    i was thinking, maybe i could make some kind of sphere out of it. i would have to slightly contour each "diamond" then weld together. not sure what the diameter would be with only 30 pieces.

    cmon guys, any ideas?

    i picked up some thing similar to that from the sheet metal shop in my area, i used it in my wifes flower garden, i made a trelace out of it, the vines grow up thru the holes, looks good when it fills in with growth

    I'm not a fan by any means, but, it looks like a Steelers Logo waiting to happen.

    Maybe a 12" diameter steel or wood back plate all painted up. Add the little diamonds, maybe with different spacers for a 3-D affect. Sell the **** out of them.

    The holes are too close together making it very weak, especially if you start bending it. I see scrap.

    Make a nice gate or a center section of one.
