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.

Meet 8 Indigenous Beaders Who Are Modernizing Their Craft
 
Beadwork is a pillar of Indigenous design. While various tribes hold different design specialties—the Navajo, for example, are best known for their weaving and textiles—much of the Native community across North America makes use of glass beads in some aspect. Beads can be found on everything, from contemporary art and fashion designs to more traditional regalia pieces found at powwows. “In some cases, [regalia] involves hundreds of hours of beadwork,” says Molina Parker, an Oglala Sioux beader, profiled below. “Most of the time, you can tell what tribe someone is from just from the style of beadwork and imagery they use.”
