    Apologies to those of you who have seen these, but they're the most Christmas-like items I've made.

    Three different Christmas trees in three hardwoods. Turned on a lathe.

    The Angel and star are sterling silver and were cast in cuttlefish. The gem tree was set with 16 Cubic Zirconia stones various sizes and the settings were made with burrs as you would manufacture in metal.

    Many thanks,

    Nick

    Five hallmarked 9ct gold rings for a Christmas card. Looks rather like holly with wheels on.

    We loved the use of wood combined with sterling silver and gemstones to create these pieces, which were a perfect fit for this month's theme!

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

    Congratulations!

    Jen

    Blimey!!!

    I NEVER win anything what-so-ever so I'm both humbled and grateful.

    Thankyou all very much for your kind words, and thank-you to the Cookson team for choosing me as the winner.

    I will get my shopping list together this evening and email the team.

    Many thanks,

    Nick
