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.

Abacus Row is an independent brand of refined and understated handmade jewelry. Our line reflects a subtle approach to details, designed for the thoughtful consumer with a discerning eye and an effortless sense of style.

We design with the intention of creating accessories that complement - to offer jewelry that subtly and seamlessly elevates one’s thoughtfully-acquired garments. Our designs offer a distinct balance of pattern work and minimalism to leave enough space for one to make a detailed piece their own. We strive for sustainability in jewelry design by creating pieces of lasting quality and timeless appeal. We do this with minimal and high-quality material use, simple composition, and an absence of obvious ornamentation.

Each piece of jewelry is meticulously designed and crafted in-house in San Francisco, California.
