Chainmaille Dice - D20 by ChainedBeauty Chainmaille Dice - D20 by ChainedBeauty
So here it is, the D20. This one took quite a bit of effort to finish within a week, let me tell you. The rings are a lot smaller (a mixture of 2.5mm and 4mm) and there's just a whole lot more of them. Like the other dice, the numbers on each side is represented by a number of rings, with each side being a different pattern to help tell them apart.

To keep this one solid, there's a much more complex skeleton on the inside, so its a bit heavier than the others.

I decided to use the Japanese 12-in-2 pattern instead of the Orbital Hex Cage for two reasons in particular. The first being that I know this pattern a bit better, and the second being that I have more control over this one. The hex cage is sturdy, but wont hold up as well in the long run, I think. This one, with a reinforced skeleton will keep its shape for much longer.

Anyhoo, its done in time for PAX, so when I get back I'll have a bit of work to do in order to get the D10 and D12 finished.

Here's some detailed shots of different sides: [link]

This one's not going on etsy I don't think. I used silver plated copper and enameled copper for the red, so I'm not sure how well those colors will hold up. Definitely going to make more though, using anodized aluminum.

That's really amazing. How long did it took to you to do it?

About a week and a half or so.

Your patience (or passion, I guess) is really impressive.
How did you started working with chainmaille?

A friend of mine wanted to make her girlfriend a bracelet, and I decided to help. About halfway through making it, he realized he didn't much care for it, and I discovered that I loved making things.

Yeah, mostly likely. Were I to do it, it would be after I made a few, and was confident that I found the easiest way to make it.

How rigid is it?

Completely rigid, thanks to the internal structure. I was tossing it around with a friend when she missed, and it went sailing across the room and hit the wall. The die was fine, no dents or anything.

Couldn't say the same for the wall...
