So, I've had all these awesome dice sitting around for almost a year, since I bought them at Comic-Con last year. I've been toying with the idea of splurging on a dremel, but today in AC Moore, I stumbled across a cheapo craft drill, and figured I might as well give it a shot. The drill is meh, but it did more or less what I wanted it to. A little later, I came out with these!

LOOOOVE these! Going to Vegas next month... I think these are definitely in order for the gals!!! Did you drill through the whole die? Maybe across a corner or edge?? (If you don't mind me asking!)

My drill bit wasn't long enough to drill through the entire thing, so I just drilled in about half an inch, made a loop with a headpin, and superglued it in. It's held up so far, hopefully it stays that way. Tongue

Love them!  Now if I had jewelry findings, I could make some out of some lovely d10's I have!  Cheesy
