Corrines Sample using Blank Round Disc Charm


These 6 pieces were painted with gesso, then colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  This was a lot of fun.  The tutorial I watched on you Tube said you should use this brand, the I did the red one with a Derwent colored pencil, they are harder than the Prismacolors and it did fine too.  So if you need a specific color for your brass charms, get the Gesso and the colored pencils out and go to town.

Brass Charms shown are NOT actual size, please use the measurements.
Use your metal stamping letters and numbers on these blanks for a unique charm.  You can also rubber stamp on these charms using your Staz-on Ink.  Great to add other embellishments or charms on top and add to a cool steam punk or industrial chic jewelry project.

A good tip to remember if you are using metal stamps on your brass tags, if you mis-print the metal stamp- set it aside and later cover your mistake with epoxy clay that is readily available in most big box craft stores.


Brass Wing Blank~This is a "oops" blank or a happy surprise my supplier and I came up with.  It is identical to a wing Articus  sells that has a lot of dimension and shape to it, but there was this lonely little blank in the bag- so I called my supplier to see if they were selling it that way- they weren't but they liked the idea- so it is sort of an Articus Studio first- or at least we will claim it.  It measures approx.1 1/8" in diameter and approx, a little over 3/4" high measuring from the top of the win to the base.  It has a nice outline and will be perfect as is or you can use it in your Vintaj Metal Embossing or Etching Folders and have a cool look with texture.  Don't forget the new Ranger Vintaj Patinas to color your metals.
Pkg 4.

You can find the matching Fancy Brass Wing that has wonderful dimension and depth on this page link


Brass Flat Circle with Center Out~This brass plate is  a flat cirlce with the center out and a small top hole.  You can use these for quite a lot of diffeent applications.  You can add some decoration to it and make earrings or a necklace.  Use a metal punch and punch additional holes and wire wrap it.  Use it as a closure for a book.  The brass circle measures approx. 1 1/16" in diameter.  The center cut out hole measures approx. 3/8" in diameter.  You could add a hole over the center and dangle a bead or other item from it.  You could add design by stamping on the metal with Staz-on Ink, cover with paper, add a dimensional glaze on top.  Just limited by your imagination.  Package of 6.


This shows another way to use this charm above.  You can fold it over a dowel or round rod and make a terrific earring or pendant.  This was a spur of the moment endeavor to see what I could do with it- so it is not finished.  I smacked it around with a hammer a little bit and then used some patina from Vintaj and put it on & wiped it off so just the color would be in the indentations of the metal.  Then just ran some wire through it.  I didn't do this sample to actually make anything but to show how useful & versatile charms can be.  Now see what you can do!


Tiny Flat Plain Pendant~ This small, flat, plain pendant is sitting next to a dime.  It measures approx. 3/8" in diameter-not including ring.  I think this would work perfectly for a small doll necklace.  You could add a small gem or some other small item to the pendant and hang from a small cord.  Pkg. 5


Brass Flat Disk Charm~This charm is flat and smooth and made of brass in a gold tone finish.  You can adhere a favorite project onto it, paper, glass, gemstone, clay, etc.  It measures approx. 1" in diameter and comes with a ring at the top.  Rings can be easily snipped off using wire cutters, if you desire a look without the ring.  You can also engrave a word or saying onto it also.  A lot of possibilities.  Pkg. 4 charms


Brass Flat Square Blank Tag with Fancy Corners~Add a photo, picture, pretty paper, monogram, etc. to this tag and then take your dimensional glaze, go along the perimeter of the tag and then fill in with the glaze.  It will protect it and give it a depth that your flat picture or paper does not have.  It measures approx. 5/8" square, the ring would make it slightly higher.  The corners are cut out and just give it a fancy look to it.  Pkg of 4 charms.


Brass Charm Plate~This plate has two pre-drilled holes on each side so you can easily attach with small brads, nails and eyelets.  If you want to adhere using your favorite Articus Studio adhesive- just use a small rhinestone to cover the hole for an added punch.  You could also engrave a word onto it or use your alphabet punches and add a word that way.  This plate measures approx. 1 1/2: wide and approx. 1/2" high.  Pkg of 4 plates.


Brass Charm Blank Disc~You know when I ordered this, I had something specific in mind I had seen on the internet and I did not write it down so now I have forgotten.  Does that happen to anyone else?  You can add your papers, use it as a base with another charm or item on top-maybe an old piece of jewelry, use as a base for a collage- there are many possibilities.  It measures approx. 1 3/8" in diameter.  You could add a hole with a drill or metal hole punch too.  You could also engrave it or add words with metal alphabet punches.
Pkg of 4 discs.


Brass Blank Charm Disc, 3/4"~This is the same kind of blank disc as the one shown above- just smaller, measuring 3/4" in diameter.  Pkg of 6.


Brass Bracelet Link Charm~You can use this charm to build a bracelet, add to a necklace and add beads to it, add it to a project and dangle something from it.  This brass charm comes in a reddish color, almost like copper.  It has 2 loops, one on each end and they have a bit of a twist to them so that if you are using on a bracelet, the link will lay correctly.  You could also engrave a special word on it too.  The link measures approx. 1 5/16" long and approx. 1/4" wide.  Pkg of 4 charms.


Brass Dome Charms~ Think outside of the box with this charm.  What I envision is using dictionary paper and covering the dome with it and then using it as an embellishment on your project.  But why stop at decorative paper- use fabric, ribbon, etc.  Use it as a base and adhere other small objects onto it or other charms and incorporate into your project.  Add ultra thick embossing enamel- now your imagination is working!  The picture shows it both ways- so turn it over and put stuff into it- since it is domed when you use the other side-you can put things into the body of it.   These also fit perfectly into bottle caps.  You can cover the disc with paper, fabric, etc and then put some glaze in the cap and add the disc and gives you a nice rounded, raised look.  It measures 1" in diameter.  (See picture below)  Pkg. 6.


This is a hardware store 2" metal washer covered with Graphics 45 paper.  I then covered a brass disc with coordinating paper, covered with Ranger Glossy Accents and secured it over the center opening of the washer using Ranger Glossy Accents.  I used black Sharpie around the perimeter of the washer and a little Glossy Accents applied with my finger to keep the Sharpie from rubbing off.  I applied a tri-frame hanger to the back-also with Glossy Accents, added a metal silver bead and silk cording.  I saw the washers done on -I think- a DIY video.  But all they did was add the paper and some cording - just very plain and simple- no real WOW factor.  So I ran to the hardware store to get some washers and had so much fun playing with them. 

Brass Dome charm in Bottlecap.


Octagonal Brass Tag Charm~This blank tag has a fun octagonal shape that measures approx. 1" high including the ring.  It measures approx. 7/16" wide.  You can cover it with a picture, decorative paper, stamp on it with Staz-on ink, color it with alcohol inks and then stamp on it-the possibilities are endless.  Pkg. of 7 tags.


Brass Blank Tag Charm~ This charm is completely blank.  You can stamp on it with Staz-On or any other non porous inks.  I sold some round blank tags at one time and one woman loved them, she would emboss on them. This tag is not as thick as the similar love tag above.  It is quite thin so does not add bulk.  It measures approx. 7/8" long and approx. 1/2" wide.  Pkg. 5.



Blank Oval Disc~This measures approx. 1 1/4" high and approx. 15/16" wide.  I have shown it both vertical and horizontal because it would look great either way.  You can stamp on it, texture with hammer, add classy rub-ons like the new 7 Gypsies steampunk rubbings, add Rangler Black/White enamel for a cool look, Stamp words on it with metal stamps, etc.  The uses can be endless and the look will be uniquely yours.  Pkg 4 Discs.


Blank Rectangle Blank Charm~This charm measures approx. 7/16" wide and approx. 5/8" high- not including the ring.  You can add paper to it, stamp on it with Staz-on, add polymer clay, photos, pictures, etc.  Create your own unique embellisment for your art project.  Pkg of 4 rectangle blanks.


Large Square Brass Blank~This blank measures approx. 1 1/8" square.  Perfect for a base to add other charms or embellishments to, great for the Vintaj deco etch or deco emboss dies that are made by Sizzix but compatible with other machines.  You can use our metal hole punch pliers (see below) to add holes to dangle beads or other items from.  Sold in  a package of 4 blanks.  You can use alcohol inks to change the color, coming in Feb or March of 2012-Vintag has partnered with Ranger with some cool patina glazes and you can add dark patina with liver of sulphur or some other househole products. 


Blank turned on its side

Blank Rectangle Charm~This blank measures approx. 1 1/4" high & approx. 3/4" wide.  It is the perfect size to make wonderful pendants or small books and/or book pendant.  Picture it with 2 holes on the top, then some pretty paper, or cut out a shape, add a ornate brass charm to the front- possibilities are endless.  You can also turn it on its side and use it to make a wider pendant or ornament.  Sold per pkg of 4 blanks.


Large Round Brass Blanks~This blank measures approx. 1 1/4" in diameter.  Again, these have so many uses whether you are building a collage adding other brass charms or jewelry pieces to create a lovely pin or embellishment to a book or other project, embossing with the new Vintaj embossing dies, using your pretty papers or other collaged papers to create a wonderful and unique embellishment.  Sold in a package of 4 blanks.

Do you need a handy tool to punch holes in metal discs, charms, bottlecaps, tin and other assorted metal????  Check out this one below.


Metal Hole Punch Pliers, 1.8mm~These are great to punch holes in your bottle caps to make necklaces, bracelets, ornaments, hang charms from, etc.  This tool will punch a 1.8 mm hole in metal sheet stock up to 20 gauge; ideal for cold connections and creating pendants, creates a smooth hole with no rough edges or dents in sheet, extra long jaws for extended reach and a bonus replacement pin included. 
I used this on some of the samples I recently posted and worked great.  I am a tool junkie anyhow and I do have other tools for punching holes like the Crop-a-Dile and the rectangle bar shaped hole punch that will punch on both ends- don't know what technical name is- both of thes work wonderful but they don't work very well on the bottle caps.  So this tool is invaluable for them.  You can also punch holes in bottle caps using a wood block beneath you and a nail- and I have- but this is so easy and clean and sweet.
You can also use this for punching holes in brass blanks- works great and it is a very clean punch.   It comes with instructions on the back of the package-especially for using the gauge guard (which is the back screw like thing closer to the handles).    Great for use in creating holes for cold connections too.

Metal Hole Punch Pliers are also available in a 1.5mm size.


Using one of the brass charm frames, I cut Friendly Plastic (avocado, black & turquoise) into shapes, put them in the frame, put the frame on a griddle over the burner on the stove and kept it there until it melted, moved it and cooled it. 
You can use your brass charms and many products to create wonderful and unique embellishments for any project.


I used the large rope trimmed brass charm frame and cut Friendly Plastic in a specific design.  This was my first attempt and although I am not real thrilled with how it turned out- it was my first one and I was rather clumsy with it but I did learn some things.  After I had let it cool for a couple minutes, I wanted to see if I could stamp into it- I could (wasn't sure so I did not have the stamp positioned better).  The impression came out very good.  It did not stick to the stamp, but I think I may have some Staz On ink on the stamp next time for a litte more contrast.  I tried to create some contrast on the stamped fleur de lis with alcohol ink pens.  I got it to show a little more detail.  The black Friendly Plastic on the sides was not as shiny as I would have liked it to be so I ran the alcohol ink pen over it and it brought out a nice shine.  Doesn't matter what color- it brings out the shine and gloss.  I was using an aw with a pointed tip to move the piece around so I decided to see if I could get some peaks in the avocado color by tapping it into it.  It did peak but after leaving it say on the heat, it melted back down again.  You can pull and mix the colors, you just need some tools to hold the charm down and move the plastic at the same time. 
So I think I will experiment with it more.  I like the colors, I like how it melted and was overall pleased with it.
Have fun!
