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.

Our theme of wellbeing and sustainability has inspired some unmissable ideas and installations from our partners, destined to be over-subscribed. Thankfully there is a way to get early access to the programme and event listings!

Jewelry is a lifetime commitment for some people. This could not be more evident than it is in artist, Imogene (Tex) Gieling’s exhibition Sixty Years. The pieces selected for the exhibition showcase the wide range of work produced during her illustrious career.

Join Contemporary British Silversmiths, the leading association for design-led silver, for a live demonstration in the V&A’s Silver Galleries. They will demonstrate ways of combining modern technologies with traditional craftsmanship to create a beautiful piece of contemporary silver – from digital hammering to design and adapting industrial processes. Demonstrations by Chris Knight, Shona Marsh, Kathryn Hinton and Hamish Dobbie.

It is no surprise that craft is the UK’s fastest growing creative industry. Promoting mindfulness and community spirit, ‘welldoing’ is the perfect antidote to modern times
