Brass is often an overlooked metal, being not as shiny as gold and not as widely utilized as sterling silver. It’s technically an alloy made between copper and zinc, but that doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that it can give even the most mundane everyday items new life. Its weight and general heft adds durability that means these items will last long after you. While brass looks good around your neck or on your wrist, it can also be used to add a nice contrast to a leather bracelet or belt. Don’t worry about babying it either, like a fine wine or good leather, brass will only get better with age.
