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.

Exploring the "new normal"
Zine Club | Wed 6 May, 14.00–16.00
 
Normally you'll find us in our Library, collecting things that represent our personal experiences of health. It's been hard adjusting to life working from home, but there's never been a more important time to document what we're all going through. So we've moved our monthly Zine Club online, exploring themes during the pandemic creatively.
The next Zine Club is on Wednesday afternoon over on Instagram Live. Get your pens ready and we’ll show you how to make your very own zine – we hope you’ll join us!

#ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE

In attempt to alleviate some of the COVID-19 stress Matthew Burrows has instigated the artist-led initiative #artistsupportpledge. If you haven't seen it already on social media, the concept is simple; you post images of you work that you are willing to sell for up to £200 each (not including shipping). Then every time you reach £1000 in sales you pledge to buy another artist's work for £200.

"This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level. So make a pledge and post your work with the #artistsupportpledge" - Matthew Burrows https://www.instagram.com/artistsupportpledge/?utm_source=Axisweb+M...
