"Okay so I like creepy things"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The detail in these is amazing. They are small but amazingly detailed and you cant always tell they are skulls unless you really look at them, so I only creep out the observant. I wear them all the time, not just in October.

"Wonderful AND Wonderfully Unique."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I may be writing this review in the middle of October, but these were not a Halloween purposed purchase. They are exquisite in the gentle touch required to carve these skulls, by hand, and not detail is remiss. I do have a fondness for skulls, inasmuch that I have a congenital disorder known as Chiari 1 Malformation (and accompanying syringomyelia). It sounds strange to say Im learning to embrace my skull, but I am. Im managing my symptoms, and I dont mind telling others about it as they inquire, and I just simply find these skulls stunning.
