History+Industry was founded in 2011 by artist Irene Wood with the desire to create jewelry with transformative qualities. Inspired by old stories, memories and experiences, the textural mixed-material statement pieces are sculptural translations of historical elements that are re-imagined with each unique wearer. Most metals, wood, semiprecious stones and vintage materials are sourced locally in Manhattan and each piece is hand crafted by Irene in her Brooklyn studio.
