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.

n our blog we caught up with contemporary jeweller Carol Hunt: "For me jewellery is a form of self-expression and I am essentially exploring the complexities of life. There are particular memories and experiences that I often come back to, but I’m not trying to ‘make’ those, it’s more about saying something on the contradictions and complexities of life that we all experience. That’s why I often play with contrasts such as light/dark, strength/delicacy etc in my work. I hope that this means that the wearer can decide what the piece means to them."
