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.

Art Jewelry Forum seeks thoughtful, incisive writing proposals that look critically at art jewelry, ask questions that might not have easy answers, and contribute to the ongoing discourse.

 

How can we have critical thinking without being able to quote and being able to compare what happened in the past?

-Brewster Kahle

 

We're especially interested in proposals for the One on One series--a focused essay on a single object, historic or contemporary--and the One on Two series, which is a comparative essay that examines a piece of jewelry in relation to a work of contemporary art or something from another art discipline.

 

Our online submission process is always open, but the deadline to be included in the next Editorial Advisory Committee review is September 1, 2017. Find out more at the link.

Tatty Devine

We talk to the energetic jewellery duo

Tatty Devine feature in our jewellery exhibition I AM HERE which features over 90 pieces of jewellery from the last 40 years.

We visited founders Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden in east London to talk about getting started in the 90s, working with pioneering jeweller Susanna Heron, their compulsion to make and why you should never ask permission.

The 'Still Life' necklace Harriet wears in the film features in I AM HERE and inspired the Still Life Pot Plant Brooch which was one of the limited edition pieces, along with the I AM HERE Necklace that they created for the Crafts Council.

I AM HERE is on at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden until the 28 August 2017.

The Goldsmiths’ Company is keen to encourage and support the next generation of jewellers and silversmiths. To fulfil this we offer ten free stands on the Graduate Bursary Scheme at Goldsmiths’ Fair each year.
 
Winners of the bursary get a free stand at Goldsmiths’ Fair, a £1,500 grant to help prepare for the Fair, and an optional interest free silver bullion loan of up to £3,000. Previous recipients of the Graduate Bursary include Heather Woof and Miriam Hanid, amongst others.
 
The graduates also receive mentoring from the Goldsmiths’ Centre, helping the graduates to develop business plans and prepare for large exhibitions. The graduates are also given advice on their social media and web presence, as well as pricing strategies.
