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.

Trustee Vacancy
Trustees champion the work of Making Space and serve in a voluntary capacity and with the satisfaction of supporting a distinctive, highly-regarded creative agency. https://makingspace.org/seeking-new-trustees-2020-2/?utm_source=hs_...

Space available: This Spring we say a fond farewell to two of our resident makers, who are both moving on to bigger and better things. Francis Campbell will be working on a major Netflix series while fashion designer Liam Davis heads off to London, the heart of the nation's fashion scene.
This means we have two studio vacancies, so if you want to take the next step in your creative career, these start-up spaces are the ideal base for your progression. Tenants have 24/7 access to their own professional studio space, as well as the benefits of being amongst creatives and receiving the support and guidance from the Making Space team.
If you would like to find out more and apply for one of the studios, head over to our website and see what having your own studio can do for your business.
