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.

8 TIPS TO START ARCHIVING YOUR WORK
An inventory project can seem overwhelming, especially if you have hundreds or thousands of pieces to archive. The task can get so built up in our heads, that it oftentimes gets postponed indefinitely. Creating an inventory of your work doesn’t have to be the daunting task that we make it out to be—especially with so many easy-to-use and intuitive art inventory programs out there. Having a system in place will help you get started and work your way through your artwork, saving you time and stress in the future. Here are 8 tips to get you started from Artwork Archive.

INTERVIEW
KIM BUCK
by Vicki Mason
"I made an exhibition that I called The Newest Testament and a piece I called Give Us All Our Daily Bread. These are examples of changing something we know just a little bit--like tripping people to stop and think. I guess humor is a good way to catch people's attention."
