Do you want to see me on Etsy? I'm thinking about it, but I need to hear your answer^^ All my stone-painting necklaces are one-of-a-kind things, I won't make the same one again. Only something in similar style, but not the same.
So I had a customer on Etsy ask me to make a silver dragon with little rag-doll style legs.
And here he is.
I think it's pretty cute, to be honest, but I don't know if the legs would work on the larger dragons. They're cut on the hatchlings, but the bigger guys...well, this will require testing. I shall make legs for one of my own at some point.
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.
