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.

Dear Members,

Greetings from the Association for Contemporary Jewellery, we hope you are all staying safe indoors, and are as well as can be managed. 

ACJ staff are still working remotely and from home, as usual. The Glasshouses exhibition is still in the pipeline and more news will be sent in your e-bulletin, so do start planning and making your entries!

Unfortunately we have closed the Connections | Connessioni exhibition at The Lighthouse in Glasgow, but we are still hoping to take the exhibition to Italy later this year. Again, we'll update you when dates become clear.

Many of our members have benches and tools at home, but we know that many others do not and cannot be making during the seclusions. We hope you can develop some good designs! The Board are working on some ideas and challenges for you.

SNAG understands that COVID-19 has created much disruption to educational institutions. Many of you are now charged with teaching remotely. On March 16, 2020 SNAG held a virtual In Conversation meeting for educators to brainstorm and share ideas to help create online learning lessons. Thanks to everyone who participated. https://www.snagmetalsmith.org/2020/03/in-conversation/

From all of us here at ACJ we are sending our best to you all. We hope most of you can keep making, showcasing work online and reading and looking at and about Jewellery. Do video call those that are on their own and supporting those that are loosing sales and income in these hard times. Best to you all! Keep Happy and Healthy.
