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.

The LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize is open to artists of all ages and nationalities, regardless of experience or reputation. The Prize is judged on the strength of the work and values those who are pushing the boundaries of craft.
The 2019 edition produced our youngest winner to date in Genta Ishizuka, whilst the special mentions, Harry Morgan and Kazuhito Takadoi, have enjoyed unprecedented exposure through the Craft Prize.
