Hi, I'm Nicholas Taylor, I've been making chainmail items for about 18 years off and on as a hobby. Recently, I've started adding rubber rings into my chainmail. I must say I love it! It looks cool, it offers padding, has room to stretch out. I could go on and on....

Goals

I have 3 main purposes for running this kickstarter:

1. to raise capital to fund more supplies to make bigger items (shirts, headresses, belts etc.)

2. to offer you the chance to get your hands on a really cool dice bag in the color/s you want.

3. and my own selfish reason that running a project would be awesome!

The Dice Bags

My dice bags are handmade of anodized aluminum and EPDM rubber, which makes them stretchy to help pad and prevent damage to your dice. The rings measurements are 16 gauge thick and the inner diameter is 5/16". Each bag can hold approximately 70 dice. Currently the drawstrings in the pictures are leather, the end product drawstring will be paracord. Which will be available in different colors.

Risks and challenges

My main challenge I will face is ordering the materials. The company that I order my materials from is amazing, but sometimes the stocks run low on certain colors. If a color that I happen to need ends up being back ordered, those who pledged for those metals will be notified of the delay.

The other challenge would be if this project really kicks off. Making the delivery dates could become an issues. My solution is to have my lovely wife, Mindy, and my gaming buddy, Josh, to help out.
