ACJ Conference

Earlier this month I travelled to Sheffield for the Association for Contemporary Jewellery conference. I've been to a few library conferences but never one in the jewellery field so I was really looking forward to seeing what it was like. I had no idea who was going but was relieved to see lots of familiar faces on the first day. There were speakers from around the world talking about their practices, collaborations and the wider jewellery field. Politics, social responsibility, China, and weaponry were key themes - it was very heavy in some places! It was also heavily biased towards art jewellery which was interesting to listen to despite feeling quite removed from my own practice. Here are some images from the weekend:
