The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

News : Madineurope is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Association of European Historic Houses.
http://us7.campaign-archive2.com/?u=5352dffafdc975756c6e35ff6&i...

European Historic Houses Association is an association representing private owners interests with European political people. It federates 24 national associations of historic houses through Europe, ensuring themselves the relay with owners of cultural heritage.

Words of EHHA's President, Mr Rodolphe de Looz-Corswarem:  “As an umbrella organization representing more than 50 000 historic houses across Europe, the European Historic Houses Association has developed a strong interest in the services provided by Mad’in Europe. Historic building owners are very often struggling to find qualified artisans to take care of this rich, but demanding, heritage. With its wide network of European artisans, Mad’in Europe represents a real added-value for our members and, therefore, we can only support this very ambitious project”.
