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.

From November 5, 2017 to January 28, 2018 CODA Museum presents a retrospective of the works of visual artist and jewelry designer Ruudt Peters in the exhibition BRON (Source). BRON gives an overview of Peters’ rebellious jewelry from the early seventies to the more profound works based on the exploration of other cultures, customs, and habits from a more recent period. His work is exhibited in a special multimedia installation that offers a unique view on his work.
