Brass is one of the most popular materials for making base metal jewelry chain preceded only by steel. Brass is used because of it's heavier weight, which gives a nice "perceived" value. Brass chains plate up easier than most other metals. That's not to say that they look any different once plated, just that they plate up easier.

Brass is a great choice for any necklace or bracelet chain unless the item is extremely small in which case soldered brass would be your best base metal option.
