I started this Bible cover when taking a Treasure Bindings class from noted metalsmith and book artist, Christine Cox. During one full week, I made the enamels, etched the metal, made the bezels and cut out and edged the cross. After that first week, I worked on the cover sporadically, finally finishing it about four years later with continuing assistance and encouragement from Christine.
These 4 x 4 tiles were donated to the Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek, for a fund raiser for their education fund. The gallery gives money to support the arts in public schools, as all funding for the arts has been cut.
