Intro
The Jewellery Art Association (Korutaideyhdistys ry ) was founded in Lappeenranta, Finland in 2005. During its 10-year career, the association has become one of the largest associations in Finland dedicated to contemporary jewellery. We are an independent association and our organization is mainly based on professional voluntary work.
The association aims to promote contemporary jewellery in Finland and improve its recognition as a form of art and design. Another goal of the association is to increase awareness about Finnish jewellery internationally. As means towards those ends, the association organizes exhibitions, presentations and discussion panels and distributes information about events. The association organized KORU5 in Imatra, Finland in 2015 and will continue organizing the triennial in the future. KORU6 takes place in 2018.

The Finnish Jewellery Art Association is an association for professional jewellery artists with a connection to Finland (living, working or native). As a member, you receive a monthly newsletter and a possibility to take part in shows that are members-only. The association organizes projects open to all jewellery makers, also internationally. The association operates mainly by voluntary work so the members have a chance to be part of the planning and organizing of various projects in Finland and abroad.

KOKOELMA - The Collection
The Finnish Jewellery Art Association started to collect Finnish contemporary jewellery in 2008. This collection is simply called Kokoelma, meaning a collection in Finnish. Kokoelma is mainly based on donations from the members of the association. The association also acquires new works to the collection annually when possible. The latest purchases were made in 2017.
The collection is also available for museums (for example) to borrow.
