Brass Jewelry Handmade by Women

Brass Jewelry Handmade by Women

Lately, I have been seeing lots of beautiful brass jewelry pieces. Definitely the inspiration for this post, I of course had to find brands created by women. 😍

Below is a list of gorgeous pieces! The 3 brands I list are small businesses so pieces do sell out.

I hope this post inspires you to tap into your creative side today. 😘


  • Brass jewelry

  • Founded by Shayba Muhammad

  • Handmade in St. Louis, MO

Mahnal sheds light on the gentle, insightful, and poetic beauty of Islam and the Arabic language. Many pieces are named in Arabic, imbuing each piece with a special message or characteristic of empowerment for the wearer.

I want wearers to feel just as positive, confident, and inspired as I do when I'm designing for them. I started designing as a way to express and share my passions in life after studying design at the Institute of Art in Chicago. I worked as an accessory specialist and visual merchandiser focusing in jewelry for three years before deciding to take everything I had learned to launch Mahnal in 2016. Based in St. Louis, I work to continue my mission to inspire and adorn.

I have developed a crazy admiration for all the 'makers' out there - we are among some very talented people here in the Green Mountain State and I feel lucky to have been encouraged and inspired to create and design.
