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.

The future of jewellery
 
UK-based creative technology studio Square Circle reimagined a traditional bracelet, turning it into a digital companion.
 
Smart watches are already mainstream, but those generally have a small screen and function more like an addition to your smart phone rather than a replacement.
 
The Digital Bangle Assistant is a bracelet of which the entire surface functions as an interface. When not actively used, the bracelet could show a downloadable jewellery-like design that matches your outfit, but it can also display messages and receive notifications. The design therefore combines the aesthetics of jewellery with the functionality of a smart phone...

Make a silver spoon with Abigail Brown, 13 December
Spoon carving with traditional tools, with Barn the Spoon, 27-29 January
