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.

Many of us know what it’s like to be in a state of creative flow. Do you have to wait for inspiration to strike, or can you hack ‘the zone’?

In the 3 years since its inception, the British Craft Pavilion became the go-to exhibition for high-end craft during the London Design Festival; 2019 sees the pavilion open its doors to global makers, becoming the International Craft Pavilion.
 
The focus will be on functional and contemporary craft from around the world, and from across the full spectrum of craft disciplines, inviting both individual makers and organisations such as international crafts councils to represent their nations craft at the International Craft Pavilion.
 
As a response to a call for a more global representation of the crafts, the International Craft Pavilion will become a key destination for the Fair's 29,000 visitors from 77 countries, alongside the London Design Festival's audience of collectors, retailers and industry experts.
 
 
KEY DATES
APPLICATION DEADLINE - 18th MARCH 2019
SELECTION MADE BY - 5th APRIL 2019
 
"As the London Design Fair continues to grow into the largest and most respected international destination during the London Design Festival it makes sense that the Craft Pavilion should also be international.”
Jimmy MacDonald, Founder & Director, London Design Fair
APPLY TO EXHIBIT AS PART OF THE PAVILION

Madebyhandonline: Rachel Butlin seeks to challenge the concepts of contemporary interactive and wearable jewellery producing a range of high end, mixed material wearable pieces. She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small scale sculpture that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer. Carefully considering material combination and placement, her work often explores bespoke materials, evoking curiosity between the piece and the wearer themselves. https://madebyhandonline.com/collections/rachel-butlin
