Hand-hammered and meticulously beaded, this necklace was crafted in Abacus Row's studio in San Francisco, CA. The leading blue beads are balanced by an equally vivid red, while these bold hues were matched with an earthy ochre, a gentle nod to the third primary color. The combination creates a fullness that is impactful without being overwhelming. Blush and gold details were worked into specific collection designs to extend the palette for an unexpectedly refined and subtly playful result.
Abacus Row was founded in 2012 by Christine Trac. Christine’s work and appreciation for jewelry are shaped by a multicultural upbringing and an interdisciplinary background in ethnography and environmental conservation. She views jewelry as objects of culture and identity and approaches her work as a way of expressing subtle yet distinct narratives. Abacus Row is an on-going exploration of material and community intersections.
