Ornamental Brass Stampings
I have added a new product to my Tiger Bead Store. Brass Stampings.
Stampings are "charms" that are stamped out of flat sheets of brass or other metals such as steel or silver. A large press is used to exert thousands of pounds of force to smash the flat metal sheet to a hardened steel decorative form. The brass or other metal, then takes on the form of the steel shape. Brass is often the metal of choice because the metal is inexpensive and very malleable to intricate designs.
These stampings are often times antiqued, but also are available raw. Either way, the intricacy of the design is incredible!
These are just a sample of what Tiger Bead Store has available. Stampings are perfect to use in jewelry designing. Go to the bead store and see what other beautiful stampings are available.
