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.

Craft Emergency Relief Fund Program is re-opened and we are accepting new inquiries to help artists facing career-threatening emergencies. Generous supporters answered the call to replenish our fund after an unprecedented year of natural disasters. I want to personally thank every one of you for helping us raise over $350,000.
There are many artists who still need our help and have been patiently waiting for our program to re-open. CERF+ is committed to providing them with financial assistance and in-kind donations from individuals and businesses of equipment, supplies and booth-fee waivers.
Since the beginning of our fiscal year (October 1, 2018), 108 artists have received an unprecedented $508,701 in emergency financial relief from CERF+. This compares to 59 artists who received $239,601 in Fiscal Year 2017.
We’re now hearing from artists about the progress they have made on their road to recovery. From California to Puerto Rico, Texas to the U.S. Virgin Islands, artists are rebuilding their studios, making and selling their work, and contributing to recovery in their communities. You can help artists rebound from emergencies by supporting their businesses and by donating to CERF+.
Thank you for being part of the Artists Safety Net.
Sincerely yours,
Cornelia Carey
Executive Director
