We recently posted about Jens Hansen's nephew Jens Winter-Glasgow. Winter-Glasgow started his jewellery training at our Nelson, New Zealand workshop, completed his formal apprenticeship with world renowned Danish jewellers Georg Jensen, and graduated 2nd in the whole of Denmark in 2008.
As a result he was chosen to represent Denmark at the Nordic Jewellery Award championships in August 2008. At the Championships two representatives each from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark competed to make a set piece. Jens' workmanship was judged best and he won the competition and took home a check for 50,000 Danish Kroner.
