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.

All the objects chosen for this year’s Stories in the Making have a tale to tell, and a role to play too in the emerging narratives of the participating students setting out to develop their own craft signature.
The Stories in the Making project offers MA and MRes students at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham the rare opportunity to closely examine and research a chosen craft object from the Collection held by the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
