About Our Brass FindingsTrinity Brass Co. offers a large selection of brass findings from delicate filigrees to bold stampings, earwires, chain, jumprings, and more. Our brass findings are nickel and lead free. Many of Trinity Brass Co’s brass stampings are still made utilizing the original dies made over a 100 years ago. Using the vintage dies allows us to offer you the same exact stampings as you will find used in antique jewelry that grace the pages of Vintage Jewelry books. All our brass stampings are Made in the USA.* No matter what your style is, Vintage Elegance, Modern Style or Bohemian Chic, we have the products for your jewelry making needs.
All of our brass findings are professionally finished, as we do not recommend using raw brass in jewelry designing. Brass is a wonderful light weight metal to use but, raw brass will continue to darken over time to a very unattractive color. Pits can also occur in raw brass over time especially if the design gets wet. Raw brass can also turn skin and clothes a green/black color. In order to have brass products that are jewelry quality, the brass must be professionally finished.
About our FinishOur brass products have been professionally finished, in the USA using a nickel & lead free process on all our colors. Several of our finishes have been developed just for us. To achieve the high quality finishes we offer, our process is carefully regulated and only quality materials are used. After the brass findings have achieved their specific color, they are then sealed with a protective non-toxic lacquer so that your designs will stay looking like you designed them today, even years from now. The process we use is the same process and quality that the top jewelry designers use on their jewelry, which you find in fine department stores. Even though our brass findings have been professionally finished, they are still suitable for layering, linking, bending and manipulating. Although we do our best to keep our colors consistent, our methods are not a science and colors can vary slightly from batch to batch.
About our ColorsPlease Note: All our brass products have been finished with a protective non-toxic lacquer. This lacquer is there to protect the finish from turning colors over time. Do not use a polishing cloth, paste or other methods to polish the items, as you will remove the protective lacquer and will have unprotected brass. A damp cloth is all you need to clean the items.
Trinity Antique Copper is a stunning rich antique copper finish. Our brass components are plated with copper and then antiqued to enhance the rich detail of the pieces. A protective non-toxic lacquer has been applied to each piece. Our antique copper finish has a rich shine finish.
Trinity Antique Gold is a beautiful rich antique gold that has been achieved through oxidation and is not plated. A special non-chemical process is done to the brass after oxidation to achieve its shine. A protective non-toxic lacquer finish has been applied to each piece. Our antique gold finish is a very elegant and sophisticated finish.
Trinity Antique Silver utilizes real silver in the plating process. This finish has been antiqued to enhance the rich detail of the piece. A protective lacquer has been applied to this process to protect the finish from tarnishing. Using real silver allows this finish to be bendable without the plating popping or cracking. This color has a beautiful shine finish.
