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.

Judith Brown uses tiny coloured glass seed beads and silver to make geometric jewellery. Art Deco inspired shapes have colour inspiration taken from the muted shades of fashion plates and prints of the same era. See her full collection of beautiful earrings and necklaces here...

During the month of February, become a member of AJF and be entered in a raffle to receive one of five copies of Jewellery Matters.

https://artjewelryforum.org/jewellery-matters-raffle?utm_source=2.2...

Art historian, design expert, and collector Marjan Unger and Rijksmuseum curator Suzanne van Leeuwen explore a dizzying array of beautiful objects to tell the fascinating story of jewelry from the Byzantine era to the present day. Jewelry is a unique art form--rare almost by definition and yet utterly universal--and Jewellery Matters engages its unique materiality, interweaving perspectives from art history, fashion theory, and anthropology with material research. What emerges is a gripping tale of a shared cultural heritage, an art form that is produced and worn around the world.
