Caught in Time



How often have we found ourselves running against time, wishing there were more than 24 hours in a day?
Here's a piece inspired by the mad rush of everyday life, of us handcuffed by the many pressing deadlines & due-dates...
let this be a visual reminder (a fashionable one!) to take time to breathe & relax, the yellow + white as symbols of refreshment & relaxation.

Or... A tongue-in-cheek gift for a friend who is always late for appointments? ;)

Heartland Series



We girls love flowers & hearts, (indisputable fact!), so this series celebrates that with a psychedelic range of M&M lookalike matte heart beads (yum!), heart frame that is sure to stand out, padlock heart charm to symbolise a bond that is eternally secure, flower for a touch of femininity & all time favourite message charms.


Heartland Bracelet Design



A series that is easily customizable to suit your recipients' colour preferences
 All you need to choose are 3 things (see below), 
while the bracelet chain, heart frame & padlock heart charm are already included in this package.



* bigger pics here: Bead. Flower. Charm
Out of stock heart bead: Light Pink & Dark Green
white & cream flower will be slightly different
► New: Red flower is now available

Since these are made with gifts in mind, I came up with a discount structure that is designed to be budget-friendly :)

buy more save more ;)
especially when postage is at a flat rate and you will be given a gift box for each piece.
Every piece will also be custom adjusted according to wearer's wrist measurement so don't worry about ill-fitting!


note: batch discount only applies to a single order & strictly for the Heartland series only.
eg. buying 3 pieces first round and another 2 more the second round do not qualify for the 5-14pcs price range.



psst... gifts that are given when there isn't a special occasion in sight makes the best surprises
come show your love to your girlfriends :)


questions & orders, please email me at craftedbymei@gmail.com
 thank you!
