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.

Nineteen48 -Working with Kandy Kids in Sri Lanka


In February and March, Steve from Kandy Kids was in Sri Lanka as usual, helping out a number of children's homes, orphanages, and underprivileged families, mostly in the areas around Negombo and Kandy. Steve used the funds raised since his previous visit to provide food, clothes, school books and other essential items to as many children as possible.


Thanks to the amazing contributions from our generous sponsors and the money raised from numerous car boot sales and other activities in 2019, Steve was able to continue the work he started way back in 2007.


We are very proud to partner with Kandy Kids and, this year, Stuart was also able to volunteer a little bit of his time as a painter and decorator!


We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who buy gemstones from us and allow us to support good causes like Kandy Kids.

HOCP at HOME
In response to the current health crisis we are delighted to launch HOCP at HOME.
Cancelling our forthcoming programme at Cove Park has been unfortunate but we are delighted to offer Hands-On workshops online while you are all at home. We have commissioned a number of our former residents to create short films which we hope will give an insight into their work and provide inspiration for projects you can do at home. These will air every Saturday over the next few weeks.
The first - presented by visual artist Hrafnhildur Hallsdottir and edited by Duncan Marquiss - will go live this Saturday, 11 April, at 10.00am on the https://www.facebook.com/handsoncovepark/

The Japanese-American artist’s wire sculptures have been likened to birds’ nests. Here’s a first look at some of the designs.
