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.

Thought you might be interested in our The Ugly Necklace Contest - A Jewelry Design Competition With A Twist.
3/15/2012 deadline

9th International 2012
The Ugly Necklace Contest
- A Jewelry Design Competition With A Twist

Deadline: 3/15/2012

The contest presents a design challenge not often tackled. Can you put together a well-designed and functional, yet UGLY, necklace?

We are pre-wired to avoid negative things. This makes it easier to end
up with something beautiful. And more difficult to end up with
something Ugly.

Vipa will be looking for an addition to the team in the new year. If you know someone that likes to combine their CAD skills (Rhino) with hands-on time at the bench, then please send them
our way.

Ganoksin Offices are Flooded!

Thailand is currently facing its worst flooding in 50 years.
Floodwaters have swamped more than two-thirds of the country,
submerging complete towns. Hundreds of lives have been tragically
lost. Rice fields and businesses of millions of families have been
severely impacted.

http://www.ganoksin.com/ftp/we -are-flooded-1.jpg

Ganoksin offices are unfortunate to be on the path the flood. At this
moment, our offices are completely inundated. We are very much
isolated, surrounded by a swamp wide as far as the eye can see. Our
only links to the world are email and phone.

At this unfortunate moment, your help is crucial. It is truly needed
deeply appreciated.

We have extended the rules for participation in the amazing Rio
Grande $10,000 Gift Certificate Prizes Giveaway. For every 35$ you
donate to Ganoksin we are offering one entry in the Rio Grande
$10,000 Gift Certificate Prizes Giveaway.

ON THE WIRE - CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Are you a designer or maker wanting to exhibit in Manchester? 

'On The Wire' is a new opportunity at Manchester Craft and Design Centre, which will allow a selection of artists to hang their work from a wire in the beautiful entrance area.  This opportunity is open to any maker working in the UK in any material. 

In May, Charlie Whinney brought us his fabulous steam-bent wooden sculpture, 'Wood For The Trees'. We have now selected our first official 'On The Wire' artist Gemma Truman to fill the space with her fantastic 'hung nests' made from glass and seagrass. If you think your work could follow Gemma's, and would like it to be seen by over 1000 visitors a week, then apply today. 

The wire hangs approx. 19ft above the ground and runs approx. 19ft across; your piece does not need to completely fill this space. Please note visitors will need to walk freely underneath your creation without danger to themselves / without the potential to damage your artwork.

How to apply:

Please send an A4 statement (maximum), 3 images (jpeg, 300dpi) and a completed Application Form to;

ON THE WIRE
Hannah Raeside
Manchester Craft & Design Centre
17 Oak Street
Northern Quarter
Manchester
M4 5JD
United Kingdom

Or by email to: info@craftanddesign.com
