How do you showcase your love for your favorite things? Some have shirts printed, others collect vinyl toys, and there are a few who’d fill walls with printouts and framed souvenirs. If you’re into plants and blooms, we’re sure you have a dedicated corner at home where these can shine and add oomph to your space.

However, if you want to bring your favorites with you—wherever you go and even to complete your look, Crafting Time makes it possible with its whimsical pieces of wearable art. Owned by Melody Manalaysay and her mother Lomie, Crafting Time features pieces made using polymer clay, with well-thought-out details.

 

Taking inspiration from fairy tales, Melody creates pieces that highlight trees, flowers, owls, and elements that one would often imagine in a fairy world setting. If you'll visit Crafting Time's Instagram account, it's easy to get lost in a feed featuring tiny fairy houses, charming lamps, blooms, and animals.

 

The succulent necklace costs P450.

Amazed by how many people get crazy over cacti and succulents, Melody thought of creating one using polymer clay. "At least, I'm 100 percent sure it won't die under my care," she says. Crafting the piece proved to be a challenge, but she definitely enjoyed making the little pebbles and coloring the tips of the plant. Loyal followers of Crafting Time and succulent lovers can expect more similar pieces by next year.

 

How cute are these thimble pendants?

Each Crafting Time piece usually takes one to 10 hours to finish depending on the intricacy of the design. The owner shares that she doesn't stop until she's happy with the final output. Melody also admits that most of the designs are free-form and she seldoms draw them first. She makes it a point to jot down and sketch her ideas—even while on the go, so as not to lose and forget them.

 

These lovely pink floral cufflinks with wire inside cost P500 each.

Planning to have an accessory customized? While Crafting Time accepts special orders, Melody shares that an agreement must be met in terms of the design. Most of the time, clients would just give the theme and the colors—and Melody will take care of the design. At the end of the day, the goal is to make the clients happy with the finished product.

Whether you plan to buy one for yourself and give accessories as gifts, here are some of the pieces that caught our eye:
