High-genus fullerene

I am working on a new bead model of high-genus fullerene for the coming Bridges conference in Coimbra. The 12 necks of this model consists of 8-member rings. The inner part is done. But one still needs to weave the remaining outer part.

(High-genus fullerene with octagonal necks, No:4)

I gave this model to Prof. Reza Sarhangi for permanent display in Towson university in the 2011 Bridge conference. (20120326)

I absolutely adore your blog and what you create from beads. What a delightful idea to visualize fullerenes using beads!
