Jet of the Day - The Brass Hussy


In case you do not know her, Debbie is from Indianapolis and she runs a shop full of vintage style, nature inspired, costume jewelry handmade with brass, beautiful gemstones and sparkling Czech glass. This past weekend, her squirrel necklace was in the Etsy finds! Needless to say, she has been swamped with orders since then.


Making jewelry is a family affair for our Hussy. Her husband and family all pitch in, and help with printing labels, preparing packaging, and cutting chain to length. Her two boys love tinkering with designs.


Like many of we jewelry makers, Debbie loves buying oodles of vintage brass jewelry at tag sales and thrift shops, but this is not what she uses to create the lovely vintage -inspired earrings, necklaces, lockets, rings, bracelets, and more that you see in her store.



Debbie starts with bright shiny new brass and adds an antique finish you see on her pieces! First, the brass gets cleaned in a tumbler with a dash of soap, then it gets darkened, machine tumbled, and then hand polished to bring out the details. She drills the holes herself and smooths everything with a hand file. In other words, at The Brass Hussy, you will purchase a piece of heirloom quality jewelry that will wear forever!  Debbie loves to work on custom orders, so if you have something in mind, contact her.



 In her generous fashion, in celebration of making the Etsy Finds, Debbie made a treasury featuring her team members  'Woodland Jewelry' by TheBrassHussy
