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.

Handmade Oxford, The International Contemporary Arts Festival returns to the beautiful surroundings of Waterperry Gardens, from Thursday 25 - Sunday 28 June 2020.

Taking place across a series of purpose-built marquees on the lawn in front of Waterperry House, Handmade Oxford presents a four day festival of over 250 design-led creatives in celebration of craft, design, fine art, and sculpture alongside a fascinating range of talks from The Arts Society, onsite workshops and daily demonstrations brought to us by our exhibitors.

Building on the success of Handmade Oxford 2019, we are expanding our site plan to not only embrace a wider range of demonstrators but to also incorporate a variety of new disciplines including Artisan Food.

Hannah Gallery presents the first solo show with Gigi Mariani in Barcelona. After his participation at the group exhibition The Alchemical Egg, Visions and Revelations of an Enigma in 2017, the Italian artist is featuring now Beyond the Black, introducing a selection of 14 new works, six Rings, five Brooches, two Necklaces, and one Bracelet. Research on works is focusing on the reduction of his language to the minimalistic expression and the geometry as well as leaving behind the regular use of the black niello as a central element to become a single accent on the pieces.
