All brass jewellery 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.
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, set aside until warm. Then 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.
Use a stabilised liver of sulfur to create an antique finish for your brass 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 which 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
- Brass is lead and nickel free
- Brass has a soft muted honey colouring, which makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
“Making good jewellery is made up of three basics…good materials, good tools, and good techniques.”
