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.

NEW AND EXCITING ADDITIONS FOR 2017

THE EVENT COMPANY THAT CARES

We hope everybody has had a chance to rest after Christmas and you are enjoying the sweet smell of Spring in the air with the beautiful snow drops popping up and the daffodils starting to show,. This generally means the show season is fast approaching. With visitor interest in our shows up by over 300% at this stage last year and trade stand bookings coming in thick and fast, we are looking forward to the coming season. We have so many new and added attractions and with price freezes all round, our shows are excellent value for money for you to target tens of thousands of visitors. Please remember our offer to advertise for free in our Show Booklet.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
