|Grand constructions for Iamond Ring|
In 2017, John Greening, one of the world's outstanding puzzle aficionados, custom-ordered our Iamond Ring and Octiamond Ring in special colors and sizes 6. 7, and 8. At the end of July he amazed us with this complex nested-rings solution that he calls the "Grand Iamond Ring", after many arduous efforts at solving. He writes, "What a thrill when the last piece fitted into place!!" Yes, John, we know that thrill, too.
Here's John Greening, holding the workboard before completing the solution above. Congratulations, John, on these heroic achievements.
In 2018 John outdid himself by commissioning us to make him a full set of the 161 enneiamonds: all the shapes of 9 equilateral triangles joined. "This way lies madness," we thought, until John sent us a solution he had found, the fantastic and dramatic figure below. Notice how he managed to get the one piece with a hole to sit right in the center.
We can only wonder what spectacular idea John will come up with next.
