MY NAME IS KATIE
I'm a music therapist by day, and an RPG aficionado by night. I'm a born and raised Canadian, but I moved to Arizona with my family for school, and then moved up here to the Indianapolis area! I started playing DnD when I moved in with my husband in the summer of 2019, and since then I've been in multiple campaigns, played in a Star Wars RPG stream, and run an online gaming convention. And of course, started making dice!
I began making resin dice in February of 2020, and fell in love with the craft instantly. It's been not only a great creative outlet for me, but I've loved capturing moments and drawing inspiration from elements like popular media, spells and characters!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the dice weighted?
I, like all handmade dice makers, do my very best to create a balanced product for a fair game. Most of my inclusions and very light, and the only way to truly "weight" a die would be to put in something that's heavier than the resin. The only way for you to get truly "balanced" dice would be to get casino grade dice and toss them after a few uses. So handmade dice are just as balanced as any factory-made set!
Why are there marks on my dice?
Unfortunately, handmade products are rarely free from imperfections. Some of my dice may have mold lines I couldn't fix, a small surface bubble or scratches from sanding. However, all the dice in my shop are 100% rollable and I would never sell anything that I wouldn't be proud to have in my own collection!
Where did you get your molds?
My molds are handmade using silicone and custom resin-printed masters from Druid Dice and Arcana Cast. Because the logo and branding are mine, I will not be selling my molds.
Why are handmade dice way more expensive than factory dice?
When you buy resin dice, you're not only purchasing a product, you're paying for the love, time and effort went into designing, testing, creating and finishing the dice--often several hours of work. If you're interested, I made a TikTok about the cost breakdown!
