Stepping Up as the New Editor of Findings

I am looking forward with equal measures of trepidation and enthusiasm to becoming the next editor of Findings Magazine.  Findings is the bi-annual journal of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery and I will be responsible for ensuring that the quality of content overseen by the outgoing editor Muriel Wilson is maintained.  Findings is the ACJ magazine for members. It reviews shows, technical innovations, materials and subjects of interest to makers, collectors, galleries and museums.

Last Friday Goldsmiths Hall saw a celebration of Muriel’s contribution to Findings since it’s inception fifteen years ago. I am learning fast from her during the change over not only the amount of work needed to put the magazine together but the subtle skills required to persuade people to write features, articles and reviews.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work as editor and assistance during the handover.

This new challenge is a wonderful opportunity to widen my knowledge of the world of contemporary jewellery and get to know so many creative people.  I will be looking for ideas for content so if you have an idea for an article or feature do get in touch!
