Hairless John :-)

Vacuum the area with a clean vac bag and then search the pick up  :-))

I have one of those Ahem! military Led torches  only round the tenner mark  brilliant ''no pun intended'' the spot beam  is great for finding things even inside models on the carpet  pull up a chair and go square inch by inch Brass should be a doddle to pick out

This works best with pins or scalpel blades
