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.

Madebyhandonline: Rachel Butlin seeks to challenge the concepts of contemporary interactive and wearable jewellery producing a range of high end, mixed material wearable pieces. She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small scale sculpture that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer. Carefully considering material combination and placement, her work often explores bespoke materials, evoking curiosity between the piece and the wearer themselves. https://madebyhandonline.com/collections/rachel-butlin

The awards (three individual artist residencies in Greece) may boost the jewellers' imagination and enrich their understanding of the meaning and uses of jewellery.
Greece's 5.000 years old fascinating jewellery tradition can become an indispensable source of inspiration for every jewelry artist who sees beyond the obvious.
 
 
Key dates:
12th of March, the last day of application.
16th of March, the day of the award announcement.
2nd of December, 2019 - 6th of December 2020, awards winners may choose a residency week in between.
