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.

Ex Lab is inviting expressions of interest from visual arts, craft and media artists for 5 specific commissions plus a number of 'open brief' opportunities as part of the Ex Lab programme. The commissions offer a supported research period, fee, production and installation costs to create site responsive work for temporary installation at outdoor and indoor locations on the coast and in galleries and non-arts venues across Dorset.
