Helena Symes1During the lockdown, ACJ kept members updated with industry news, and set weekly challenges to make jewellery, with an amazing array of responses.

 

See the collection of articles here

In the wake of the most recent instances of racist attacks and police brutality both in the US and here in the UK and the resultant global civil rights movement, the jewellery industry is examining diversity and the systemic challenges facing jewellers of BAME backgrounds and black jewellers in particular.

The Board is discussing ways the ACJ can help to drive change in this respect and the ways in which we can be more proactive in our approach. As we are a membership organization first and foremost, in addition to our discussions with other industry professionals and organizations, we are turning to you our members to seek guidance and support in our work.

Marianthi MacDonaldWe are pleased to announce the first three winners of the ACJ College Prize scheme for 2020. Details of winners from other colleges to follow.

Congratulations!
