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.

Claire Allain
Jewellery Showcase
Having recently returned to the UK after living in New Zealand for ten years, Claire has been experimenting with new techniques. She has been working with a variety of techniques and marrying metals together to create wearable sculptures or as she likes to call them wearable “Sketches”, like little mini contemporary paintings. They are marked or imprinted in some form or another, drilled, enamelled or embellished with firing 24ct gold foil on top.

Thoughfest, the Knowledge Quarter's free public festival, running from the 1–6 October and featuring a packed programme of music, workshops, activities, debates and poetry. Our theme of wellbeing and sustainability has inspired some unmissable ideas and installations from our partners, destined to be over-subscribed. Thankfully there is a way to get early access to the programme and event listings! Sign up to our festival mailing list and receive special offers, news and exclusives. https://confirmsubscription.com/h/t/D831F5884EB029F2

Jewelry is a lifetime commitment for some people. This could not be more evident than it is in artist, Imogene (Tex) Gieling’s exhibition Sixty Years. The pieces selected for the exhibition showcase the wide range of work produced during her illustrious career.
