Jewelry as an object of culture and identity – An ongoing exploration of material and community intersections
Christine Trac is the Founder of Abacus Row. Christine’s work and appreciation for jewelry is shaped by a multicultural upbringing and an interdisciplinary background in ethnography and environmental conservation. Abacus Row - a way of expressing subtle yet distinct narratives.
The current collection offered by Walla Walla General Store is inspired by the early 20th century works of Hilma af Klint, Etel Adnan, and Chagall’s Four Seasons mosaic.
How to wrap: Pull the round bead along the length of the unbeaded segments of cord to extend the piece by 4 inches. Begin wrapping the bracelet around your wrist. After slipping it over your hand a fifth time, pin the tassels down in your palm and adjust the sliding bead back in with your other open hand.
