art. I personally and carefully cut, stamp, sculpt, oxidize, and finely file and polish all metal to each orders specifications.

Each piece upon completion is finely polished in museum grade Renaissance Wax and often times Krylon Clear Acrylic spray lacquer. This gives a smooth and even luster, and prevents tarnishing, finger prints and degrade from humidity. When ordering stamped/personalized pieces, keep in mind that each piece is hand stamped, letter-by-letter, one-by-one. I pride myself of the meticulous attention to spacing and alignment. Although handcrafted, I strive to ensure that each piece has a professional and quality look that you can be proud to wear!
