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're back with another Meet The Jeweller interview!

Today we're chatting to Rebecca Skeels, an experienced jeweller and the author of Soldering For Jewellers - a customer favourite!

As an educator, we ask Rebecca about her advice on studying jewellery making, soldering tips and her favourite tools and materials to work with.

Read about Rebecca's jewellery making journey, her beautiful bird inspired rings and pins and scroll down to the bottom of the page to discover what tools Rebecca recommends to get started with soldering.
