Today we are launching a new GoJD competition for the run up to Christmas. The theme is 'White Christmas' and we want to see all of your white, sparkly, wintery pieces that echo the icy weather that we're being promised by the weathermen!

You can use any medium, any style and any size of work and we are welcoming entries of silverware as well as jewellery. We also know that many silversmiths and jewellers are starting to develop annual ranges of Christmas decorations and we would love to see these too!

If you have a piece that you’ve designed and fabricated yourself simply post an image of your work on the GoJD Forum thread, GoJD Facebook page or GoJD Community page to enter the competition. Leave a brief description if you wish and the piece with the greatest number of ‘likes’* across four social media platforms on 24 December 2013 will win a collection of three texturing hammers.





The fourth social media platform is Pinterest and we will also add your entry to our 'White Christmas' board here>>>

- login to the GoJD website
- from the horizontal menu directly beneath the banner, hover over 'social' then choose 'community'
