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.

WEARABILITY AND THE POWER OF THE SMALL ART
An Outsider's View
by Sarah Thornton
 
"I recently encountered a fascinating subculture, populated mostly by women who make, buy, and sell small objects in a vast range of materials that they sometimes install on their bodies."
 
Sarah Thornton, an ethnographer and sociologist of art, outlines six reasons why art jewelry could have an advantage over fine art, but also points out some ways the field might reposition itself in order to garner more respect.

We are thrilled to announce we have confirmed one of our first judges will be Bobby White, acclaimed jeweller to the stars, who has designed for Rihanna, Jay-Z and Beyoncé to name but a few.
At our Make Your Mark event on the 5th February 2019, we will be presenting awards for both finished pieces or design drawings of jewellery and silverware items that best celebrate the London hallmark.
This exciting competition is open to recent graduates, apprentices and current students with both cash prizes and unique career enhancing opportunities available. Award winners will also have their work displayed at Goldsmiths’ Hall during the Make Your Mark event and receive a special certificate.
