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.

The date letter for 2018 is a lower case t - it is set inside a square shield design with chamfered corners. We started to apply these to your work from the first working day of the new year - Tuesday 2 January.

The Crafts Council’s latest research report, Supporting makers to export, explores how UK makers working in a range of disciplines are exporting internationally. We are keen to strengthen makers’ export capability and to gain insight into craft exports before trade relations and laws change following Brexit. This small (non-scientific) survey of makers’ needs identifies some of the barriers to exporting and shows that a quarter of respondents’ sales are from international work. The report will inform our programming to support makers’ professional development.
