DescriptionA web wrapped around a 6 inch diameter antique glass lobster buoy. The links are 1/4 hard 314 stainless steel, 5/16 ID 14awg. It's made from a simple Mobius chain (2 links per unit instead of the typical 3) from which I constructed a spherical web. While I would have liked to have made the entire web from hexagons, the pattern just didn't lend itself to a perfect sphere at the proper diameter to enwrap the buoy. But I did start with 2 hex pattern, one for the top and one for the bottom. Each hex is 18 units in circumference: 3 units for each of the 6 sides. I started with one hex at the bottom/top, then a row of 6 hexes around each, followed by a row of 12 hexes, then I simply connected the corners of those 12 hexes of the top pattern with vertical chains to the corners of the bottom pattern.
