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.

Collect 2020 Volunteer Opportunity
 
We are looking for volunteers to support our Collect Fair being held at Somerset House in London, from 27th Feb- 1st March 2020.
 
Collect presents an unrivalled opportunity to see and buy exquisite craft-led works by artists and makers represented by British and international galleries. Filling three wings of Somerset House, Collect profiles the exceptional skill and intellectual rigour behind contemporary craft, featuring works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles alongside makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques.
 
Collect forms a key part of the Crafts Council’s work to make the UK the best place to create, see, collect and learn about contemporary craft. To find out more about Collect and the Crafts Council, visit www.collect2020.org.uk
