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.

This special exhibition of rarely seen silverwork from The Sheffield Assay Office collection is a unique opportunity to see work by some of the finest silversmiths of their generations.

More creativity, more people, more places
What do Romford’s shopping centre, Middlesbrough FC and Bradford’s teaching hospital have in common? They’re all set to take their part in transforming the arts and culture in their communities.
Thanks to National Lottery players, we’re investing £17.5 million in 13 places across England that have some of the least engagement in arts and culture.
