Make opponents think twice by rolling out these Solid Copper Dice with Diamond CZ stones!
We're setting out to make some of the highest quality gaming accessories, and we can't leave behind dice with Diamond CZs set as the pips! Recently we did a campaign with Emerald stones and have had so many people asking if we could create some with Diamond CZ stones, we are wanting to make it happen!
Creating these dice:
For the creation of these dice, they first start out on a CNC mill. The dice sides will be precision cut. Once the copper cube is created, a smaller tool will be used to drill in the holes where the stones will be set, having to manually turn the dice 6 times for each face. With the use of a CNC, slightly different depths of holes can be programmed to help balance the dice, while making it undetectable on the finished product.
Hand Setting the Stones:
After all the holes are made, the stones can be set. A high strength joint compound will be used to securely fasten the stones to the dice in order for them to not come loose. The holes are designed to be just slightly deeper than the stones, this way the stones won't stick above the face of each side. This will both help protect the stones as well as reduce the shock on them when being rolled.
Jewelry Inspired Dice:
These are truly a time intensive piece to create these dice and made more like a piece of fine jewelry rather than a traditional dice. Like my other projects, I choose to make these out of pure copper to give the dice a heavy, quality feel that the holder will notice. These are intended to be a specialty dice/ display piece, but is designed to withstand everyday use.
A Dice that's "set" apart from the rest, 21 times!
Truly impress your friends and co-workers with these amazing stone inlay dice. Each dice has 21 individually set stones, making the numbers one through six on each side of the pure copper dice. The creation of these will entail the marriage of modern machining as well as old world craftsmanship, producing a stunning product like no other on the market. Each dice is made out of solid, pure 999 copper and is hand set with 21 Diamond cubic zirconia stones.
Risks and challenges
Since we have recently done a similar project with different stones, we have already had a chance to work out most of the bugs. Our biggest holdup before was varying heights of the stones, due to the nature that they are individually cut stones. To not have this be a hold up, we will anticipate ahead and order in extra stones so this isn't a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
