You knew it had to happen some time. Someone builds rings with Lava Elf dice:

Etsy is just "gathering place" for artists to sell stuff. Pat (my wife) has stuff up on Etsy. I'll have to show her this.....

Guys,


Earrings, charm bracelets, and simple necklaces are easy to do. Like Cliff said, the proper finding(s), E6000 cement, and stringing materials and there you are. I could probably crank out a bunch of these using "junk" monsters or other damaged dice for sale at gen con and would be willing to put them up on my Etsy and Artfire shops. Drilling holes in dice would be very tricky. If you know someone that could do that, there are more items that could be made.

If you don't mind a little risk its not hard to do. Just have a really tight grip and if the drill bit... bites and starts spinning the die around get your fingers out of the way! it smarts, trust me I know.

Also, drill from both sides or put some tape over the die or the exit hole tends to chip.

we've done keychains and ear rings on studs or chains before.

its fun!

Drilling holes in the dice is simple (with the right tools). A drill press and the right clamp, and it's done no fuss. I don't have a drill press right now, but I have a big bench vise which can be fitted with a rubber facing. Then it's just a matter of holding the drill steady.

Was going to say the same regarding drilling. I did this back in 6th grade -- made a d20 from resin and then drilled a hole at one point where the keychain went through.

Resin tends to be more brittle than the proper plastic that these dice are made of, by the way.

So if a [then] 12-year old can do it, I'm pretty sure most of us can Smile

Although I admit -- I used a drill press then.

In highschool, when we moved on to metalworks, we made a 6-sided die keychain. It was the same thing, except that you had to keep the contact areas well-oiled (same drill press) to prevent any nasty metal dice from flying around the workshop.

If only I had known about Dragon Diceā„¢ then, you could bet I would have made an attempt to chisel in an entire DD unit rather than having the typical, boring pips.

All this drilling, chipping, glueing and mistreating of those precious Dragon Diceā„¢ makes me sad... Crying or Very sad

I guess that I have a slightly jaundiced view of certain flavors of Dragon Diceā„¢. Surprised Sorry it makes you sad. Given the number of dice from the first 4 races and "extra" monster dice lying around, this seemed a way to remove some extra weight from the second floor of our house and promote the game in a different manner. It's not like I'm proposing doing this with an original Unseelie or anything like that Smile

Wow... knowing vaguely how many dice Chuck has, is it really safe to have them on the second floor of the house? I'd think that you guys would want to have them on a floor that's directly supported by the earth at this point!

Actually the dice are in 2 places. Plus the SFR dice in another place....

My Demon Dice and other non-Dragon Diceā„¢ are on the second floor. My Dragon Diceā„¢ are on the first floor, both near a corner of the house (strongest part of the house frame). The SFR dice are in the semi-finished crawl space right on the concrete slab.

But in truth, our king-size water bed (on the second floor) far outweighs all the dice in the house. Shocked
