This is a graph embedded in 3-dimensional space as a subset of an "octahedral lattice", which is related to the tessellation of space using octahedra and tetrahedra. The graph has a fractal structure, formed by a process of repeated substitution. Each vertex at each step of the construction is degree 4, and is replaced at the next step by 6 vertices arranged in an octahedron, with certain choices of edges connecting them to each other. Each edge is replaced at the next step by 2 parallel edges. We begin the construction with the first step being the edges of an octahedron, and this is the result at the fourth step.

A fascinating 4-piece puzzle with 2 identical pieces and 2 identical mirror images which interlocks into a tetrahedron. This is the metal version of "Stan's Tetrahedron" at http://www.shapeways.com/model/53194/stan_s_tetrahedron.html It fits nicely out of the box, although the fit is a bit looser than in the plastic (WSF) version of the same puzzle. Update Mar 15 2010: the new version has no holes visible when assembled. Sphere diameter: 12mm.
Only a few copies of this puzzle have been printed. It is quite expensive and I am not sure if the tolerances in metal are good enough to reproduce it reliably.
Yet another cufflink I made. This one is smaller than the others but still most massive.
The cube is 1,5 x 1,5 x 1,5 cm, but it's a cube, so probably a big cufflink.
The normal version without twisted layers exists too. I prefer keeping them seperate though. Any combination or spares can be ordered that way.
