In your REST Service bean (which extends AbstractResource like you did), 
you can invoke #getSiteLink(requestContext, HippoBean), which returns a 
link object which you can use.
So, for example, if you have a requestContext and 
HippoGalleryImageSetBean, then you could invoke 
super.getSiteLink(requestContext, galleryImageSetBean.getThumbnail()) or 
super.getSiteLink(requestContext, galleryImageSetBean.getOriginal()).
You can also use the method for other documents to create proper website
