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.

Running professional development online? Promote your online training or networking events FREE during the lockdown

  1. Be sure your online event is about professional development or support for those working in the sector. (Wonderful though they are, we can’t promote all the brilliant online activities and opportunities you are offering to your audiences)
  2. Be sure the event is to take place within the next four weeks
  3. Upload the details as a Premium Event up to 4 weeks on the ArtsProfessional website

The online form asks for billing details, but you can ignore them!  

We simply want you to be able to reach our readers.

We hope that ACJ regional groups will be able to organise digital remote gatherings via Zoom and other platforms, but they will let their members know of any plans.

If you have any projects or ideas for other members, send them to Haru for the e-bulletin - enquiries@acj.org.uk

Very best wishes from the ACJ team

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/
