Dodecahedron: A 12-sided solid, with 3 sides meeting at each vertex. I must have slept thru that geometry class ....

In chainmaille terms, we know it as Japanese Ball, and it's not exactly a solid; it's an application of Japanese 5-in-1, can be made with almost any aspect ratios. This is my 2nd experiment using leftover rings from the practice kit. The stuffing is a big Swarovski crystal ball in pink. Look closely, you'll see each of the 12 sides has 3 rings in same inner diameter, but the top ring is one gauge skinner than the bottom 2, just so that the whole thing holds a more stable shape.

This is so addictive; got to make more ....
