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.

Are you a recently graduated maker/applied artist? Or in your final year of University? We want to know what you’re planning to do after completing your degree.
   Below is a short questionnaire and it would be great if you could help us by filling it in. We'd like to gather as many responses as possible to help us decide what we could do that would be most helpful to graduates https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=kaLFTlWoSkeInjO...
