Brass has been a staple of jewellery design for centuries, and its history is as rich and beautiful as the pieces it holds. Throughout time, brass has been used to create timeless pieces that will forever hold their beauty and value. From ancient Egyptian rings to modern-day necklaces, brass has always been part of the jewellery making process. Its versatility makes it perfect for creating intricate details and unique styles. So whether you’re wearing an heirloom piece or something handmade with love, you can rest assured that it was once crafted from the gleaming brass!
Brass is an alloy composed of copper and zinc. It is one of the most widely used alloys in the world, thanks to its combination of strength, malleability, and resistance to corrosion. Its color ranges from yellowish-brown to reddish-brown, depending on the zinc content. It's often used in construction for items like doorknobs and locks due to its strength and rust resistance. Brass is also commonly used in musical instruments for its ability to produce a warm tone. Along with being a popular choice for jewellery design due to its wear-resistance, brass can also be heavily polished or buffed to create decorative pieces such as trinkets or home accessories in general.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Brass is a popular choice of metal for jewellery design because it has several unique characteristics that make it ideal for creating intricate and beautiful pieces.
"Brass is relatively lightweight when compared to other metals, meaning that jewellery made from brass won’t weigh down the wearer. This is a big plus when I design more chunky jewellery and go for a Statement look " says Malene Storm - Designer at Dansk. She continues " Furthermore, its malleability makes it easy to work with and allows me to craft delicate details with ease. I am as designer very intrigued by the power of contrasts in a design- and playing with surfaces and finishes is my favorite part in the design process "
Brass also offers great durability which ensures that brass jewellery can last a lifetime without loosing shape. All these factors combine to make brass an excellent choice for crafting stunning pieces of cost-effective jewellery.

CARE FOR BRASS
Have you ever considered why brass jewellery can leave a dark shadow on your skin? Brass is an alloy of zinc and copper, making it prone to oxidizing as time goes by. This oxidation process can be sped up with the presence of acid, sweat and salt! It's not permanent - cleaning it off with soap and water or taking it off when you're playing sports should do the trick. That's why they say: if you want your jewellery to look shiny and new for longer, we recommend polishing brass jewellery and taking it off when you get the chance!
