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.

ACJ Member:
Christine Johnson made Juniper Bubble Beaker
commisioned for Made for the Table Exhibition:

Silver Beaker with Bubbles, Lines and Juniper Berries, 2018, £1,440 (incl VAT)

Juniper Bubble Beaker by Christine Johnson is perfect for enjoying a gin and tonic. Inspired by gin and her love of geometric lines and repetition, three columns of silver beads are positioned in thirds around the beaker; the smaller beads represent rising bubbles and the largest bead at the top of each column symbolise a Juniper berry. The bubbles are a reference to the familiar method of serving, with tonic, and the berries reference the source of the flavour. There is a special space reserved on the side of the beaker where you could place your mark of ownership; an emblem, coat of arms or initials.

About the designer
Designer-maker Christine Johnson’s work is inspired by repetition and pattern, and the interplay of lines of light and shadow. Many of her jewellery pieces are kinetic and reflect a deep interest in optical illusion and visual effects.

Now at its fifth edition, AUTOR Magazine is an independent publication in English language, printed on special paper and with creative graphics. AUTOR Magazine #5 hosts a series of features dedicated to contemporary and art jewelry projects, created and developed by the designers themselves, thus making it an artistic initiative in itself. https://klimt02.net/publications/magazines/autor-magazine-5-autor?u...

Artist opportunity to travel back in time

Lion Television Scotland are looking for artists and craftspeople to take part in a new BBC series on the Arts and Craft movement, exploring how it could enrich our lives and celebrating visionaries like William Morris. The series will take a group of craftspeople back in time to work in an Arts and Craft bubble using traditional methods and tools, similar in style to living history shows like Victorian Farm and Back in Time for Dinner.

If interested send your name, craft and contact number to houseofartsandcrafts@liontv.co.uk
