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.

The spillover effect


If we could fully understand the impact of arts and culture on wider society, would this change arts strategies and policies? Jonathan Vickery charts the progression of thinking on the ‘spillover’ effect.

Rediscover traditional crafts with a modern twist, learn a new skill and meet the makers behind some of our favourite products.

In partnership with Crafts magazine, the Barbican Shop are hosting a season of talks, installations and workshops on the theme of making and craftsmanship.

Make! is a celebration of innovation and creativity in craft. We're showcasing the creme de la creme of contemporary makers; those with a modern take on conventional crafts such as weaving, casting and bookbinding, and those redefining it entirely with groundbreaking processes and exciting new materials.

Following our Makers programme, Make! seeks to further the Barbican's support of up and coming design talent, challenge perceptions of craft and inspire you to try something new.

The only way to beat the robots is to back arts education in schools

If you’re doing a job involving creativity it’s less likely to be replaced by software: robots are hopeless on that front

New Arts Council England fund for individual creatives
 
 
Artists, producers and curators must have at least three years’ experience to apply to the new fund, but will not have to secure match funding or deliver public engagement outcomes.

Craft Journey: Theresa Nguyen

To celebrate National Careers Week we ask makers about their career path.
What I Do

As an Artist Silversmith, I specialise in designing and hand-making the finest pieces, from objets d’art and tableware to luxury gifts and bespoke lighting that will both delight and enable the clients that I collaborate with to mark special moments in their lives, give precious gifts to their loved ones and enrich spaces that they live or work in.
