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.

Artists are not expected to pay space or commission charges, instead they decide what percentage of their profits are donated to a charity of their choice. The first show met with incredible success and resulted in almost all of the work being sold and two artists being offered future commissions. To apply email arteca@book-cycle.org

Outside in 2012: Surgery Day

Criteria: These surgery days are open to any artist who feels they are a match for the project. They provide you with assistance to set up your own online gallery and submit your work to the Outside In 2012, National Open Art Competition. Outside In aims to provide a platform for artists who find it difficult to access the art world either because of mental health issues, disability, health, social circumstance or because their work does not conform to what is normally considered as art.

Institute of Making
Taste of Materials - Volunteers Needed

 
Hello....
 
Do you fancy taking part in an experiment we are running to investigate further The Taste of Materials?
 
Our next round of experiments are about to begin and we are looking for willing volunteers to donate an hour of their time.
 
More information can be found below.
 
Best wishes,
Institue of Making
 
-----------------------------


‘Circular email for use for recruitment of volunteers for study ref: BDM/10/11-105, approved by Biomedical and Health Sciences, Dentistry, Medicine (BDM) and Natural and Mathematical Sciences Research Ethics Sub-Committee (RESC). This project contributes to the College's role in conducting research, and teaching research methods. You are under no obligation to reply to this email, however if you choose to, participation in this research is voluntary and you may withdraw at anytime.’

We would like to invite you to participate in an original Institute of Making research study entitled ‘The perception of material samples through oral sensation’. The work is designed to investigate how we perceive solid objects that are put in the mouth, such as cutlery.

In the study, you will be asked to test a variety of lolly sticks by putting them in your mouth. The lolly sticks are made from different materials typically used for cutlery, namely metals, woods, plastics and glass. You will then be asked to compare the sensations of the different materials, and your answers will be recorded numerically. During your tasting of the lolly sticks you will be requested to wear a blindfold, but this will only be for short periods at a time. 

To be a participant in the study, you must be between 18 and 65 years of age and in good general health and not pregnant. In addition, you must not be suffering from a cold at the time of the test, or suffering from any general medical condition known to compromise your senses of taste and smell. If you agree to participate, the study will be conducted in the Materials Library at King’s College London, Strand campus and will last approximately 1 hour in total.

If you are interested in participating or would like further information, please send an email to supinya.wongsriruksa@kcl.ac.uk with your contact details. Full details will be available on the Participant Information Sheet which you will be sent.

We look forward to hearing from you.
