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.

Introduction to Gems & Gemmology - one-day workshop

Are you interested in gems and jewellery? Would you love to know where gems are from and how to identify them? Then you should grab yourself a place at our next gems and gemmology workshop on Sunday 3rd June, being hosted by Julia Thompson Jewellery in Somerset. There are more details on our Facebook page.

This one-day workshop will give you a solid overview of many of the key topics relating to gems and gemmology, from the scientific aspects of the subject to the practical side of gem properties and identification. You will learn to use some of the main gemmologist’s tools and have a chance to examine (and buy!) a wide range of gemstones.

We look forward to seeing you there! https://www.facebook.com/events/156284865208445/

Oxidation is often interpreted as an aging of the product, the touch of time on the material. Style is another mark of time on a product. Through those two aspects, Oxydum plays on the notions of time and style, using timeless geometrics shapes and a controlled use of the oxidation process. https://materia.nl/material/oxydum/?utm_source=Materia&utm_camp...

Join us and learn how to display insects in the style of museum specimens. You can come individually or as a group of friends. Over the course of the session you will learn more about insect mounting and have the opportunity to mount your own (sustainably sourced) cricket or butterfly. Our experts will supply all of the equipment, so you only need to bring yourself. Your specimen will be available for you to collect and keep the following Saturday.
