How a Series of Seed Pods Came to BE

               
When I took the original picture of the white seed pod, I had no idea it would be the beginning of a series. 

First there was the challenge of making a translucent polymer seed pod, then came the seed pod jewelry.  Now the seed pod made of sterling silver metal clay.  

I think this is the last of the series.  It was fun to take the idea from photo to translucent to solid forms.  I've learned a lot about forming and joining shapes in different mediums and about patience and experimenting!  So here is the procession of the 2013 Seed Pod!
