 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 cubic zirconia stones.  

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.

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.

These are a very time intensive dice and made more like a piece of fine jewelry rather than a traditional dice. Like my past dice project, 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. 

I am initially offering these with Emerald CZ stones, however if we can reach the stretch goals below, I will be able to purchase other types of stones. With your pledge, you will be able to choose from any of the available stones for EACH dice you get.  

If you would like more dice, additional dice can be added to ANY reward level for only $25 each. Just add this amount on to your pledge and it will be calculated in the survey at the end. 

STRETCH GOALS:
     At each tier, the following stones will become available as an option:

$2,500 - Ruby CZ Stones
$5,000 - Amethyst CZ Stones
$7,500 - Sapphire Blue CZ Stones
$10,000 - Diamond CZ Stones

Risks and challenges

With already having done a different metal dice project, I've had a chance to work out most of the kinks and imagine this should go smoothly.
