A fairly quick and easy instructable for those of you who have an intersecting interest in jewelry, board games of chance, and hardcore fastener hardware. …and have a tendency to misplace your pocket 6d when it comes time for you to make critical life changing decisions.

A note,courtesy of 8steve88: opposite sides of the 'die' should add up to 7, I missed that on my iteration, and may need to turn in my geek card, but I'd recommend something of an order like <1,4,2,6,3,5>.

Best of luck!

I made it at TechShop! (tm) (http://www.techshop.ws/)

Nice work. <br>I can't make out from the photos if the sequence of numbers is correct - the numbers on dice, the opposite sides always add up to seven. <br>Good idea for a ring, try to get A4 grade stainless steel as it's more resistant to salt corrosion (sweaty bits) and should be available from a ships chandlers, or I get mine from Amazon, the U.K. site but they should be easily available in the U.S.A. I use M6 size nuts for 550 paracord lanyard beads and bracelet spacers but can get up to M36! <br>Another vote for you. :) <br>
Ah, I hadn't considered the number sequencing! Thanks for the note! I have enough wall thickness to grind it down, but I think it might be easier to start over and just keep this one for display.<br>A sequence like 1,2,3,6,5,4 would work, but it would probably be better or be more fair in case the die nut is off balance to go with something like 1,4,2,6,3,5.<br><br>Thanks for the vote!
<p>Thanks for the inspiration! I made a pair of rings that articulate: https://www.instructables.com/id/Remix-Metacarpal-Armor/</p>
Great idea, I'd have to find a very large nut to fit even my pinky finger.
It's possible! something like the nut from a truck axle could even make a bracelet version! It might be a little heavy though... ;)
HA HA! Tom cat made these (painted in yellow) to catch jerry mouse! Kidding! Nice idea for a ring!
