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.

Emergency funding package
We've launched our Emergency Response Package, which is made up of: £20 million available to individuals, £50 million to organisations outside of our National Portfolio and £90 million to our National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs).
Today, we've published the guidance for our first two funds, and details for NPOs will be available soon.

ACE: Ensuring the people and organisations in the cultural sector are supported during the Covid-19 crisis is now our number one priority.
We're making £160 million of emergency funding available for individuals and organisations who will need it during this crisis. Today we've published the guidance for our emergency response funds open to individuals and organisations who aren't part of our National Portfolio.
Along with this, we've collated guidance and resources from the government and other professional bodies, which might be helpful to you.
We know these are tough times. It's been amazing to see artists, creative practitioners and organisations coming together to support each other: we've pulled together a list of just a few of the many resources and workshops that are on offer across the sector. https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/blog/responding-covid19-emergency?_c...

Sian Evans Jewellery
 
'Rethink. Recycle. Redesign' is Sian Evan's tagline. It's an apt introduction for her individual style of jewellery, made in London using recycled gold and vintage stones and designed to be worn and re-worn, and to improve with time.
 
The new collections use recycled metals that Sian collects by swapping and bartering her work for her customers' old or broken pieces of jewellery in a closed loop sustainability system.https://www.sejewellery.com/products?utm_source=London+Craft+Week+N...

Handmade Chelsea - The Contemporary Craft and Design Fair
 
We feel it's important for you to have events to look forward to later in the year, just as we are excited about Handmade Chelsea - The Contemporary Craft and Design Fair (13 - 15 November).
 
From selection in May, we start to work with you over the spring and summer months, connecting you to our audience who are well-informed and great supporters of the craft sector - many of whom have been in touch to say they are looking forward to our annual event, now celebrating its 14th year.
 
As a direct selling event taking place six weeks before Christmas, Handmade Chelsea continues to celebrate the best in high-end design and craftsmanship. We are seeking over 100 highly-skilled, international and UK-based makers who will benefit from gaining new buyers, press and industry contacts.
 
Exhibiting with us couldn’t be easier as we have waived our application fees and added something extra; monthly instalments. As spaces are highly sought-after in each discipline, we recommend applying early before the deadline of Thursday 30 April. https://www.handmadeinbritain.co.uk/event/handmade-chelsea-the-cont...

SNAG- After weeks of deliberation and countless thoughtful conversations and consultations with our lawyer, it is with a heavy heart that we officially announce the cancellation of the 2020 SNAG Conference. Though we have not yet been released from our contract with the conference hotel, we cannot, in good faith, risk the health and safety of anyone involved by proceeding with our gathering. Some of you may be disappointed by this news. Some will be relieved. Chances are it will not come as a big surprise at this point, and like so much of the news around this world crisis, will bring a mix of emotions.
 
Please watch the video above and then for detailed information please go here:
CONFERENCE CANCELLATION INFORMATION
We thank you for your support and patience as we work through the cancellation process and hope you all are staying well.
 
Sincerely,
 
SNAG Board and Staff
