Janice's long term project is to finish this cover and to use it on a family bible. Look at those perfect enamels! I'll update this photo when the book is done.

Ronnie walked in with a design in her head and walked out with the finished dream. Her book features wooden covers, bezel-set stones, stamping, etching and sewing a chain stitch.
