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.

Over the past few weeks Andrew and his wife Louise have been regularly livestreaming a Q&A hour on YouTube. This has been a huge success with well over 250 viewers watching as well as participating with questions in the chat box.

following to the current coronavirus situation spreading around the world, the organizing committee of the “Gioielli in Fermento” competition has taken the important decision to re-open the call for entries and to postpone its deadline for presentation to January 2021.

Consequentially this action will generate a double edition in the next Spring!
