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. She grew up in Olympia, Washington, where her parents and many other Vietnamese refugees settled in the early 1980s. 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 by their small team of two in San Francisco.
