In 2011, Brooklyn-based painter Irene Wood launched History+Industry, a jewelry line born from her desire to translate ancient artifact to powerful contemporary adornment. The pieces are infused with elements of royal costuming but function as protective armor for the day to day. Hand-built by Irene in Brooklyn, NY from materials ranging from metals, semi-precious stones and painted wood, each talisman provides an opportunity for its participant to imagine and foster their own personal mythology.
The Party Collection is inspired by epic social gatherings throughout history. The chosen parties range in time period, culture, intention, but they share the desire to let go and escape into an elevated intoxicated rapturous fantasy.
