    Hi everyone,

    July has arrived along with some of the longest days of the year - yes Summer is upon us!

    This month we want to see your SUMMER themed designs, so feel free to interpret this in any way you wish and submit a piece that means Summer to you. One winner will be chosen to receive a prize of a 100 Cooksongold shopping spree.

    Simply submit an image of your piece (along with a brief description if possible) on this thread by midnight, Monday 31st July 2017 to enter.

    I was briefly catching up with Wimbledon, and whilst it is a great summer iconic activity, I got distracted with the daisies and ivy that are popping up more with the heat and the sun. Inspired by them, I have made a bangle that hopefully catches that essence.

    Made from silver, and a yellow 3mm sapphire. I love using shiny and matt contrasts. Stems on ivy are gnarly and matt so have continued with this contrast. Hand drawn, pierced, soldered and textured (inc polishing and satin finishing)

    thank you Faith - I like ivy, it helps the bees, and other insects, but grows so fast I could swear blind it is really a triffid in disguise in my garden. I used a square graver - It is my favourite

    Hi everyone,

    With the arrival of another heatwave, we think it's definitely the right month to be running our Summer competition!

    If you haven't submitted your entry yet, make sure you do before midnight on 31st July and you could win a 100 shopping spree.

    Good luck
