    Default Theme Competition June 2016 - Sports

    Hello all,

    With Summer on it's way and the Euros competition coming up, we thought we would run with a slightly different theme for this month's competition - SPORT!

    Your design doesn't necessarily have to be football themed, it could be focused around another sport or maybe even something that reminds you of being outdoors in the summer time.

    The winner will get a 100 Cooksongold shopping spree - just submit your design on this thread by midnight, 30th June to enter.

    Good luck!

    Terms & Conditions:

    The closing date for the competition will be at midnight GMT 30.06.16.

    The judging will take place on 01.07.16. 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 08.07.16. 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.

    To enter the competition, simply comment on the relevant forum thread with a photo of your themed design. No correspondence will be entered into.

    All designs submitted must be the original work of the individual submitting them and must not infringe the rights of any other party. Cooksongold reserves the right to contact an entrant for further clarification if necessary.

    I might jump in with my contribution (before I have the chance to be too intimidated by everyone else's enties!)

    When I think of sport in June I think of Wimbledon in the sun, so this is a circle link T-bar bracelet in Sterling silver with hand-made racket, strawberry (it's Wimbledon, how could you not?) and a 12mm white jade, intended to represent both a tennis ball and one of the longest held traditions in Wimbledon's history that players wear only white.

    The circle links and T-bar have a forged finish to up the energy of this sporty piece and maximise reflectivity, now that the sunny weather's here (ish).
    The racket in particular really tested steadiness of hand, I felt in need of some gentle counselling after the experience.

    Many thanks and looking forward to seeing all of the entries

    Here is my-competitive entry, to keep MPrice company and encourage others. It is a bookmark, scanned in from an old print in the days when you took your film into Boots.

    The header has been pierced from silver sheet and the wire signature was from the young man's writing at that time. It was riveted onto a strip, probably of plastic, but I cant remember now.

    It did not encourage him to read much, except for books on football. Dennis.

    10pm, 23rd June - time to blow the final whistle on this referendum game...

    I based this on the old favourite of referees - the "Acme Thunderer" - it's quite simple, but I enjoyed making it and am happy with the result. It's made from Argentium silver sheet, cut, formed, fused, filed, polished.
