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.

INTERNSHIPS

Klimt02 offers to students (Master or Bachelor degree) or professionals the opportunity to undertake internships for a period of 4 to 6 months; the exact time will be agreed with the applicant.

We offer different positions depending on the candidate's skills and profile.
Work at Klimt02 isn’t a “bench work” and most of the time will be spent in front of a computer / thinking. For this role it is very important to be aware of what is currently happening in the jewellery field, how the industry works but also  it’s a theoretical work. We work with databases, contact artists, discuss new ways of publication...

Department directors of the schools are welcome to contact us in order to establish an official and regular agreement.
Please mail us at klimt@klimt02.net

The 2017 edition of Sieraad Jewellery Art Fair opens the doors in November 9th. The direct contact with the designers is one of the most attractive aspects for visitors. The enormous variety in styles, ranging from the more traditional to explicitly artistic and experimental, also forms an inspiration for each visitor to find something to their own taste.

This year Sieraad is offering a new stand format for Klimt02 members, 6m2 for 2 jewellers. Apply now, only few stands available.

Hours:     Full Time
Contract Type:     Permanent
Placed on:     9th May 2017
Closes:     23rd May 2017

The Edward James Foundation is a charitable educational trust located on the 6,400 acre West Dean Estate in beautiful West Sussex countryside near Chichester, specialising in creative and applied arts.  As well as being a respected educational institution; the historic house and collections, the stunning grounds and gardens open to the public, and the year round events and exhibitions make West Dean truly unique.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic conservation professional to be the Subject Leader specialising in Clocks and Dynamic Objects.  Working within the School of Conservation, the post holder will be responsible for the organisation and delivery of subject specialist curriculum for conservation of clocks and related dynamic objects at Graduate Diploma and Masters level, as well as having responsibility for the co-ordination and management of some aspects of cross-school curriculum as agreed with the Head of School.

The Clocks department comprises one of five conversation disciplines offered at West Dean, with courses ranging from Foundation Diploma to MA; validated by the University of Sussex.  Subject-specific study within the broad contextual experience of a multi-disciplinary conservation college, a low staff-to-student ratio, extensive workshop time and international profile, contribute to a unique experience. With the course established for over four decades West Dean Alumni are leading practitioners both in the UK and beyond.
