Wire breaks after hammering...?

When I harden my wire by hammering, the wire often breaks in two.

What can I do to make my wire strong?

What gauge wire you using? You are hammering too long. All it takes to work harden is a few well placed whacks. I harden mine in a tumbler with stainless steel jeweler's shot, Harbor Freight has a reasonable unit.
