I have heard of annealing, but why would I want to have brass jewelry findings annealed?
Annealing is a valuable process to the jewelry designer who wants to manipulate the stamped decorative findings and filigrees they are using. It involves heating metal to a certain temperature, which can vary up to its melting point, and then allowing it to slowly cool. In the case of brass, once it becomes malleable, it is easy to bend without breaking, allowing filigrees to be rolled and wrapped around faceted stones, cabochons, beads, wood, glass, and other objects, such as eggs for Faberge’ egg décor. Some Guyot items have to be annealed in order to be dapped. This dapping process will restore some of the temper to the metal, so the jewelry finding may need to be re-annealed in order to be pliable enough for the jewelry designer to manipulate by hand or with a pair of pliers.
