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.

Hannah Gallery presents the first solo show with Gigi Mariani in Barcelona. After his participation at the group exhibition The Alchemical Egg, Visions and Revelations of an Enigma in 2017, the Italian artist is featuring now Beyond the Black, introducing a selection of 14 new works, six Rings, five Brooches, two Necklaces, and one Bracelet. Research on works is focusing on the reduction of his language to the minimalistic expression and the geometry as well as leaving behind the regular use of the black niello as a central element to become a single accent on the pieces. https://hannahgallerybarcelona.net/exhibitions/beyond-black-gigi-ma...

Make Your Future: celebrating craft in the classroom

November 21st, 10am- 1pm, Thomas Tallis School, London SE3 9PX

 

The Crafts Council are hosting an event to demonstrate the importance of making in our schools.   We still have places available and we’re keen to welcome as many teachers, school SLTs and colleagues from the craft, cultural and FE/ HE sectors as possible— so please do share news of the event with your networks. (there is also a tweet to share below)

 

We’re looking forward to a really collaborative, galvanising event that will leave delegates with practical tools to develop the craft offer in their setting, wherever that may be! Highlights will include:

 

  • Lightning talks, featuring:

 

  • Vicky Bone, art teacher at Beckfoot Upper Heaton School in Bradford on fusing craft and science through knit and computer-aided design
  • Deepa Vekaria, Art and DT lead at Woodfield School on the transformational potential of craft in special school settings
  • Michelle Bernard, Executive Head Teacher and Partnership Leader for Halstow and Horn Park Schools, on the challenges of craft at primary level
  • Views from the Crafts Council, parents and young people about why craft education matters

 

  • Practical activities— from ceramics to sublimation printing— led by Thomas Tallis staff and students

 

  • Insight into craft careers from Cox London— leading a Q&A on how they’ve built their 70-person strong craft business

 

  • An exclusive resource pack including our brand-new Craft Skills Progression framework (EYFS- KS2), Craft Careers Pack and Craft Education snapshot infographic

 

Tweet:

Join @CraftsCouncilUK for Celebrating Craft in the Classroom— a morning of quick-fire case studies, hands-on activity, and lively debate about how we can ensure hands-on making is an essential part of every child's education https://bit.ly/317nEhr

Later this month, Stuart will be at the GIA Alumni meeting in London giving a presentation entitled "Bringing Traceable & Responsibly Mined Gemstones to International Markets".
 
He will be talking about Moyo Gemstones, our new gemstone project in Tanzania, where we are collaborating with the women miners in the Tanga region. Stuart will explain how Nineteen48 is working in partnership with Pact and Anza Gems to bring traceable and responsibly mined gemstones directly from the miners to the international jewellery market and the benefits that brings to the artisanal mining communities.
 
Tickets are available now. We look forward to seeing you there! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bringing-traceable-responsibly-mined-g...
