Greetings, Your Grace,
  I think Rio Grande Jewelry Supply had some nice pieces, but i havn't seen their catalog in a long time.
  Hammering it yourself opens a few questions.....  What type of hammer are you using?  A small ball peen works best for my taste, or sometimes you can grind a cross peen to suit.  A lot of the pattern is in how you stike the piece, and that comes with trial and error, and practice.
  I hope this helps a little.  If I can find it I will send you the url for Rio off list,
  Your Servant,
  Colin McCrandall

  I am sorry about asking this question in over the list. 
Do any of you know if I can buy 3/4 to 1 inch hammered brass by the foot somewhere?
also how to you hammer brass. Just hitting it with a hammer is not making a nice pattern/
