    Default Theme Competition May 2016 - Gold

    Hello all,

    May has arrived which means it's also time for Cooksongold's Golden Ticket Event!

    ...so to run alongside this exciting promotion, what better theme for this month's forum competition than GOLD. Your design doesn't necessarily have to be made using gold, you can interpret the theme however you wish - so feel free to use gold coloured gemstones or gold plated chain and findings in your piece to add that golden touch. The choice is yours!

    The winner will get a 100 Cooksongold shopping spree - just submit your design on this thread by midnight, 31st May to enter.

    Good luck!

    Terms & Conditions:

    The closing date for the competition will be at midnight GMT 31.05.16.

    The judging will take place on 01.06.16. The following criteria are used to determine the winner: design, the technique used and the overall finish of the piece. The Cooksongold judging panel will make the final decision.

    The winner will be announced and notified via the forum by 03.06.16. The winner must redeem their shopping spree (up to the value of 100 excluding VAT) using their own Cooksongold account and within 2 months of receiving their winner notification email.

    In the case of the winner's shopping spree exceeding the value of 100 (excluding VAT), the winner is liable to pay for any amount over the value of 100.

    The competition is open to all Cooksongold customers aged 18 years and over. Only one entry per person.

    Employees of Cooksongold, their agents and families are excluded from the competition together with any person connected to the competition.

    I'm jumping in quick with this one, as I'm usually too embarrassed to post my humble offering once I've seen everyone elses!
    A pair of cufflinks made for my husband, textured using the ribbon behind them in the rolling mill and embellished with 23.5c gold foil, my first go at keum boo.

    Thanks lucie,
    Actually my husband doesn't wear cufflinks as often as he used to, only about a couple of times a year or so now, but my son who's 21 just loves to wear them - but he goes to lots of formal do's, mostly sporting ones.
    I love your heart, its so sweet and I'm sure the grandma will treasure it.

    They look very classy joella, understated yet very attractive and interesting. I'm too scared to go anywhere near a bit of gold yet!

    The aquamarine really sets it off, the Grandma will treasure it forever, I know I would.

    Hi Lynn,

    Thanks for your kind comments. I was lucky enough to be able to buy the gold foil for a couple of pounds a square cm from someone, rather than buying a whole leaf for about 82 ish, thus making it affordable to have a play around with a bit. I don't think I would have been brave enough if I'd had to commit so much financially. It was great fun, and I cant wait to have another go at Keum Boo with a little bit more gold foil. Like you I'm too scared to go anywhere near any gold sheet yet - its so expensive, I cant bear the thought of a melty mess or even just a not terribly well executed piece of jewellery made from something at such a high cost. Though I did use a tiny bit of thin gold wire a while back, balled up the ends and riveted into an item just to add a little bit of gold decoration. I'm itching to make a gold ring from a more substantial bit of wire, or an item such as pendant or earrings from sheet - but the cost feels just too high for me just now, as I don't feel I can be trusted with something so valuable yet!

    I love the sentiment behind Lucie's pretty and charming piece.
