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.

An event entirely dedicated to jewellery
 
PARCOURS BIJOUX is a tri-annual gathering around more than 50 jewellery events, held in Paris. It’s a rare opportunity for professionals and the general public to discover this field, full of different expressions.
The association D’un bijou à l’autre, the structure responsible for its organization, launches a call for projects for the next edition, which will be held from the 6th to the 25th october 2020.
PARCOURS BIJOUX CFP wants to be open to a very wide span of makers and thinkers : Artists, Contemporary Jewellery makers, Visual Artists, Photographers, Experts, Historians, performers …, having a practice or research related to the intimate and complex relation between Body and adornment.
A jury composed of experts on the field and members of D’un bijou à l’autre, will be responsible for making a selection on the submitted projects.

Schmuckism, Jewellery and Social Reflection.
For many decades the questioning of one’s own traditions stood predominantly at the fore of auteur jewellery; now in the work of a new generation of artists, the medium has largely disengaged itself from its own self-referencing. Instead, jewellery is understood as a possibility and an imperative for the reflection of socially relevant content, whereby topics such as ecology, the consumer society, identities and feminism are directly expressed through the medium of jewellery.
