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.
White jade, trapezoid shaped chalk turquoise, cream painted wood beads, a brass crescent shaped tube, and jagged faceted gold pyrite drops create this thick statement necklace.
Very lightweight, approximately 17" at its shortest length, approx 2.5" thick.
