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.

Congratulations to Benedikt Fischer, winner of the 2018 Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery in the Established category for his series of five Pearly Whites brooches, made from shell, mother of pearl, remanium and sculpey.

Benedikt will receive A$8000 and his work will enter the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria (subject to approval of the Board of Trustees).

Congratulations to Samira Goetz (Germany), winner of the A$2000 prize in the Emerging category for her necklace, DWELL. The judges commented that this piece “works so well and is extremely wearable despite the fact that it’s big. It’s bold and it’s well resolved.

Fielding Talk 2018: Save the date

It is my pleasure to invite you to the Crafts Council’s 2018 Fielding Talk.

This year, critically acclaimed maker Simone ten Hompel will speak about her practice and use of metal as her ‘first language’, followed by an in-conversation with design critic and journalist Corinne Julius.

This is the fifth Fielding Talk held in memory of Amanda Fielding (1958-2013), curator of the Crafts Council Collection for 17 years from 1989 to 2006. The talk series celebrates Fielding's passion and knowledge of the sector through the voices and experiences of the most exciting and innovative makers in applied art and craft.

Tuesday 9 October 2018
6.30pm – 8.30pm

The Goldsmiths’ Centre
42 Britton Street
London EC1M 5AD

The event has limited capacity and RSVP is essential.

RSVP to: rsvp@craftscouncil.org.uk / 020 7806 2535 by Monday 24 September.

I hope you are able to attend and very much look forward to seeing you there.

Rosy Greenlees
Executive Director
