ACJ showed a group of 25 jewellers at Treasure, the flagship show of

London Jewellery Week 2011.

As last year, the work showed a whole range of styles and materials.





Gold, cut stones and conflict-free diamonds (from Ruth Wood & Asimi), eclectic pieces with found objects (Jack Cunningham, Dauvit Alexander), titanium & mixed metals from Terry Hunt and Lynne Bartlett, three very different styles of enamelling (Ruth Ball, Marianna Hadass, Tamizan Savill), glass (Frances Federer), thread & silk (Liz Willis, Jan Hinchliffe McCutcheon), various plastics (Samantha Queen, Islay Spalding), and a range of very individual work  from Karen Dell'Armi, Katja Fox, Amy Lee Hubbard, Mayza Joao, Heather Stowell, Tricia Taylor, Frances Julie Whitelaw and Kat Zahran. The two cases looked beautiful!

The show had added a Trade Day, and there was a launch party for FairTrade and Fair Mined Gold in the Essence pavilion. Goldsmiths' Fair held its first event away from Goldsmiths' Hall with some 40 jewellers. Many ACJ members had their own stands. Altogether a bigger event this year.


The ACJ Prize Draw was again popular, on offer a commissioned piece worth £250 for the winner's choice of jeweller participating. Stephanie Perry had the winning ticket, and she nominated Liz Willis to make her piece.

Last year's winner Pamela Henry drew the prize, wearing her commission from Linda Tyler: a chain mail necklace with double sided catch and an alternative catch - three variations in one piece.

The Steward volunteers did a grand job welcoming people and showing the work, thanks to all who attended. Special thanks to Lynne Bartlett, Janet Fitch, Muriel Wilson, Sue Hyams and Tricia Taylor.
