Another nest from springs

This nest uses a different spring, this spring is for the back of an armchair. It has been a big challenge to hold these together. Getting the springs required actual dumpster diving. My husband and I arrived a little late to the upholstery store that was closing and he had thrown them in the dumpster. In the true spirit of creation my husband and I jumped in and untangled them from the mess of other things.  They arrived at the studio in a huge tangled mess.  After much work they are separated and are being retangled in a systematic way.

The final product will have cord and edging from upholstery woven through it. The project is a long ways from being completed. Good thing I don't have to have them ready until June.
