JJR is affiliated with the School of Design and Creative Arts; the journal has established itself as the leading international journal that focuses on jewellery.

The journal provides an interdisciplinary arena for the discussion and analysis of jewellery spanning the conceptual, practical, pedagogical and cultural across both contemporary and historical time-frames to consider jewellery within the wealth of creative methodologies at the intersections between jewellery and other disciplines.

We aim to publish original papers that have demonstrable research and a clear contribution to existing knowledge – to this end we foster submissions from practitioners, researchers, theorists, curators, and historians.

  • Senior Editor: Dr Roberta Bernabei.
  • Co-Editor: Professor Jayne Wallace.
JJR publishes two paper types: a) conventional papers; and b) visual/textual papers and exhibition reviews. Our aim is to expand our horizons as the journal grows and in time we will include conference reports, exhibition reviews, book reviews, symposia reviews etc. The Journal currently publishes one issue per year as an online format.
