About JAK

Greetings Adventurers!

My name is Janine, and I’m the artificer behind JAK of Trades; I am also the shipping goblin, and do all the delightful bureaucratic tasks that keep things running here.

Making dice and accessories for tabletop games, is the unity of two deep loves: games and crafting. My drive to create is an ever present companion, and I deeply enjoy many artistic processes, as well as learning new techniques and skills. Combining my joy of tabletop games and creative projects, is a privilege that I am excited to continue exploring. Hopefully the things I make bring as much joy to you, as they do to me while I’m making them.

I have two fuzzy coworkers, Sappho and Gamora, who put up with my antics for extended hours every day. They’re generally grumpy, and often prefer to be left alone; but we’ve created a little herd here, and they tolerate my presence. They are the inspiration for Beau, the chinchilla mascot that may be spotted on this website and in lucky orders.

Anyway, I wanted to say “thank you for checking our little shop out, please peruse the hoard and loot all you can!”
