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.

All of this is possible only during NYCJW!

Opening Tuesday 2 October, 5.30 - 7.30pm
Join us next Tuesday as we open Triple Matter, an exhibition featuring three artists from three continents, each focusing on a single material.
Inari Kiuru is a Melbourne-based Finnish artist examining the connection between post-industrial landscapes and the natural world. Using the ubiquitous materials of mass construction, she interprets light, texture and atmospheres, drawing out the magical details of our surroundings. Inari’s new body of work focuses on the potential and surprising beauty of concrete.
Lore Langendries is a Belgian maker whose work with animal hide straddles digital production and the intimacy of the handmade. In her brooches, Lore explores the space between visual perception and what we learn by touch. The hides become both material and subject, evoking new associations yet remaining entirely and uncompromisingly themselves.
Hyun-seok Sim is a Korean artist who manipulates silver with refinement and lightness of touch, so that they almost appear to be drawings on paper. He completed his MFA at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada in 2000 and teaches at Kookmin University in Seoul. Sim has exhibited extensively worldwide; this is his first exhibition at Funaki.
Triple Matter runs until 27 October.
