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.

CinBA call for contemporary makers
Deadline: 30 March 2012

The CinBA project invites expressions of interest from contemporary makers to become part of an international, interdisciplinary research project. This is a unique opportunity to engage with and reinterpret materials and objects from the very origins of craft production, whilst broadening networks within and beyond the contemporary craft community.

Creativity and Craft Production in the Middle and Late Bronze Age (CinBA) is a major three year HERA-funded project led by Dr Jo Sofaer at the University of Southampton. CinBA partners are University of Cambridge, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim, Norway), The Archaeological Museum - Zagreb (Croatia), National Museum of Denmark (Copenhagen, Denmark), Natural History Museum Vienna (Austria), Lands of Legends Archaeological Park Lejre (Denmark), and the Crafts Council.

The project provides opportunities for makers to explore the role that the contemporary craft maker can play in archaeological enquiry, bringing material expertise and creative skills. The research is structured around four themes - the qualities of materials; motifs and skills; spatial and temporal trends; and the perception of prehistoric craft today. We are calling for makers at any career stage and working in any contemporary craft discipline, who have an innovative approach to their practice and are intrigued by the ancient past or archaeology.

This year we will be moving to an on-line application process and because of this we have had to delay the call for entries until the 1st of April.
