Contemporary jewellery – step-sister of fine arts and?

My research concerns what contemporary jewellery is. The concept contemporary jewellery indicates to that kind of jewellery which is not design and it’s idea are based more to artistic work than traditional jewelmaking. What is the relationship between contemporary jewellery and contemporary art? Have contemporary jewellery reached the same position as photography has? How contemporary jewellery is situated in the field of art? What is the attitude towards it as a part of artworld? I’m interested in all questions like these.
