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.

Meet the Makers
Tuesday 19th November
18:00 – 21:00

Handmade in Britain would like to welcome you to a festive celebration of contemporary design & craftsmanship, a unique shopping experience like no other.

For one evening on Tuesday 19th November our pop-up will be hosted by some of our favourite designer-makers for a very special Meet the Maker event.

On hand throughout the evening to talk about their work and showcase their collections, our makers invite you to discover the story behind that perfect gift and learn how your favourite piece is made. Come and browse, buy or commission unique handmade gifts and join us for a mince pie amongst the festive splendour of the Christmas Arcade.

Dazzle@oxo



Dazzle will be making a short move down the South Bank into the iconic Oxo Tower Wharf, transforming into Dazzle@oxo...

Up until this year Dazzle, the UK's largest selling contemporary jewellery exhibition, has called the National Theatre their London home. In 2013 they will be showcasing over 50 jewellery designers from 22 countries and selling 3000 unique handmade pieces right here in our gallery@oxo.

Along with established jewellery designers such as Gail Klevan and Jane Adam and our very own Josef Koppmann, Dazzle will be introducing 12 new young designers. Graduate Kelly Munro will be bringing her wonderful statement pieces, using branded wood, knotted rubber and intricately saw pierced metal, each inspired by the north Scottish coastline. While fellow emerging designer, Chris Boland, will be bringing his strong bold designs using semi-precious stones.

For 32 years, Dazzle has provided a much anticipated insight into all that is happening in contemporary jewellery. The showcase is a place to find both internationally collected names and to discover new talent, hand picked from graduate shows by the Dazzle team. Don't miss out on viewing (and buying) these wearable works of art on display in the gallery@oxo throughout November and the festive season.
