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 deadline for applying for next year’s a-n Clore Visual Artist Fellowship is 12 noon on Thursday 29 November 2018. This pioneering programme aims to develop and strengthen leadership across the cultural and creative sectors in the UK.
a-n’s support will ensure a visual artist is part of next year’s programme, helping artists become visible leaders both within their sector and beyond it.
The fellowship runs from September 2019 until July 2020, including two residential leadership courses. Clore Fellows benefit from a diverse peer group and access to experienced leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, artists, experts and extensive networks.
Removing the economic barriers to participation as much as possible the a-n fellowship is fully funded and includes a self-employed bursary of £15,000. See here for further details of what is covered cloreleadership.org.
