08:07 pm - Borromean Rings!
Also: I've been working on a design for Borromean Rings, and have updated my site to show the ones that work: http://www.afmetalsmith.com/contents/details/BorromeanOptions.html .

These are a set of 3 rings that are interlocked- like the "puzzle" or "Russian" rings- but in which no ring actually passes through any other ring (unlike the "puzzle" rings). There's a link to the Wikipedia article on the concept on the page above.

The fun part of them is that they are GREAT to fidget with- they like being both in ring form, and in what i call "sphere" form, where they look like a wire-defined shpere, or maybe a graphic depiction of an atom. Fun stuff! and also really pretty.
