Styling With Hardware: Using Clips & Pins

These elegant pieces from my Henry Mercer hardware collection offer so much more than their primary function. Here are my tips to enjoy them at their best.

1. Tailors Pin - The Tailors Pin is one of my favourite pieces. Use it as a key chain for your car & house keys. Its size is favourable to a large key set. It’s also great as a curtain tie back in a home or restaurant space.

2. Sutlery Pin - Perfect for a haberdasher's studio, store your favourite fabric samples on here and hang a few of these in your studio from Merchant Nails. These also sit pretty on a table setting. If you have some beautiful leftover fabric that doesn’t quite cover your table – join these together with a few of our Sutlery pins – no need to hide the seam when these beauties are on show.

3. Alchemy Pin - These are perfect for retailers & restaurants – our Alchemy Pins work a treat with all things paper & fabric. Slide one over a bill tray to attach the receipt & business card. Or alternatively use it on a menu as a fancy way to hold the paper to your substrate. Retailers – these are perfect to clip together paper ephemera such as postcards & are a great way to jazz up your signage & add some layering!
