A special edition episode recorded during the conference ‘Beyond Silver’ of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. A discussion on the theme of the conference, the impact of conferences, the state of play in the field, the major challenges and opportunities and where we go from here, featuring collector Linda Lambert, educator and jeweller Bridie Landon and Chair of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery Terry Hunt.
Terry Hunt is the Association for Contemporary Jewellery Chair. He is a designer-maker, and his practice has predominantly been concerned with exploration of surface pattern and colour using titanium and anodised aluminium. Most recently, this has grown to include larger sculptures in coloured plastics.
Bridie Lander is an experienced jewellery designer/maker and lecturer. Her personal research interests include issues of the handmade and the digital, intersections of art and design. She considers art jewellery as a medium, an interface of the virtual (interiority, the imaginary) and the real.
Linda Lambert is director of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. Until she retired, Linda Lambert was the Publisher for the Visual Arts at A&C Black Publishers (now part of Bloomsbury). During her time there, she established a number of Crafts lists, but notably the Jewellery list which included the Jewellery Handbooks series that continues today. Linda joined the ACJ when she first started looking into the field of jewellery.
