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.

Men’s jewellery is one of the most exciting facets of the business right now, as male shoppers become braver in their choices and the boundaries between genders become fluid. Join Rachel Taylor, of The Jewellery Cut, and guest speakers including Fiona Deffenbaugh, owner and designer at Black Peral London, designer-maker Castro Smith and Darrell Granton, Head of Wholesale for UK & Ireland at Thomas Sabo for an evening’s discussion on the growing interest in male adornment and what it means for jewellery.

The awards (three individual artist residencies in Greece) may boost the jewellers' imagination and enrich their understanding of the meaning and uses of jewellery.
Greece's 5.000 years old fascinating jewellery tradition can become an indispensable source of inspiration for every jewelry artist who sees beyond the obvious.
 
 
Key dates:
12th of March, the last day of application.
16th of March, the day of the award announcement.
2nd of December, 2019 - 6th of December 2020, awards winners may choose a residency week in between.
