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.

It’s all about the event; it’s all about jewellery as connection, performance, social conduit, code conveyer and icebreaker. It’s about celebrating the celebration of jewellery and object that is Radiant Pavilion. It’s about the power of an arts event to bring like-minded people together, and make new connections! It’s about attracting attention to what we do, via an explosion of energy and experimentation!

So we hail you: our local and visiting crew of jewellers and artists unafraid to delve into the jewellery realm, to invite you to send us a proposal for your own one-night-only, ‘jewellery’ festival experience creation!

Specializing in contemporary jewelry, Ruddy Metal Studio (RMS) has initiated and curated the ‘Contemporary Human Beings Recruitment Project’, dedicated in finding cross-boundary artists who use multiple and various materials in their creations. Based on this project, those who are selected will be provided space by RMS to manufacture and exhibit their jewelry work at E6 · Bentu One in Beijing from 26.07.2019 to 28.07.2019.

Karl Fritsch & Francis Upritchard in The Abyss: Strategies in contemporary art
Griffith University Art Museum, 25 July - 28 September
With the capacity to elicit simultaneous and complex experiences, artworks in this exhibition employ push-pull tensions of seduction and repulsion – towards the abject and informé, to the ornamental, erotic and transgressive, and those that consider historical grotesques to explore contemporary issues of race and identity.
Curator: Naomi Evans

Why European collaboration is worth fighting for
 
 
While some in the UK may believe we have little to learn from European collaboration, Anne Torreggiani and Jonathan Goodacre have found cross-border networks to be a force for innovation and change.
