Brass, the bright, musical metal, has been a jewelry favorite for thousands of years. An alloy of copper containing 33% zinc, yellow brass jewelry wire has a muted yellow color that is very similar to gold. Yellow brass jewelry wire looks even more like gold after it has been freshly polished.
But of course, yellow brass wire is far less expensive than gold! Not only is yellow brass jewelry wire an inexpensive alternative, or practice option, for gold, but its malleability is also similar to gold. Its user-friendliness has made yellow brass jewelry wire a jeweler’s favorite since the dawn of history.
Try yellow brass jewelry wire for neck rings, bracelets, and body jewelry. Did you know yellow brass wire is a great “green” choice for jewelers? A very high percentage of all brass alloys are recycled.
Try the musical metal, yellow brass on your next jewelry piece or even in a jewelry series.
