Intro
Thirty two makers have created pieces especially for this touring exhibition on the theme of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The result is a wide variety of individual interpretations in precious and non-precious materials.
The Association for Contemporary Jewellery is proud to be presenting a touring exhibition of jewellery specially designed and made on the theme of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Thirty two makers have created pieces especially for the event, resulting in a wide variety of individual interpretations in precious and non-precious materials.  All the participating designers have embraced the theme of Jubilee celebration with style, irreverence, humour and panache. Crushed gemstones, sweets and jellies, ribbon, graphite powder, flocked and sublimated materials, rub shoulders with diamonds, silver and 18ct gold, in a glorious celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s sixty years reign. All the pieces were selected by a distinguished judging panel chaired by Professor Jack Cunningham, which included Corinne Julius, Jacqueline Gestetner, Joanna Hardy, Kath Libbert and Karen Dell’Armi.

Leading jewellery designers taking part include Stephen Bottomley, Kelvin J Birk, Maria Hanson, and Zoe Robertson.
The exhibition opens at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, and then starts its tri-nation tour to Llantrisant, South Wales before showing at the newly opened Goldsmiths’ Centre, London – the first exhibition to be held there after its’ own opening Royal exhibition. This is a testament to the Association’s high profile, and to the Centre’s commitment to showing work in non-traditional as well as traditional materials, and used in non-traditional ways.
