Buckyball Skull

Long time Skull-A-Day friend, Jay Butler from Richmond, VA made this. He explains, "Fiddling at me desk with these magnetic steel balls called Buckyballs.  Slammed 'em down and the attached arrangement arose!"

I've always liked these type of magnetic balls since the first time I saw them at the Science Museum of Virginia (here in Richmond). They are lots of fun to play with. I used to fiddle with them at my desk instead of doing my homework...which is sort of like Jay fiddling with them at his desk and not doing work. I could never get them to make a necklace or bracelet...maybe one day.
