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.

SARAH RACHEL BROWN
Producer of the Perceived Value Podcast
by Adriane Dalton
 
"Launched in 2017 and currently in its second season, Perceived Value is a biweekly podcast produced by contemporary jeweler Sarah Rachel Brown. Brown investigates the economics of surviving as a creative by asking honest questions about how creative people—predominantly craft artists—make their livings and support themselves."

MAKING FACES – A Jewellery Playbook
Manon van Kouswijk
 
13 November - 8 December
 
From a beaded object that looks like a face to an abstract ornament that frames the face:
Am I wearing you or are you wearing me?
MAKING FACES - A Jewellery Playbook is a new project by Manon van Kouswijk that consists of 65 necklaces and an artist publication in which their multiple appearances are revealed. It is also designed as a manual, both a how-to guide and an invitation to the audience to create their own faces and other forms with the necklaces.
