Each page of this handmade book was created from polymer clay. A number of found objects are incorporated into the surface design. Two pieces of an ancient heart are brought together with street sweeper needles, which were collected by Geraldine's husband. A small metal frame encases a single hand typed word, "beloved." The remnants of a car logo provide the authors initial, while a storm window tack announces the number of years the couple had spent together to this point.

The pages of the book are illustrated to coincide with one of the songs played at the pair's wedding. The artist has used a number of transferred images, textural elements from her wedding ring and more found objects. The entire collection is bound with waxed linen in a single sheet version of the Coptic stitch.
