ARCN - Abacus Row x Christy Natsumi Holiday Edition


In the spring of 2015, I approached Christine of Abacus Row Jewelry.  I thought it would be fun to work on one necklace as a collaboration between our jewelry lines.  

What I did not foresee was the powerhouse that is Christine.  She is fearless and one of those amazing lady bosses that can take on challenges with both boldness and finesse.  Mixing our creative energies resulted in a full fledged collection we were both proud of and a sold-out production run of over 100 pieces, which included thousands of hand-hammered fringe components.  We cared for every detail, shot a gorgeous a look book, and even threw a super fun launch party.  And the best part?  We are even better friends after all of it.   

This year, we primarily focused on working full-time in each of our businesses.  However, with the approaching holidays and a pop-up curated by Christine scheduled for December, we decided to bring back ARCN.  This time we focused on variations of gold and silver tones.  Still hand-hammered fringe and individually-assembled pieces but in very limited quantities.
