I found this "Tribal" creature shortly after last year's bead retreat in a small bead store in Waldport, Or. I immediately thought this beast needs to come alive. The first step, just embroider some beads around the "beast". The rest just flowed. My inner "beast" took over and I was surprised at what came out of me. In this challenge are African Trade Beads, snake vertebrae, bear claw, dentalium shell, turquoise, bone wood, and leather. Also in this piece, I used seed beads, heshi shells, antique nail heads, and peanut seed beads.
