A wedding clay to remember

Aside from flowers, the cake, the gown, the food, what else will make guests remember your wedding? Souvenirs, of course!
One souvenir shop (if you can call it that) which I just visited late last year was The Beadlady, a quaint "crafts cafe" where beading enthusiasts can choose from a buffet of trinkets and make delightful presents for their female entourage members or souvenirs. Given enough time, the owner of The Beadlady can even craft made-to-order designs made of polymer clay.

Angeli, the owner of The Beadlady, loves making clay cupcakes so if you have a cupcake-themed wedding, you might want to order from her.

Above and below, charms and beads you can use for your souvenirs.

If you're not the crafty kind, you can also purchase ready-made trinkets like necklaces and bracelets.

Below, handpainted shoes and bangles.

Another online site I stumbled upon is Claylettes by Karla & Co. Claylettes makes the most mouth-watering, lip-smacking clay creations, you'd think they were good enough to eat! Some claylicious items they've done are donuts, brownies, cupcakes, cookies, popsicles, ice cream, pies, beverages, pretzels, boxes of chocolates and tiered cakes. Everything made from scratch.
Claylettes also makes souvenirs for baby showers, kiddie parties and other events.
