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.

Andy Holden & Peter Holden: Natural Selection

Natural Selection marks the culmination of a five-year collaboration between artist Andy Holden and his father, the well-known ornithologist Peter Holden. Their collaborative work takes us on an ornithological journey: from the building of nests to the collecting of eggs.

The date letter for 2018 is a lower case t - it is set inside a square shield design with chamfered corners. We started to apply these to your work from the first working day of the new year - Tuesday 2 January.
