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.

Melanie's creative process involves using original illustrations printed onto metal, often combining these with other materials or found objects. Multi-layered, detailed and colourful, her pieces can be seen as three-dimensional illuminated manuscripts. https://www.itv.com/itvcreates?utm_source=Permanent+-+Comms&utm...(EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_1_12_2018_COPY_01)&mc_cid=c83261da1f&mc_eid=7ca5d70cc2

Gallery Ra Closes its doors today: Owner Paul Derrez opened Galerie Ra in 1976 and since then he has been the driving force in developing the gallery into a leading establishment for jewellery design.
