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.

  COLLECT, the prestigious international art fair returns to the Saatchi Gallery in London this May.  Following the high profile success of Crafts magazine’s COLLECT Show Guide in 2011, we are producing the Guide again this year.

I am sharing this information with you in advance so that you have time to consider it and include it in your marketing plans for the summer.

Email chollingshead@publishingmatters.co.uk or 
+44(0)1395 576 829 for more information.
   


For events and exhibitions taking place during or after COLLECT, this is the perfect opportunity to attract the attention of the world’s collectors, enthusiasts and designer-makers in the world of contemporary applied art.

I'll be happy to discuss a special print and online campaign package that includes Crafts magazine, the COLLECT Show Guide and a banner on our website. www.craftsmagazine.org.uk

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Charlotte Hollingshead

Opportunity to submit work for BOOK about PATINAS.

Deadline is February 27.

I recommend you use the Professional Guidelines document TOP TEN TIPS for Getting Into a Juried Exhibition, Show, Book or Magazine to refine your submission.
http://www.harriete-estel-berman.info/profguidelines/TOPTEN.html

Quarto Publishing is currently working on a book presentation about metal patination, a practical guide for jewellers and sculptors. We are a practical art and craft publisher based in London. Quarto Publishing is responsible for some of the best illustrated practical jewellery books published internationally. Please check us out on www.quarto.com for more information.

As mentioned this book is in its very early stages (Matt Runfola is the author and we are in the process of developing the book's content with him). The book will contain: techniques, recipes and sample swatches. In addition, techniques/recipes will be shown in the context of finished examples of jewellery and sculptural works.

We are currently looking for pictures of finished examples to use in the development of this book, and - ultimately - in the actual book. If this is a technique you use and if you're interested in submitting a selection of images for us to consider, then I would love to hear from you. Our only requirements at this stage are that the pictures are high res and, in due course, answer a couple of questions to help write the caption (what inspired the piece; what appeals to you about the art patination and so on).

Newly formed British jewellery collective seeks members to take part in an application for a group selling exhibition at SIERAAD International Jewellery Art Fair, Amsterdam, 1 – 4 November 2012.www.sieraadartfair.com 

We are looking for eight jewellers, who are based in the U.K. to share the space costing €500 each plus VAT. If our collective is selected by SIERAAD there will be a non-refundable deposit of €150 to secure your space, with the remaining balance payable later in the year. 

We would love all participants to attend the fair, but recognise that this is not always possible; therefore we are offering two options,
Option A
If you are able to attend the show, the total cost will be simply your portion of the stand.
Option B
If you are unable to attend, we ask for the cost of the stand, and for every item sold/commission taken, a small fee of 10% of the cost of the item will be deducted- to cover the additional costs of setting up and manning your work over the duration of the show. 

The deadline for the collective selection is the 5 March. 

Please send 5 x 72dpi images of your work and a CV, not forgetting to state Option A or B, to info(at)melaniecodarin.com
