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. Christine views jewelry as objects of culture and identity and approaches her work with Abacus Row as a way of expressing subtle yet distinct narratives. She is inspired by both the natural ways in which things come together and the innovative approaches used to produce unexpected connections. Abacus Row is an on-going exploration of material and community intersections. Each piece of jewelry is meticulously designed and crafted in-house in San Francisco, California.
