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.

Design Frontiers is a group exhibition at Somerset House, within the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court, West Wing and Terrace Room Galleries, of 30 leading international designers whose work challenges boundaries. The curated and free exhibition will illuminate the thinking and working processes of these practitioners, each renowned for re-defining and leading their respective disciplines: from automotive to fashion, product design to graphics, digital to performance. Tickets are free, but registration is essential. http://www.londondesignfestival.com/design-frontiers-exhibitors
