Title: Gaming Dice Jewelry: Which Do You Prefer?
Post by: EveofAbyss on July 09, 2013, 09:35:37 am
I am working on making beaded bracelets and accessories with gaming dice as pendants and charms, and I am just wondering which piece of jewelry is the general favorite: beaded bracelets or a pendant on a piece of chain/cord for a necklace?

Here is an example of what the bracelets will look like:

And here are some of the pendants that will be on the necklaces:

A vote isn't a commitment to buy anything from me. Just doing some research is all. :)

I don't wear jewelry but I buy it all the time (for the ladies in my life) and I LOVE the versatility of the pendant. It can be a long necklace, or a choker OR if the pendant is light enough you can even make them as earrings. Four sided dice would probably work well as earrings as they are pretty light weight.


Looks great, good luck!

I would like to see the little triangle ones as dangling earrings.  Nothing bigger  tho don't want them to pull on ear to much

Though I have no personal interest in either one of them, I could see Chan loving them both (or hating them both on account of how passionate she is about roleplaying, but I'd bet she'd like 'em).  I'll ask her once I get home from work.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. ^_^

I've been slaving away on building my inventory, so here are a couple progress shots.

Bracelets, in small (left) and large (right).

I'm gonna keep plugging away. I also have a project for a Kumoricon-themed bracelet that I am working on. So, lots of good stuff I'll be bringing with me to con for those who want to wear their geek on their sleeve, lol.

This is just a hobby right now, but with how much fun I am having with it, I may look into getting a table in the future.

For this year, I am going to post photos of everything I have and just take orders that I will deliver during con.

Once I get photos taken, I'll post them and prices and people can pick out what they want. ^_^

You should make some hogwarts colors! Or my little pony ones lol the color die could be the Chris mark and the beads could be the body color.

Wow, they look gorgeous!
Well, the necklace does offer more creative possibilites; but I just love how you designed all these bracelets - I've never seen dice bracelets before and I like the original design.

Perhaps I've missed this somewhere, Eve, but what are the asking prices?  The Chan is intrigued...
