New magnetic brooches from Miss Milly

Miss Milly, the British brand for gorgeous, colourful jewellery and scarves, has launched a capsule collection of seven magnetic brooches. In striking, bold designs, six of the brooches use silver-coloured metal and are inlaid with colour, and the seventh is in matt silver. 

But the over-riding appeal of these lovely pieces is the magnetic clasp. No fiddly pins, no danger to fingertips or other body parts and a magnet makes them easily transferrable between coats and jackets, bags and hats. You can even use them on scarves.

“Brooches have been a great seller for us over the past couple of years,” says Sarah Watmore, founder of Miss Milly. “And the magnetic ones have had a fantastic debut. We have them in colours to tie in with the other jewellery so that retailers can create co-ordinated displays and their customers can have matching pieces.”

A date for the calendar that is unmissable is 19-21 Jan 2020, when Scotland’s Trade Fair takes place at the SEC. This is a Show that is not just about buying but has so much more to offer with awards, workshops, networking and talks among the many added extras.

Nothing beats the actual face-to-face interaction that visits to Trade Shows facilitate, where buyers can meet with suppliers and where they can feel the quality of products, and choose colours, ranges and sizes. But Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring endeavours to offer more, as for many buyers it may be the only trade show they visit in a year.
This Show aims to inspire with its Launch Gallery – a hotbed of creativity and innovation where 30+ young producers will showcase their wares. It also aims to bring out originality with its upmarket Craft Gallery, with genuine handmade products.
