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.

Less than two weeks left for our Instagram Book Giveaway!

There are three parts to qualify for the contest:

1) Before midnight EST on Wednesday, January 31 post a picture of something casting-related on instagram. (Feel free to interpret this broadly - it could be a person who casts, an everyday object, a picture of your own work, or whatever you deem appropriate! Creativity is good - use it!)

2) In your post, write why you want a free copy of CAST

3) Tag us with @cast.art.and.objects and use the hashtag #castbookgiveaway2018 in your post

We will look at all posts we're tagged in using #castbookgiveaway2018 and announce the winner on Thursday, February 1 with a repost of the winning entry and we'll tag the winner. Be creative in your choice of image and the content of your post. Don't forget the tag and the hashtag as that's how we'll be able to see your entry!

The winner will receive a copy of CAST with a signed custom bookplate. Contest is limited to the continental United States due to shipping costs. ($90 value)
