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.

New from Suzanne Claire Jewellery...
 
Made up of interlinking circles, these solid silver studs are adorned with a French knit imprinted pattern, which glistens beautifully as they catch the light. Available in silver or oxidised (blackened) silver, they're perfect for an everyday statement or for that special occasion. https://madebyhandonline.com/products/french-knit-imprinted-magic-c...

Showcasing some of the very best and most original makers of high quality contemporary craft and design, MADE LONDON is a must for makers and craft-buyers alike. At madebyhandonline we are delighted to be sponsors of the show again and will be presenting a maker award over the next few days, as well as enjoying a bit of shopping ourselves!

Cutler Michael May, who makes pocket knives from his workshop in the city, is helping to lead a 21st-century revival of the craft. Thousands of ‘little mesters’ once made small tools and cutlery across Sheffield but the skills have almost disappeared in recent years
Comment by Rebecca Skeels on Saturday

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2017/oct/20/the-an... Shona Marsh creates jewellery and lifestyle objects out of fine metals, woods, crystal and gemstones. The modern and timeless designs are made by hand using traditional silversmithing skills in her studio in Deptford, south-east London
