Brass is the smokin’ hot jewelry metal of choice, as seen by Twisted Silver’s crazy-popular Peace&Love designs. And really, what’s not to love? Check out these five really good reasons to LOVE brass…
1. Brass finishes first:
From blackened and antiqued to polished and shiny, brass is available in a wide spectrum of finishes. All finishes warm skin tones, making brass so easy to wear. It exudes an earthy natural feel that works with you. Polished up to a gloss or rough and raw, brass finishes first. Check out the Stage bracelet and the Tre necklace.
2. Brass is ever-changing:
Brass is a living metal that reacts with air, water, heat and time to create GORGEOUS patinas! Don’t even think about polishing your brass jewelry. Your unique piece is a one-of-a-kind artwork and will be an ever-changing source of inspiration. No two Gypsy necklaces are alike!
3. Brass is expressive:
Edgy or heirloom, delicate or bold, brass can accent a myriad of looks. Add the Justice Cuff to a simple blouse to introduce a statement of strength. Or add the Athena cuff for an interesting vintage hinting.
4. Brass is inexpensive:
Gold is getting more and more expensive… brass is not. Brass allows the fashion savvy to explore statement sizes and chunky chain without breaking the bank. It’s rugged nature holds up for years where the softer gold may scratch and bend. See the Scroll ring and the Phatty bracelet.
5. Brass plays well with other players:
Metal mixing is all the way in, and brass blends beautifully with other metals. But also try blending brass with wood, leather and beading for effortless layering and stacking.
