December is in full force and the holidays are quickly approaching. Are you feeling anxious about presents or unsure what to get that one loved one? Why purchase an ordinary gift when you have the ability to make one that is personal, unique, and extra meaningful. Everyone likes a heartfelt handmade gift, and working with metal is a great way to get your hands dirty, express your ingenuity, and craft a gift that lasts a lifetime.


Brass is an excellent choice when it comes to making visually beautiful and timelessly elegant gifts. This warm-hued metal is valued for its high malleability, ductility, and machinability, meaning the metal can be readily manipulated into an array of shapes while still retaining high strength. Alongside these properties, brass possess high wear-resistance, electrical and thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance, and is antimicrobial. However, the most outstanding quality of brass is its alluring color. Brass exists in a range of attractive colors, from red and brown hues to more yellow and gold hues. Because of its aesthetic charm, brass is widely used to enhance decorative and architectural applications, and for items designed for visual appeal. Try out our Brass Sample Packs – you get a variety of shapes and brass alloys!
