    I ordered this largely because it made me think of that sweet fight scene from Gravity Falls between Mabel and the unicorns. And since I do have the funko doll version of Mabel from that exact fight, I kind of had to get this.

    I'll most likely use this as a decorational piece along side either the Mabel funko doll or to decorate a Gravity Falls poster.

    Many thanks to the seller for having such a lovely collection to choose from. Everything is so well designed. I would definitely recommend buying from here if you've found a piece you really like.

    A cute piece that'll be perfect for October this month. Also if you're clothing has some bright colours to it, you could wear this to add to the look.

    I have not tested the clasp on the necklace part, but as seen in my ace flag charm review, that is an easily solved minor issue.

    Would recommend if you want adorable accessories. Never thought I'd ever purchase food jewelry, but here I am for the cake.

    My absolute favourite of the three I purchased. The ace flag is very special for me, so it being included on an adorable cake charm made this an instant purchase for me.

    The charm is very well made and is feels light when wearing. The only part I can't say I'm fond of is the clasp of the necklace. Putting pressure on the clasp's handle seems to have made it not want to fully close anymore. It likes to slide open even when you shut the handle.

    I would recommend if you have a necklace that lets you add pieces and doesn't have any issues to use that for any acrylic charms you want to wear.

    Other than that one minor problem, I'm still thrilled with my purchases. I've never had acrylic charms before, and getting to wear the ace flag in the form of a cute piece is really awesome.

About

The darker side of cute since 2008!

CranieYums is Southern Californian based. While wearing handmade skull hair bows to Disneyland on Bats Day (www.batsday.net), I was approached many times being asked where they were sold. With strong arts and crafting backgrounds, skills were combined to bring you handmade skull hairbows and more; the products of CranieYums.

Send me a convo and I'll see what I have in stock. Not all colors and patterns are listed.

F.A.Q.'s

Q: What are these creations made of?
A: I work with polymer clay, an oven-bake clay you can find at Michael's and most craft stores. It's usually meticulously embellished, accented with pigments, glitters, inclusions, cabochons, etc and glazed with UV resin for a glossy and protective finish.

Q: Are CranieYums signature skulls made from a mold?
A: This is the question asked most. The answer is no. While it would be ideal and super easy to reproduce CranieYums skulls at a faster rate with a mold, being completely handmade is what gives them their charm! Part of the shopping experience for customers is picking out the "face" they like best. Each one is hand-sculpted giving them their own personality! Since expanding the line away from just skulls, I've have dabbled with silicone flex molds to give you more options. But the original CranieYums skulls will always be sculpted by hand.

Q: I don't see what I want. I saw it at a show. Where is it? Can I still buy it?
A: If there is a color or style you don't see, I may have it anyways. Not every item I sell is going to be available in my Etsy store, so if you have questions about existence or availability of anything, just drop me a line at: cranieyums [!at] gmail.com
