CHICAGO - Wade Jensen and Moire Conroy met as classmates in 2003 at The School of the Art Institute, Chicago. They established Jensen-Conroy in spring of 2009. Both come from a textile and fine arts background, and decided to start creating together with new ideas based around knit jewelry.
The two create transitional accessories that include objects, colors, and compositions that have significance to each of them personally, using a combination of found materials, whether it is flea market finds in Paris or stones on a beach, as well as collaborating with other artists. As a result, the line is ethereal and timeless, provoking a juxtaposition of nostalgia and newness.
Jensen-Conroy jewelry has been featured in the NT Times T Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Vogue Deutsch, Vogue Japan, Style.com, Interview Magazine, Lucky, Nylon, D MAG (Argentina), not to mention worn on TV's Gossip Girl. The duo recently customized an Armani Suit with Swarovski crystals for Lady Gaga's appearance on NBC's The Today Show.
Moire Conroy, whose work has been worn around NY and Miami on gallerists and artists, as well as musicians performing on SNL, Jay Leno, and by the fashion director of the Academy Awards, is re-launching her clothing line, limited to one-of-a-kind and custom pieces made from recycled and vintage fabrics.
This coming season Jensen-Conroy will be available in 20 stores internationally, including Tomorrowland, Japan; Colette, Paris; NO.6, NY; and Mohawk General Store, LA, just to name a few.
