The tribal influence does not appear to be going anywhere any time soon, yet Irene Wood has put a unique twist on it. In addition to being inspired by tribal aesthetics, her latest jewelry collection is also inspired by ancient Greco-Roman, Egyptian and African royalty. Thus, Irene Wood gives the tribal look a step up in the glitz and glamor department.
As a painter first and foremost, Irene Wood injects her jewelry pieces with an artistic flair as well. Based in Seattle, Washington, Irene Wood essentially crafts wearable art. Titled History and Industry, Irene Wood strings geometric beads that come in vibrant hues, natural wood, stone finishes, metallic and clear plastic, in both monochromatic and multi-colored combinations. Big and bold, Irene Wood's necklaces are the perfect statement pieces for this season.
