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.

A new annual award that reinforces the Museum of Art and Design’s (MAD) commitment to celebrating the next generation of artists working in the American studio craft movement, the Burke Prize is an unrestricted $50,000 award made to a professional artist under the age of 45 working in glass, fiber, clay, metals, or wood. The Burke Prize will be determined by an annual jury of professionals in the fields of art, craft, and design following an open application process. Applicants must be American citizens or permanent residents, living or working within the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, or the US Virgin Islands. The applications will be reviewed by a jury led by Shannon Stratton, chief curator at MAD, and available starting February 2018. The first winner of the Burke Prize will be announced in the fall of 2018. http://madmuseum.org/content/burke-prize

INTERVIEW
SUSIE GANCH
Susan Beech Mid-Career Grant Finalist
by Vicki Mason

"I was daunted by the glut of material consumption and waste I saw. I needed a practical way to not only educate myself about material-sourcing issues in my field but also a way to solve problems through making."

--Susie Ganch on why she co-designed Radical Jewelry Makeover with Christina Miller

We invite you to participate with your current and of course best pieces to our exhibition „HammerClub 2018“. The theme and title of this years edition is Favorites. If your work contains other materials then silver or material combinations, but you consider them to be representative, then we stand open to all good works. All silversmiths and silver enthusiasts are invited to submit their current and best work on this year's exhibition entitled Favorites with a competition. The exhibition will be on display from 4 May to 4 August 2018 in the Silver Hall of the Deutsche Goldschmiedehaus Hanau.
Conditions
The maximum size of the entries is 43/103/100 cm (depth/width/height).

Jewelry is not accepted.

A catalog will be published with the exhibition.

For sending the picture use WeTransfer or a comparable program (mail to : silberschmiede-forum2018@gmx.de). Images received later cannot be included in the catalog.

If you submit more than one object, a separate registration must be made for each individual entry. We do not want to limit the number of objects, but reserve the right to make a choice if there is a shortage of space.

The exhibits must arrive free of charge between April 3 and April 13, 2018 at the Deutschen Goldschmiedehaus, att. HammerClub 2018, Altstädter Markt 6, D-63450 Hanau, Germany, in reusable packaging. The entries are insured from the Goldschmiedehaus. The insurance by the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst e.V. ends with the return of the object.
