Got a sweet tooth?

If you've been active on Instagram over the course of the pandemic, (as many of us have been!), you've probably caught wind of the breathlessly cute trend of DIY-ing Y2K-inspired accessories with assorted beads, pearls, resin, and polymer clay. Most of these sweet finds actually hail from locked down hobbyists who've carved their own corners, selling customizable necklaces, bracelets, and even rings.

Most homegrown shops feature primarily handmade accessories, so you can imagine the work and love that go into each piece. Hence, if you want to start collecting stackable necklaces, check out our local store picks here! You can find colorful goodies for just fifty pesos. This is a win in our book. 

Alternatively, you can take a look at a similar offerring from esteemed luxury house Bottega Veneta. Did you know that they've released a beaded necklace that retails for over $3000, (approximately P144,000). Yup. We can't believe it either.
