We love how easily the use of a brass stamping can instantly take a simple drop earring to a statement chandelier like these mandala shaped ones. They are so lightweight you won’t even know you are wearing big earrings!

All brass blanks, charms & motifs are brass and manufactured from original vintage patterns by predominantly hand crafted family owned companies in Germany, Czech Republic and France dating back to the early
1900s. A few of these companies still survive today and manufacture original vintage styles like this one!
WHY WE LOVE WORKING WITH BRASS AND YOU WILL ALSO!
- Brass is highly durable
- Brass is polished easily
- Brass is corrosion resistant
- Brass is green: a highly machinable with less scrap, less rework and less
energy than other materials.
- Brass is lead and nickel free
- Brass has a soft muted honey colouring, which makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
Brass will naturally darken (called a patina) as it ages. You may like the antique patina it creates however if you want to bring the piece back to a shiny brass simply:
- 1 cup of warm water, add a tblsp vinegar
and drop of washing up detergent. Combine all ingredients in a jar &
gently shake for 30 seconds. Dry on a paper towel. Too easy!
