Jennifer Weston

BA(Hons) MSc Teaching Cert

I am drawn to creating both beautiful objects and radical disruption.

I create jewellery from gemstones and found objects; wearable aesthetic heirlooms.

However, much of my current exhibition work explores much darker political comment about gender-based violence and misogyny.  I create as my awareness evolves within my experiences of seeing, hearing and feelings about living within toxic patriarchal culture.
