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.

We are looking for a few more volunteers to help on the ACJ stand at the Goldsmiths' Hall for the Make Your Mark event, organised by the Assay Office London. In particular for Tuesday 31 October (but offers for the 1 Nov would also be gratefully received!).



This is aimed at students on precious metal courses across the UK.



We need people to staff our stall and tell visitors about ACJ and the benefits of being a member.



If you could spare a few hours it would really help.

On Tuesday 31st October,  the event is open 10.30am to 5.30pm.



On Wednesday 1st November, the event will open at 10.00 am and finishes at 4.00pm.

If you are able to help, please email me at enquiries@acj.org.uk



THANK YOU!
