The Journal of Jewellery Research

The Journal of Jewellery Research

The journal is a peer-reviewed online and open-access publication that focuses on the design, theory and praxis of jewellery studies. It promotes jewellery research into materials, techniques, technologies, methodologies, processes, concepts and aesthetics. 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 timeframes 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.

Editorial Board:

Roberta Bernabei, Jayne Wallace and Sandra Wilson.

Advisory Board:

Liesbeth den Besten, Stephen Bottomley, Monica Gaspar, Sian Hindle, Jenny Hutton, Ben Lignel, Lin Cheung, Kevin Murray, Laura Potter, Josephine Winther, André Gali and Ellen Maurer Zilioli.
