Meet the maker!
This is Mabel; also the clay art maker, the founder and a friendly person. She initially enrolled in an ACCA accounting course, but later decided to turn her passion and hobby into a full-fledge clay-making business – giving people the solution they needed for gifting the best gift!
As a person who has always loved crafts and art making, Mabel was already selling handmade jewelries through her blogshop since 2009. She would often purchase bulks of charms, beads, crystals and other materials to assemble the jewelries. When it occurred to her of the possibility to make her own charms for her jewelries, she didn’t hesitate. She was determined to learn, and so she Googled her way and found a video that taught cupcake sculpting, made from polymer clay. That was the beginning of it all.
After a series of trial and errors, and constructive criticisms from her friends, her sculptures improved. When she finally felt confident to post her creations on Facebook, the responses she received in social media were positive. Her social media contacts started commissioning her to make more; and from that point on Mabel Story was truly established.
Having operated her business since 2012, Mabel keeps her passion burning by appreciating every bit of the learning process, and more importantly, the joy of discovering new things. Every idea presented to her and every interaction she shares with her customers makes the journey more meaningful and experiential. Essentially, the constant supports from local and international customers have enabled Mabel Story to thrive continuously over the years. She lives up to the slogan “Ideas Crafted to Life” because her heart sincerely wants to bring your ideas to life!
“What keeps me going is the learning process, and the journey to discover new things!”
