Highlighting the Up-and-Comers of the Dice World.
When buying from larger brands, you get what they have available. When working with small businesses, the chances of them offering custom commissions are greatly increased! Those makers not only sell dice that speak to you, but some offer dice that are made JUST. FOR. YOU!
The Hub prides itself on supporting small businesses no matter their size – whether they’re already well known in the community, or if they’re just starting that journey. Knowing how easy it is to miss those smaller, newer brands, The Alchemist Circle brings you a list of outstanding Hub dice makers that you should check out.
So, in no particular order, here are a few brands from this quarter that you may have missed!
Spectacular swirls of petri and space is what you’ll find at Serene Creations. A single-person shop working their way through school while finding time to create amazing pieces of dice art!
One part of a two-person team, this maker features dice with various inclusions and artistic swirls. Dice isn't the only thing on the menu as they also offer many other items such as keychains, coasters, foil prints and wall decor!
Specializing in faux-stone dice, from a sketch in a book to rolling on your table, each set from Jodie's Dice Farm is made by hand by one artist (or Farmer). Using Jesmonite, a fine, concrete stone-like compound, they're able to produce sets that look like marble or stone, with unique patterns that are different every time.

Artful swirls of petri pours and delicate wisps of shimmering gold, add to that vibrant holo foils and a sprinkling of glitter and you have a set of Outer Realms Dice in your mitts. Focusing on sharp edge sets, their mesmerising combination of colours and sparkles perfectly complement the crisp forms and unique font choice.
