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.

when art meets jewellery

http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20180316-when-art-meets-jewellery?...

The exhibition includes works by artists from around the globe, including China’s Ai Weiwei and Russia’s Ilya and Emilia Kabako. There are a number of edgy creations from British artists, including Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Anish Kapoor, Gavin Turk and Damien Hirst. One of the most striking objects on display is a ring by the Greek artist Jannis Kounellis which is a mould of his lips, and one of the more inventive pieces featured is a gold-plated potato design by Jacqueline de Jong.

The Golden Age of Silver
Metalworks! Episode 1 of 3

Dan Cruickshank visits Britain's finest country houses, museums and factories as he uncovers the 18th- and 19th-century fascination with silver. Delving into an unsurpassed era of shimmering opulence, heady indulgence and conspicuous consumption, Dan discovers the Georgian and Victorian obsession with this tantalising precious metal which represented status, wealth and excellent taste. He gives us a glimpse of some of the most extensive collections and exquisite pieces of silverware to have ever been made on British shores.

Open Day: Slime
 
Date: Saturday 24th March
Time: 1-5pm
Location: Institute of Making, Malet Place, UCL, London, WC1E 7JE Map
It's free, open to all, no bookings, just drop in from 1pm. Gates close at 5pm.
 
Join us for an extravaganza of materials and making around the theme of SLIME.
For one day only, the Institute will be transformed into a state-of-the-art slime lab, with ingredients and accessories to allow everyone to make the slime of their dreams. Once mixed and styled, test your new precious sample at our Slime Olympics; could yours be the stickiest, slipperiest or stringiest slime of them all? We will provide a purpose-built arena and measuring equipment to test any slime made on the day, or brought from home if you are an avid slime maker.
