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.

The Western Isles is the first region of the UK and only the second in Europe to be awarded World Craft City status.
 
While not a city, the Outer Hebrides are being recognised for a centuries-long production of Harris Tweed.
 
The award has been made as part of the staging of World Craft Council Europe's general assembly in Edinburgh.
 
It is the first time in 15 years that the gathering of international craftspeople has taken place in Scotland.
 
The Danish island of Bornholm is Europe's other holder of craft city status.
 
Globally, cities and regions of Chile, Thailand, Iran, India and Jordan have the designation.

Juggling and Jewellery. A Conversation with an outsider about Munich Jewellery Week

In 2016, my host Tyrant described Munich Jewellery Week as an underground subculture of wearable art.
