Hammered Wedding Rings add a touch of individuality to any shaped wedding band. As Jewellers Anton Pruden and Rebecca Smith were both trained as silversmiths originally. The unusual look of the jewellery that they design at Pruden and Smith uses hammering as a technique little used in traditional jewellery. It gives their jewellery an individuality not seen in the High Street. In their Sussex based workshops they have well over two hundred different hammers, each with it’s own unique purpose. The wooden mallet pictured is used for doming out a disc or strip of precious metal such as a hammered cuff bangle. It is a little large for working on a ring. The smaller hammer has a broad face and is use to hammer a slender shaped piece of steel (a chasing tool) that is used to “sketch” a design onto a ring, similar to engraving except that no metal is removed. the small rounded ball at the other end is used to produce a small round dense hammered effect called “peening”. The rings pictured below all use different types of hammering. Visit the Pruden and Smith gallery and Workshops for a workshop tour and see the hammeres in action. they are based in the centre of Ditchling between Brighton, Lewes, Hassocks, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill.
