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.

Applications are now being invited for The Contemporary Craft Festival 2012.  The Festival is now one of the largest and most prestigious craft events in the UK.

With a lively and inspirational atmosphere, the Festival has built up a loyal following of 8000 visitors and we represent over 165 of the UK’s finest designer makers. Our additional on-site educational programme includes demonstrations, workshops for all ages, masterclasses and lectures by some of the UK’s leading names.
All set in a marqueed village in idyllic parkland on the edge of Dartmoor in South Devon with excellent transport links via road, train and air.
Selected by an independent panel of judges, The Contemporary Craft Festival is open to designer makers resident in Britain and Ireland working to the highest standard in ceramics, glass, textiles, jewellery, metal, wood, plastics, mixed media, leather, recycled materials and paper.
No paintings, photography or musical instruments. Greetings cards are only accepted as part of a range, not the sole product.

Hello!
I'm really excited to announce the release date for The Art and Design of Metal Clay Jewelry. Putting this publication is a labor of love. This year I had three lovely and talented artists help jury, Emma Baird, Tracey Spurgin and Lesley Messam. Without them, I would never have been about to narrow down 300 entries to 12 months of beautiful jewelry. This publication demonstrates the fantastic work of artists all around the world using metal clay in combination with metalsmithing, enameling, riveting, gemstone setting and so many other techniques.
As an advocate of Metal Clay, I am interested in making others aware of its potential in our field. 

I hope you will take a peek of their work and read about all the details at: http://www.hollygage.com/pages/theartanddesignofmetalclayjewelrycal... 
Many thanks for your support!!!!
~ Holly
