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.

CALL TO MAKERS

Deadline for applicationsMonday 24th March 2017
 

The Incorporation of Goldsmiths and Lyon & Turnbull are delighted to confirm that Elements 3 will take place from 2nd-5th November 2017 in the stunning showrooms of Lyon and Turnbull in Central Edinburgh.
 

Elementsis looking for both experienced and new makers to show their work at the selling fair, offering makers the rare opportunity to reach established collectors, corporate commissions and new customers. Telling the story behind the object is proving to be vital in selling work today and this story of the provenance of the pieces for sale will be central to the design of the fair. Elements will give makers a chance to network and discuss work in a supportive setting, with several events organised specifically for this.
