Mallory Weston

Mallory Weston’s work involves a marriage between traditional jewelry techniques and textile techniques and she creates large-scale wearable pieces that allow metal to move with the fluidity of fabric.

Mallory currently works as an Assistant Professor of Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and Architecture in Philadelphia.

Conceptual Statement: In response to their Fall 2020 curatorial project In-School Suspension, members of JV Collective dredged up their own feelings of nostalgia and angst for a time in life that is often messy and transformative: High School. Each member reflected on those formative years and the items that once adorned their bodies. This series of work, Homeroom, is a snapshot of adolescence and will make its virtual debut during Munich Jewellery Week 2021. Hemp necklaces were the gateway drug to my life in jewelry.
