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 jeweller, maker of small objects and also a solo twin, Suzanne Potter’s absorbing collection of works revolves around the notions of twinness and identity. Potter's elegant, spare and thought-provoking pieces celebrate being one half of two, and collectively commemorate her lost twin sister, marking a new path of innate enquiry, and emotive subject matter. https://www.londoncraftweek.com/makers_partners_experts/suzanne-pot...

Drawn to the Earth's natural treasures; British jewellery designer Ruth Tomlinson is renowned for her celebration of unconventional beauty; creating ethereal, wearable treasures in minute detail that draw the eye in with a sense of discovery and wonder. Since graduating with an MA from London’s Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth continues to investigate the unpredictable and push boundaries of perceived preciousness in her critically acclaimed jewellery collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of UK jewellery designers, and her unique designs and luxuriously wearable adornments are conceived with the notion of being treasured forever.
