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.

In addition, and with the support of the Bridge Awards, Cove Park will offer a two-week residency for an emerging visual artist based in Scotland. These residencies will all take place during May to September 2016.

London-based Lynne MacLachlan combines technology with the artistic process of jewellery design. Her 3D printed pieces make use of light, shape, and colour as avenues of experimentation and blur the boundaries between art, fashion, technology, and design.

About

Award winning jewellery artist Zoe Robertson is a practice based researcher at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University. Her current studio practice explores the notion of Jewellery and Performance, in which the relationship between the object, the body and space is explored.

An open-minded approach to challenging the boundaries of jewellery coupled with an intuitive relationship with materials is the driving force and motivation behind her work.
