A selection of ACJ Members' exhibitions


2021 Open Article Count:  193

ACJThis year, like everything else in these strange times, the ACJ members' exhibition is a little different! 

The aim of the 2021 Open members' exhibition is to show a picture of the huge range and variety of our members' designs, materials and techniques - a time capsule of contemporary jewellery in the 2020s, a type of directory of jewellers. All members were encouraged to chose their best or favourite piece from the last few years, using any materials, any techniques and in any style, to be included in this exhibition. And what a fantastic response we received, resulting in a real celebration of all the talent in the ACJ!

The most pressing issue of our modern world is that of the climate emergency. With a continually increasing population, diminishing resources and the uncomfortable warming of the planet we call home, we must respond.

This exhibition shows the great range of pieces on this theme, made by ACJ members.
