2017 Margaret M Scovil PBS Bead Retreat Challenge

Theme - “The Animal Within”

Do you have a totem or spirit animal which speaks to you?  Or perhaps you have a special connection with a particular animal or pet?  Is there a creature which takes your breath away as you watch it running free?  Maybe you have an alter ego…Show through your beadwork your own special “animal within”.
