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.

Government support: For the self employed and people in business partnerships, HMRC offer grants. If you are eligible, you should be able to make your claim over the next few days. You can check whether you are eligible and check the date when you can submit your claim here.
If you're not eligible for this scheme, look at the Bounce Back Loans: interest free for one year, 2.5% interest after that. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-for-a-coronavirus-bounce-back-loan

  • Crafts Council has been working in partnership with CHEAD to explore how we can best support craft-based Higher Education courses and students during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first step in this process is gathering some information about how your institutions are tackling the lockdown. We’d be really grateful if you could complete this short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K8SR6GX. You may also receive this survey from CHEAD; apologies for cross-posting, we’re just keen not to miss anyone out!
