Dice and dice games have been around for a few thousand years, historically made from variety of different materials, bone, wood, stone, metal and ivory. 

Aside from being used in games, dice are a symbol of chance or luck and can hold very strong and meaningful messages.  Our dice are handmade from scavenged and repurposed old iron, in 2 sizes.  To add another layer of meaning, one face of the dice can be engraved (see below).

The specifications for dice are:

  • 25mm square or 20mm square
  • Hand-made from old iron
  • Polished and varnished
  • Approx weight: 120g ea
  • Shipping size: Small satchel

A suggestion: The concept of the dice is to order a couple or more, ie a dice with initials for each partner, maybe add another for a date, maybe one for each of the kids.  You can order in multiples and in different size combinations.  For multiples of the same size, just choose the size and add the quantity you'd like.  For orders combining 20mmm + 25mm in the same order, first choose 20m size with the quantity you require, hit 'Add to Cart' and then choose 25mm with the quantity you require and 'Add to Cart'.

Engraving (included in price) : The dice are engraved on one face (to replace number 6), and can be up to 4 letters which are decorative in style OR a date in the format of 12.2.14. Please tell us what you'd like for engraving in the Customer Note box at checkout. If you'd like your engraving to replace a number other than 6, please advise.  For multiple dice with different sizes, please be specific with engraving message for each dice and size.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How long before the product I like can be shipped?

We keep most of the more popular items we make in stock. If an item is in stock, it may be able to be sent on the day we receive your order, or depending on time of day and any customising, it may be sent on the following day. If you are running short on time, you could call or email us to check what we have available to ship immediately, or ask how long before the item can be made and ready for shipping.

Some of the items that we don't hold in stock are the Jewellery Boxes or Fireside Tools, because these have many options and variables, eg. colour of fabric lining, style of handles and type of tools. Our iron rings also need to be made to size, but as these are quick to make, they may only take an extra day or so.

Caring for Iron & Steel jewellery

Iron is a base metal and is not as stable as gold, silver or stainless steel. When it comes into contact with oxygen in the air or water, it will try to combine with the oxygen to create an iron oxide. We know this as rust. This is the reason why you seldom see iron in its naked state. Iron is protected in various ways: paints, glazes, varnishes, oils and waxes. Your jewellery piece has had a quality clear varnish applied to help protect it.

Your jewellery loves to be worn often. The oils in your skin help to condition the metal much like when you season a cast iron skillet (typically rinse, dry apply an oil and heat it briefly - no soap as that is corrosive). Your iron jewellery can be treated similarly. Keep it dry and rub a little oil occasionally if it was exposed to water.

If it does get wet with substances like soaps & detergents, chlorine or salt water, rinse it with clean water and dry thoroughly using a hair dryer or leave it in the sun briefly. Apply some oil, you can use coconut oil, olive oil, or any other oil safe for cooking. Rub it on and buff it off.

Some people like to hang and display their jewellery. That would be great...as long as you aren't doing so in a steamy bathroom. Water and humidity are its foes.
