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.

Dear up-and-coming jewellery designer


We wanted to let you know about a new jewellery design competition being run by QVC, one of the UK’s largest multi-media retailers, in
association with Professional Jeweller magazine.

... QVC has launched a ‘Hidden Gems’ competition designed to identify a
young, up-and-coming jewellery designer who is graduating from their
course in 2012.

Entering the competition couldn’t be simpler - entrants should submit one design for a statement piece of
women’s jewellery in the form of a drawing or CAD. Submission is in the
form of a drawing or CAD. The judges are looking for an imaginative
design that has the most potential for retail success. The closing date
for applications is Friday 2 December 2011 and the winner will be
announced in January.

Hopefully you have seen the posters advertising the competition and take a look at www.qvcuk.com/hiddengems a href="http://www.qvcuk.com/hiddengems" target="_blank" rel="nofollow nofollow">http://www.qvcuk.com/hiddengems> for more information on the entry criteria.

The competition will feature in Professional Jeweller magazine and the competition winner will receive:

· 10 boxes of jewellery off-cuts from the QVC warehouse for them to use in their own creations, which we estimate are worth thousands of pounds
in value. The boxes include a mixture of semi-precious stones,
freshwater pearls and metals from items damaged upon delivery to the
warehouse and therefore not viable to be sold.
· a question and answer session with jewellery designer, Tomasz Donocik

The competition will be judged by three notable figures in the commercial jewellery industry:

· Gemma Savage - Senior Jewellery Buyer, QVC
· Rachael Taylor - Editor-in-Chief, Professional Jeweller & WatchPro
· Tomasz Donocik - Retail Jeweller Designer of the Year and shortlisted
for Designer of the Year at the 2011 UK Jewellery Awards


For further information, email sarah.catterick@flagshipconsul

Good luck and we look forward to receiving your entry!

Their members’ work will be available to purchase from shop maltings, Farnham Maltings’ craft and vintage store.
