Janice began this project with the idea of making a sculptural pod rather than a two-dimensional pod. She started with three mandrel wires and wove back and forth from one to the other, coiling between each weave. Out of this attempt came the weaving/coiling process that makes up this lovely sculptural form. Add some pearls or gems and a pea pod is born!
