$5.50

STORY
All filigree charms & motifs are stamped from brass (nickel & lead free) sheets 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 style stampings.
Care of:
Brass will naturally darken (called a patina) as it ages. You may like the antique it creates however if you want to bring the piece back to a shiny brass simply:
Boil 1 cup of water, add a tblsp vinegar and drop of washing up detergent. Combine all ingredients in a jar & shake for 30 seconds. Dry on a paper towel.
Antiquing:
Use a stabilised liver of sulfur to create an antique finish for silver, copper, brass and bronze metals. (i.e. unplated)

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 material makes it
    able to be accurately manufactured with less scrap, less rework and less
    energy than other materials. Products made from brass generally have
    good “cradle-to-grave” characteristics as not only do they show good
    durability but brass is also readily recycled at the end of the products
    working life.
  • Brass is lead and nickel free
  • Brass soft muted honey colouring, makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
