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.

A newly-released Arts Council England report finds that portfolio careers are the norm among artists, and that the sector is dominated by women, who earn less from their art practice than men.

The program offers grants up to $2.500 to assist an emerging curator or curators in executing an exhibition focused on jewelry and/or metalwork.

An exhibition of work from 45 years of Caroline Broadhead’s diverse practice
 
11 January – 6 February 2019 | Lethaby Gallery
 
Bringing together work from across four decades, this exhibition reflects the breadth of Caroline Broadhead’s pioneering creative output.
 
Using jewellery design as a departure point, Broadhead’s objects were designed to be worn on the body and changed through touch and interaction. Further encompassing sculpture, installation, performance, textiles and photography, her practice is concerned with the borders of the individual – between inside and outside, public and private and the balance between materiality and image. Often working in collaboration, Broadhead’s works are activated by bodies and performers, examining the demarcation of human physicality.
