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.

We want to celebrate and honour the craftsmanship and every single person who creates soulful pieces with their own hands.
 
A tribute to all makers for their wisdom, storytelling, and for building history with beautiful creations through ancient techniques and raw materials. We stand up for the ones that keep the art of craftsmanship alive. A desire to reveal the process as a peer of the finished product itself.
 
In this journey from the past towards a new cultural progress, we are committed to promoting creativity and innovation, to respecting traditions and safeguarding the heritage.
 
We support those who devote themselves to the excellence of craftsmanship. https://www.covetfoundation.com/

In the 3 years since its inception, the British Craft Pavilion became the go-to exhibition for high-end craft during the London Design Festival; 2019 sees the pavilion open its doors to global makers, becoming the International Craft Pavilion.
 
The focus will be on functional and contemporary craft from around the world, and from across the full spectrum of craft disciplines, inviting both individual makers and organisations such as international crafts councils to represent their nations craft at the International Craft Pavilion.
 
As a response to a call for a more global representation of the crafts, the International Craft Pavilion will become a key destination for the Fair's 29,000 visitors from 77 countries, alongside the London Design Festival's audience of collectors, retailers and industry experts.

Monique Jeffrey-Jones
Jewellery Showcase
Monique makes Cornish moorland inspired jewellery. The imposing stones found in Cornwall continue to be a prominent source of inspiration. Monique is drawn to their irregular forms and asymmetrical compositions. In this series of work, Monique applies vitreous enamel to obtain a drawn fractured quality. She over fires her enamels, then rubs them back travelling through this process repeatedly. Monique oxidises the sterling silver black providing contrast to the coloured gemstones. https://us6.campaign-archive.com/?u=f9762e0bca4dd19f3b4f1f1ce&i...
