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.

Monique Jeffrey-Jones
Jewellery Showcase
Monique makes Cornish moorland inspired jewellery. The imposing stones found in Cornwall continue to be a prominent source of inspiration. Monique is drawn to their irregular forms and asymmetrical compositions. In this series of work, Monique applies vitreous enamel to obtain a drawn fractured quality. She over fires her enamels, then rubs them back travelling through this process repeatedly. Monique oxidises the sterling silver black providing contrast to the coloured gemstones. https://us6.campaign-archive.com/?u=f9762e0bca4dd19f3b4f1f1ce&i...
