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.

Crafts Council UK decided to postpone the opening of the Crafts Council Gallery to safeguard their staff and visitors, but, the craft community is stronger than ever. Keep connected with their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Due to the epidemic, Glasgow has shut its public museums, including The Lighthouse. So we have closed the Connections | Connessioni exhibition at this venue. The exhibition is planned to open in Livorno on 6th June, but this will not be confirmed until May at the earliest.

Please all keep safe and healthy.
