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.

Dazzle
 
With more than 4,000 pieces from 80 international makers, London fair Dazzle is a one-stop-shop for all your jewellery needs. This year’s show at gallery@oxo (11 November – 6 January 2019) features a particularly strong line-up of emerging designer-makers picked from this year’s graduate shows. Keep your eye on silversmith Aillie Anderson, who scooped a gold award at Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council Awards, Aileen Gray’s industrial, wearable sculptures and fair stalwarts Helen Noakes, DeeLyn Walsh and Cara Tonkin.

Birmingham City Council, the buildings' owner, has told tenants of the Jewellery Quarter workshops it intends to sell the properties.
 
Many have said they fear being made to move to make way for apartments.
 
The city council said potential buyers of the sites should look to retain some or all of their commercial use.
 
The local authority said the sites in the Vyse Street Triangle, Caroline Street and Pitsford Street were identified as having the potential to support housing growth and job creation.
 
But traders said they feared future owners of the buildings would force them out.
