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.

On March 13-16, 2019, the largest international jewellery and amber show Amber Trip in the Baltic States will be held in Vilnius. This is an exclusive event bringing together professional jewellers, designers and customers from the outermost countries of the world. The trends in the global jewellery and amber market, the most advanced jewellery industry technologies and the latest pieces of work of professional jewellers will be exhibited here. As every year, there will be a great number of events dedicated to both, jewellery professionals as well as exhibitors and visitors.

Contemporary jewelry world has been confronted to a glass ceiling for more than 40 years and nothing constructive comes out from this kind of attitude. Klimt02 presents the second interview of the serie Market & Contemporary Jewellery. A conversation with Elena and Chiaralice Rizzi from OhMyBlue gallery.

Little has changed in the ten years since John Holden first shone a spotlight on the damaging disconnect between the arts sector and the public at large. Could the mass realisation of personal creativity provide a way forward?

How To Develop Creative Confidence
If you want to produce a body of work you’re proud of, you must have a creative point of view.
