This listing is for 2 made to order hammered dread spirals made in your choice of size and raw wire color. They are hand shaped, smooth filed, and Hammered. Aluminum will not tarnish. Copper and brass will develop a natural patina over time, so I include a free pro-polish pad with those two options for those of you that want to keep them patina free and gleaming.
This listing is especially important to me. As one of the first Heatherfish designs I ever listed online, it is still a popular favorite. For nostalgic purposes, I have kept the original photos. Before I was well established in my trade, I owned one hammer, a flat pry bar, and one needle file. These were what I used to create these hammered beads. Because I didn't have a stamping block, I used the pry bar in my lap to hammer against. With a little determination, anything is possible. In addition, my photography skills have much improved since the early days.
The wire type used for the sample beads in the photos is aluminum.
