Taking closeup pictures of brass - how to?

Periodically I find the need to take a detailed picture of a piece of brass. Often in the context of a post here for something I need clarification on. But it is always a frustrating experience.

I've got a reasonably modern small digital camera and it is just awful at getting the focus right. It always seems to focus more on the background than the brass. I suppose this might be because the brass tends to be long and skinny and therefore doesn't come across as the major component of the scene. I dunno.

Anyway, I was wondering if there are any camera experts around here that might have some helpful tips on how to do this thing correctly. Background, lighting, camera setting, distance-from-brass, that sort of thing.
