the speks star step-by-step:
create a chain and make a ring of 5 speks. wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each of the sides is 3 speks long, add a spek to the center. repeat once to make 2 pentagons.
create a new chain and make a ring of 6 speks. wrap your chain around the ring and continue until each of the sides is 4 speks long. add a spek to the center, 5 to the top and 3 to the bottom as shown.
repeat step two until you have 10 total irregular hexagons.
arrange 5 irregular pentagons around a pentagon and attach as shown. make sure the shapes align and do not interlock.
join the edges of each irregular pentagon to form a star shaped half, this shape will not be flat.
repeat steps four and five to create a second star half, position each half facing out and away from the other. join the halves, starting at the points then moving along all edges.
