Thanks to all the champions who believe in the importance of art and critical thinking.
With their help, AJF raised $10,000 to support our mission of continuing to broaden critical discourse, writing, and education in the field.
Thanks to all who donated for making a difference for art jewelry’s future.
Have you ever thought of Art Jewelry Forum as a giant seminar? Jeweler and educator Lori Talcott does. She views AJF as a place where jewelers, thinkers, art historians, and academics can come together to build the knowledge of our field.
AJF echoes Lori Talcott’s belief that building knowledge is important to building the field. From the curious to the curators, AJF provides an essential platform for thinking about jewelry. Your donation keeps AJF’s website open for anyone seeking knowledge specific to jewelry.
“Small objects with a lot of power” is how Swedish gallerist Sofia Björkman describes contemporary jewelry. These small, intimate objects that we so love connect people and so does AJF. That’s why Sofia supports AJF: It works across borders to connect people from all over the world through a mutual appreciation of jewelry.
At AJF we are proud to be part of such a strong community, united under a singular appreciation of contemporary jewelry. We too believe that jewelry is “small objects with a lot of power” and we work to elevate and celebrate the uniqueness of this intimate field. As we reach for our goal, we hope you will help us keep jewelry visible by making a contribution to AJF.
Do you remember the days before Art Jewelry Forum? Seattle-based artist Jana Brevick does. She believes that AJF brings together people who are invested in contemporary jewelry–and that is an incredible thing.
We’d love you to be a part of the fantastic community that makes AJF a reality. On this global day of giving (#GivingTuesday), we hope you’ll make a contribution and help AJF continue to bring people together through jewelry.
As a member of the contemporary jewelry community, you value intelligent discussion about the field. Art historian Toni Greenbaum does too. She believes contemporary jewelry needs a platform for critical writing and discourse, which is why she supports Art Jewelry Forum. AJF is a place that both celebrates art jewelry’s history and pushes the critical discourse forward.
Do you value contemporary jewelry as an art form? AJF founder and board chair Susan Cummins does, which is why she started AJF, the world’s leading source for critical thinking and discussion about the field, nearly 20 years ago.
You can be a part of our international community of people passionate about art jewelry who believe thinking and writing about jewelry is as important as wearing it. You can help Susan bring value to the art jewelry field by making a tax-deductible contribution. With your invaluable support, AJF will continue to be a place to appreciate beautiful jewelry that makes us think, for the next 20 years and well beyond.
