Decent stamped brass can be annealed , and then bent after that , once.
Formed around say a steel round tubing .. to use a soft, like rawhide hammer, to push it around .

I Have Art Metal Pieces made in Copper & non ferrous sheet, now in, like, hemispheres ..
By cold working and annealing repeatedly ..
maybe your jeweler contact can make some badge, custom , just for you.. people do that ..
