Mallory Weston

Mallory Weston is an artist whose work involves a marriage between traditional jewelry and metalworking and textile techniques to create large-scale wearable pieces. Her work was most recently featured in the solo exhibitions KNOCK OFF at Platina Galerie in Stockholm and Of Ophidia at Sienna Patti Contemporary in Massachusetts. 

Weston is an engaged participant in the global art jewelry community, regularly participating in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally and collaborating with other makers and artistic platforms. 

In addition to her career as an educator, she maintains an active studio practice as a member of the JV Collective, a group of seven female art jewelers that's anchored in Philadelphia but national in scope. Weston has participated as an artist in residence at the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation, the Museum of Arts and Design and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the CODA (Cultuur Onder Dak Apeldoorn) Museum and Design Museum den Bosch in the Netherlands.
