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.

Gems & Gemmology Workshop in Dorset

Would you like to know more about where gemstones come from? How about learning some techniques for identifying them? Or do you simply have a love of sparkly things?

If so, we'll be running another of our popular gemstone and gemmology workshops on Sunday 13th August at Flux 'n' Flame Jewellery School in Dorset, where we can teach you all that and more.

Come along and learn about the journey of gems from their source and how they are mined, as well as gemstone properties, identification and valuation. We still have a couple of spaces left, so you can sign up now!

To book this course please email us now - info@nineteen48.com
