Free the Purple Coyotes

About this design:

I started out with the idea of putting the little amethyst coyotes inside the silver spirals but they stubbornly refused to sit and stay and then I realized that even Purple Coyotes don't belong in cages so I let them hang free and they are much happier....


Amethyst, Blue Chalcedony, Lapidalite Jasper,
