Brass Charm Pictures are not actual size- to get accurate size, read measurements.
This lily of the valley charm was the perfect touch to this microscope slide mailer cover. It is
covered with Graphics 45 paper, the center part is raised on some glue mounts and distressed with some of the new Tim Holtz
Distress ink colors. The lily of the valley was adhered using Ranger Accents. It is located on the brass charms
flowers page but represents what you can do with any brass charm.
I love the ornamental designs you can get in brass charms.
The metals prices on the stock exchange have been going up all year and I am told there will be another
increase in charm prices at the beginning of 2007. Even still, I think charms are a great value for their cost.
You could go hog wild with some charms fetching over $100 for a gross-and they are incredibly beautiful but we aren't
that extravagant here - yet, ha ha!
This sample uses square wire and is hammered. I added a embossed heart to the center. This
is not the same heart as below, but this heart can be used in the same way.
Textured Brass Heart Charm~ This is a versatile charm. It comes textured and
raised on the front side. It has a hole at the top. It is great for books, cards, scrapbooks, etc. but I also
lends itself well for jewelry making. You can add a small jump ring or wire through the top and use in earrings and
pendants. You can layer another charm with it or a smaller metal shape or bead(s) too. It measures slightly
larger than 3/4" in length and a little larger than 3/4" at its widest point across. It is solid brass so the finish
will not chip.
Package of 2 heart charms.
Decorative, Ornate Fan Shaped Element Charm~ This is a great shape to use in many ways. It has
rings on each end so that you can add it to scrapbooks, cards, paper, books etc. with ribbon, chain, string, cording,
etc. If you don't want the rings, simple fix- just cut them with a pair of nippers or the Tim Holtz scissors and file
the edge smooth. You can even use a nail file to do that. At the top and center, you could add a Swarovski crystal
or rhinestone for extra punch. You could add paper or a special bead or stone, paint it with nail polish and more to
enhance it. It has a wonderful ripple shape all along the bottom. You can color those with nail polish or any
metal coloring application you have on hand. Use it under a title or picture to add special emphasis to that item.
Many uses-just get your imagination going on it.
It measures approx. 1 1/2" from ring to ring and approx. 1/2" at
its highest. Turn it upside down and you have a nice starburst or sunrise look too. Pkg of 4 charms.
Brass Ornate Circle Charm~ This is a beauty. It is ornately decorated with flowers & scroll
work. The charm measures approx. 1" in diameter and the center, cut out portion measures approx. 1/2". It is just
a pretty piece and will add a real pop to your project. Not sure how to explain it but it is hollow in the back, so
if you put 2 pieces together it would be round like a tire. It has a lot of depth and definition. I have a picture
of what worked with it- my new projects. A pendant or pin that has been hand beaded around the center of the brass
charm and then to hide the threads, I added another charm on top. Sold per piece.
Brass Charm Fancy Swirly Drop~It is all in how you like at it- I have it shown with the ring at
the bottom, but you can turn your monitor upside down and see it with the connector at the top. You could add to a domino
or other project with the ring at the bottom to add a nice Swarovski crystal or other bead or charm. You can also
cut the ring off and use it simply as a decoration on a domino, book, bottle cap, scrapbook, card, etc. You can also
use it as an embellishment and add a flat backed crystal over the ring for some added bling. Very versatile.
This charm measures approx. 13/16" wide and approx. 5/8" high. Pkg of 4 fancy drops.
|Corrine Brass, Clay & Crystal pendant
This pendant was made using a round brass frame with rope decoration around it. I mixed a 2 part
epoxy clay and used it for the center- a copper color but looks like leather close up. I added peridot colored
crystals around the perimeter and at the top and bottom of the brass charm in the center- which is the brass charm shown above.
I removed the small brass ring on the one above and put a bit of a dap to it to make it a bit round like the shape of the
clay. I also cut the ring from the large round frame and replaced it with a glue on bail.
|Corrines "Charming" Earring
This earring- or could be used as a pendant, was made using a mother of pearl disc bead, hole drilled
top to bottom. I adhered the charm to the disc using Claudine Hellmuth matte medium.
Charms are a versatile medium for just about any project.
Ornate Swirly Enhancer Brass Charm~This and the style below are my new favorite charms. What fun
you can have with this charm. You can add it to a project with a brad, or use the holes to add some rhinestone bling,
use it in conjunction with a silk flower, turn it so the ring is at the bottom and kind of looks like a tree or pretty fern,
turn it on its side with the ring facing to the left and reminds me of a peacock plume-this thing really speaks to me!
What does it say to you? It measures approx. almost 1 1/4" from top to bottom and approx. almost 7/8" at its widest.
Just beautiful! Packge of 4 charms.
Ornate Swirly Wings/EnhancerBrass Charm~This is another charm that I just see so much potential in.
It could certainly be a light and airy wing, another peacock plume or fancy bird wings, silk or paper flower enhancer, just
let your imagination run away with it. You can add some rhinestone bling to the rings on it too. It measures 1
3/16" long and apporx. 1/2" at its widest. Pkg of 4 charms
Gee, I hate to repeat myself....but you can create such one-of-a kind embellishments with brass charms.
This charm had some black rhinestones added to it and just gives it a whole different look.
Tiny Art Deco Triangle Drop Brass Charm~There is just something about triangles that you have to love.
Even though this is small- measuring approx. 1/2" high including the ring and approx. 5/16" at its widest-it has a lot of
"wow" to it. Comprised of 3 triangles, small at top, large and triangle cut out, it could be used also as an arrow-
with tip pointing to a word, face or object on your project. Use as a dangle on jewelry or from books, safety pins,
Tim Holtz trinket pins, etc. Use it in conjunction with other brass charms-possibly on the brass blanks. The small
triangle on the top is smooth and the larger triangle has a textured cross hatch pattern on it. It is just very eye-catching.
Sold per package of 6 pieces.
|Corrines Brass Charm Domino
Ornate 3 Loop Charm~I just love when you get something and it is so much better than what you expected.
This is what I thought when these arrived. They just look like fun. I have added a picture of them verical and
also horizontal because I think your mind will see different uses depending on how it is placed. It measures approx.
3/4" high and approx. 1/2" wide. Each loop has some raised design on it but especially the middle loop. You could
weave ribbon, cording, etc. through the loops, use jump rings to hang some additional charms or other things as it is placed
horizontally, if you have a stamp or design large enough, use it placed horizontally as a design element-like on a woman's
dress or clothing, just add it underneath a word or phrase to bring additional attention to that---you are only limited by
your imagination and remember--imagination is like a muscle on your body- it gets better the more you use and apply it...so
no muttering under your breath that you don't have imagination!
Pkg of 4 charms.
|Sue Anne McConnell Sample
Here's a lovely sample made by Sue Ann McConnell of www.toodlesocks.com
. I have several other pieces of her work spread throughout the charm pages. They are so unique. I hope
she inspires you too.
Ornate "All in One" Brass Charm~ I call it "All in One" because I think it can look Asian or Egyptian,
Mayan, floral, very versatile and it's just plain pretty! It measures approx. almost 2" long and approx. 1/2"
wide. Display it vertically or horizontally. Great for accent on a card or scrapbook page, altered books, boxes, frames,
etc. Check out the sample on a domino right below. Pkg. 4.
|All in One Charm on Domino by Corrine
I took a domino class from Denise Landa at the Cincinnati, Ohio stamp store, Stamp Your Art Out. We did a domino
with alcohol inks and sprayed with silver webbing spray by Krylon. I liked it but it needed something so I just Weldbonded
that lovely All in One charm to the domino and now I just love it!
Fancy Brass Ornamental Decoration~ I love this one. It is so ornate and looks so elegant. It
will be a great embellishment on cards, scrapbooks, altered books, etc. but also on boxes, close to the bottom or on
the corners. You can adhere with your favorite adhesive or Crafters Pick Ultimate, Wedlbond or Incredibly Tacky.
It measures approx. 1 5/16" wide and approx. 7/8" high. Pkg. 6
This rusted pendant uses 2 of the charms on this page- the medallion below and the lightning like charm
on this page. I have also used a blank round disc as a platform for these items. The brass medallion has been
colored using nail polish, let dry and then sanded off the higher points of the charm. It also has a small crystal adhered
to the center. One of the bail mounts I carry was adhered to the pendant.
Ornate Brass Medallion~ I hesitate to call this medallion by a name such as "Old World" or any other
descriptive phrase because I didn't want to pigeon-hole it into one category. I see many different influences when I
look at it so I think it would work well for many projects. It measures approx. 7/8" in dimater and is slightly domed.
Use your favorite adhesvie for this one. Would look great on boxes as a border. Pkg 6.
|Sue Anne McConnell Sample
This is another sample from Sue Anne McConnell of www.toodlesocks.com
. I liked all the sample pictures she sent but I love the medallion charm so this one really speaks to me and I like
how she antiqued the brass charm.
This was a canvas ornament picked up at a post Christmas sale. It was covered with Studio brand Gesso
(from Claudine Hellmuth) and painted, stamped and the floral brass charm added for accent.
Brass charms are a great way to add a little boost to just about any project.
Brass Ornamental TearDrop Style Charm~ This charm measures approx. 1 1/4" high and approx. 11/16" at
its widest part. It has a ring for adhering with small brads, ribbons, etc. The design has swirls on the side
and is raised with small beads adorning each side. It looks really cool to put three together in a design like one in
center with ring down and then the other two flanking it and those rings meet in the center. It would be a great way
to bring attention to a particular picture or item on your project. Pkg. 3.
|Metal Washer Necklace using the Flower Charm below.
Fancy Brass Open Flower Charm~ This charm measures approx. almost 7/8" in diameter and
fits just inside a quarter for a better idea of size. Choose your favorite flower stamp that has a pretty stem
and leaf on it and mask the flower when you stamp and insert this beautiful charm where the flower should be for a cool look
on your projects. It can also double as a snowflake-but we probably don't want to be reminded of that. Position
3 or 4 in a row for a great border!. Could also be used as a connector. Pkg. 6
This sample uses the brass charm above as the base inside this round charm. Then flat backed pearls
were added around the perimeter.
Brass Charms can be used in so many ways.
Ornate Brass Fancy Flourish Charm~ This beautiful and classy flourish measures approx. 7/8" long and
approx. 3/8" at its widest at the top and bottom of the flourish. This charm will enhance the beauty of any card,
book, scrapbook, box, journal, etc. It is a bold charm \, flat on the back and has a beautiful leaf like look in the
Package of 4.
Brass Ornamental Accent Bar~ This gorgeous piece measures approx. 4" wide and approx. 5/8" wide.
What a wonderful way to accent your scrapbooks, cards, books, altered art, etc. It has a wonderful cross over flourish
design in the center and accented with flowers and leaves on each side. This charm is also a great way to dress up an
inexpensive frame- you can center it on the top and bottom or bottom of a flat frame (sides too, if you wish). Pkg
|Use Staz-On ink to stamp on the brass tag charm
Brass Dog Tag Charm~This tag measures approx. 1" from top to bottom and approx. 1/2" wide. It
has a pre-drilled hole at the top so you can easily add to your projects. You can also adhere it to a project with your
favorite Articus Studio glue. You could also engrave this tag, the engravable area is about 3/4" long - inside
the perimeter line that is etched on the tag. Pkg. 6
Brass Ornate Floral Charm~ This one is a little different from the regular brass color, it has
a reddish tint to it- very pretty and different. I think this will be a wonderful accent to a picture or stamped image.
You can adhere with your favorite Articus Studio adhesive and also, since it has a ring at the bottom, or top- depending on
your persepective, you can add a jump ring or wire and dangle a bead from it for more impact. It measures approx. 3/4"
at its widest and approx. 3/4" high including the ring. This charm also makes a nice statement hanging from the bottom
portion of your larger dominos. Pkg of 3. (See sample below)
Using a formica sample from the hardware store, I applied Tim Holtz Tissue tape to the left side, the clock and chain
are from the 7 Gypsies rub on collection and a square of Graphics 45 paper and this wonderful charm.
|Corrine's formica sample using brass charm
|Sue Anne McConnell Sample
Sue Anne McConnell sent another picture of jewelry she has created with brass charms from Articus Studio. Her items
are so unique and such an inspiration. I hope you enjoy it too.
Fancy Brass Swirl~ Who doesn't love fancy swirls, we doodle them every which way we can. This
fancy swirl has ridges for added texture and depth. I think it would look nice to take Aleene's Paper Glaze, put a little
on some foil and add a drop of your favorite color of dye ink refill to it, mix together and brush into the swirl grooves
for a cloisonne kind of look. The color possibilities are endless with so many different dye inks to coordinate to your
project. It has a ring on the top and bottom so you can also use as a connector, or clip the rings to use without.
It lies flat so will adhere with your favorite Articus Studio adhesive. It measures approx. 1 1/16" from top to bottom
including the ring and approx. 1/2" at its widest. Pkg. 3.
Here is a picture of how you can change the look of your charms using the faux enamel technique. Just
take a dime size or smaller dab of Aleene's Paper Glaze and mix with your favorite color of dye ink and paint that onto the
charm. I have one charm that I left as is after I applied the glaze and the other I used my finger and removed the extra
glaze revealing the lines in this charm. Adds a lot of verstility to the charms.
Flowers in Her Hair Brass Charm~I was trying to think of a name for this charm and that old song came
into my head, I think it is called the Flower Girl Song, it goes something like "flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere,
I love the flower girl". This brass charm meaures approx. 1" in diameter and comes with a ring at top, which is easily
removable with a snip of the wire cutters. She can make a nice mold too as the back is hollow. She will definitely
class up your project. Pkg. 4.
Ranger Glossy Accents & Other Dimensional Products
Ornate Brass Dragonly Disc Charm~This charm is slightly dapped meaning it is rounded on the top and
concave underneath. A big glob of glue in the center will hold it nicely in place though. It measures almost 1
1/8" in diameter. The dragnofly is prominently raised and the reeds and water are raised but less prominent. Great
for scrapbook pages, cards, books, altered pieces. Great with any floral, nature or water themes. Pkg of 4 charms.
Filigree Style Flower & Swirls~This ornate charm measures approx. 1" in diameter. It resembles
petals on a flower and has swirlies in between the petals. The open holes allow for a placement of a brad for the center
to hold it in place or many options for colorful rhinestones to set it off. Use it as a focal piece alone or with another
charm or embellishment. Pkg. 6.
Ornate Floral Medallion~ You have to look real close to see that it is a flower with petals and the
center flower stuff which looks like rasied dots on the charm. It is hollow on the back of the charm so it does protrude
out a little on the front. Pretty alone or use in conjunction with another brass charm behind it to give it even
more punch. This charm measures approx. 5/8" in diameter. Pkg 6 charms.
|Sue Anne McConnell Sample
This is a sample sent from Sue Anne McConnell of www.toodlesocks.com

as to uses.
|Corrine's ATC card with teeny tiny fleur de lis charm
This teeny tiny fleur de lis is great for your atc's or other smaller projects.
Brass Sun Face Charm~This stunning charm measures approx. 1 1/4" in diameter. It has the beautiful
rays of the sun jutting out from its pretty sun face. It has a hole stamped in the top ray so that you can adhere with
ribbons, string, etc. The scan blurs the rays because it picks up what is closest to the scanner glass and kind of blurs
things farther away. So it is hard to see from the scan that the rays have a raised center line and both sides descend
from that and the face protrudes from the rays and is hollow in the back of the charm. (I have my computer monitor on
a raised metal platform and was thinking that this charm would really dress that up-so don't think of them just for
your paper projects). Pkg of 4 sunfaces.
Femme & Floral Brass Charm~This beautiful brass charm has a pretty flower at the top and a beautiful
face at the bottom with her hair flowing up the charm towards the flower-gorgeous! It comes with a ring at the top also.
It measures approx. 1 3/8" high and approx. 3/4" at its widest. The area above her face is dapped or rounded.
I think you could even insert a small picture to it or engrave a monogram. Her face is very detailed along with her
hair and flower. It is just a pretty charm. Pkg of 4 charms.
Detail Ornamental Brass Charm Enhancement~Add a special touch to your project with this detailed ornamental
brass charm. It has raised detail and would look great under a picture, stamped image, etc. to really bring attention
to it. Pkg of 4 charms.
Floral Brad Enhancer Brass Charm~This charm can do double duty - first as a brass charm embellishment,
2nd as a brad ehnancer. Just make sure your brad legs fit through the center of the charm- the center opening measures
approx 1/8". The charm measures almost approx 3/4" in diameter and has tiny flowers at each long leg of the charm.
It could also work as a snowflake too. Pkg of 4 charms.
Time Brass Charm~This clock is highly detailed with the numbers and minutes in raised detail.
It has a decorative opening at the top similar to a pocket watch. The hands point to 9:00 o'clock but it is always time
for a charm embellishment! The charm measures approx. almost 7/8" wide and approx. 1" high. Pkg of 4 charms,
Ornate All-in-One Triangle~This is similar to the All In One charm above. I think this charm can
be used in so many applications. First, it is just pretty, so much detail going on and the 4 larger circle parts protrude
out from the charm by approx. 1/8"- so a lot of dimension. It has a ring at the top, which you can use or snip off with
your Tim Holtz Scissors that go from paper, metal, wood, etc. You could add it to a project with the side openings by
adding lace, cording, ribbon, etc. and have it dangle. Of course, use your favorite Articus Studio glue or Claudine
Hellmuth matte medium and adhere it to wood, paper, metal, etc. It measures approx. 1 1/8" high including the ring and
approx. 1" at its widest. Create a great look by assembling 4 charms together to create a square, kind of. You
are only limited to your imagination with this one. Pkg of 4 charms.
Ornate Floral Art Deco Drop~This is not a big charm but it adds a lot of presence to a piece.
It has a trumpet flower like shape to the whole piece, like a slim bell. It has a pretty little flower in the center
and there is another flower design at the bottom. It measures approx. almost 3/4" high and approx. 3/8" at its widest.
Clip the ring from the top or use as is. I think it would be cute at the end of a declaritive sentence to use it as
the exclamation point. Pkg of 4 charms.
Regal Ornate Triangle Brass Charm~This is very stunning with so much detail, flourishes, balls, triangles.
It measures approx. almost 1 3/8" high including the ring and approx. a tad more than 5/8" wide. You can clip the ring
and use the poiint at the end as an elegant arrow to point to a special part of your project, use it along side a beautiful
saying or quote, color the center triangle part with your alcohol inks- so many ways you can use this to create a unique embellishment
for your project. Pkg of 4 charms.
Brass Filigree Ornamental Accent Charm~This charm is pretty on a couple different levels- the filigree
openings, small flower in center, little fleur de lis at the top, very detailed. Use it either as shown or turn it upside
down, even works side to side. It measures approx. 15/16" high and approx. 3/8" at its widest. Add as an elegant
punctuation to the end of a sentence on your cards or books; combine with another flat charm for a unique look, add to the
center of a rubber stamped dress, add to wood pieces to jazz them up- you can take something you think is boring and make
it WOW! with a brass charm. (This picture does not do it justice.) Pkg of 4.
Check out the bottom of this page for a "before & after" of a box using this particular charm.)
Brass Lightning Ring~This one really speaks to me. It reminds me of lightning bolts, also has
an Aztec kind of feel to it or southwest. You can use it to dangle other things from it with jump rings, dangle from
cording, ribbon, etc., adhere it to your project, color the lightning bolts different colors- many ways to create a unique
embellishment for your project. It measures approx. 1 1/8" in diameter. Pkg of 4 Charms.
Brass Shell Charm~This reminds me of a shell and has wonderful subtle detail throughout the swirls but
what it really reminds me of is Princess Leah's hair in Star Wars. I can just see these one on each side of a doll head.
I know, I'm weird, heard it before. This charm measures approx. a little more than 1" in diamter. It is raised
so it will sit high on a project so keep that in mind. Pkg of 4 charms.
Brass Filigree Snowflake/Flower Charm~This charm can be used as a flower, as a snowflake or just
a decorative element. It has open holes on each petal and you can add rhinestones to highlight these areas, maybe some
brads, little buttons, colored UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) in the open area or have some colore paper showing through
from underneath- many possibilities. It measures approx 1" across. Pkg of 4 charms.
Brass Curly & Classy Embellishment Brass Charm~This again is another one I really like and see many
possibilities for. It always amazes me how when I look through the charm catalogs that you may have looked at it 100
times but all of a sudden it is WOW! I like that about the craft things- you can always see something different.
This charm is set up with a round recessed area at the top. You can fill it with rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, glitter,
tiny picture, tiny word or monogram, small button, something grainy like sand, UTEE-ultra thick embossing enamel or regular
embossing powders- many ways to make this one wonderful one-of-a-kind embellishment for your project. The round
recessed area measures 1/4" in diameter across it. The charm measures approx. 1 1/2" high including the top ring and
approx. 1 1/16" wide. Center it under a picture or word to really set that portion of your project off. Pkg of
Bold Brass Ornamental Plate~This is a beautiful statement to add to your project- a class act all the
way! This would be gorgeous on boxes, album covers, book covers, canvas, frames- just about anything. It measures
approx. 2 5'8" wide and approx. 7/8" high. it has beautiful scroll & floral work all around it. Pkg of 2 plates.
