Brass is very common in French marquetry of the past. It was cut on the chevalet or frame saw then and can easily be cut on a scrollsaw. Look for jewellers’ blades in the 60 tip range. For marquetry at least it is always annealed. It’s not easy to find in the hardware store but annealed brass can be found online.
French marquetry in the day was in the area of 1.5 mm (1/16”).
