    A slightly tenuous sporting connection, but I was really chuffed with how this turned out!

    I was asked to make a necklace for the founder of London Rollergirls roller derby leage for their 10th birthday. They asked for something based on their annoyingly complicated logo, which looks like this:

    So, I designed a necklace based on the core elements, so the Union Jack and the safety pin, and inspired by a classic punk Vivienne Westwood necklace.

    Carved the safety pin head and Union Jack from wax:

    Then all cast in silver and I soldered silver wire for the pin (it's not a functioning safety pin, the pin bit is soldered shut).

    Some laser engraving on the back, and tada!

    It took a while to make, but she loved it

    We loved how the links have been carefully forged to produce a stunning overall piece. The bracelet also fitted the theme perfectly, and we really liked the additional detailed touches of a tennis racket and strawberry to reflect Wimbledon. Well done!

    Please email competitions@cooksongold.com with your contact details and Cooksongold account number so we can arrange for your prize to be sorted.

    Congratulations again!

    Jen
