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.

Open Day: Slime
 
Date: Saturday 24th March
Time: 1-5pm
Location: Institute of Making, Malet Place, UCL, London, WC1E 7JE Map
It's free, open to all, no bookings, just drop in from 1pm. Gates close at 5pm.
 
Join us for an extravaganza of materials and making around the theme of SLIME.
For one day only, the Institute will be transformed into a state-of-the-art slime lab, with ingredients and accessories to allow everyone to make the slime of their dreams. Once mixed and styled, test your new precious sample at our Slime Olympics; could yours be the stickiest, slipperiest or stringiest slime of them all? We will provide a purpose-built arena and measuring equipment to test any slime made on the day, or brought from home if you are an avid slime maker.
