Brass oranment that was annealled before the final dapping operation.


What does annealing mean?

To anneal is to heat glass or metal and then cool slowly to prevent brittleness. This preventing of brittleness makes the metal we work with "softer" and more malleable allowing us to avoid splitting and breaking of the brass, especially with our extraordinarily dapped filigrees. Several examples of filigrees needing annealing before dapping can be found in our filigree catalog page 3.
