Company Overview

Abacus Row

Abacus Row Website
Abacus Row is a design studio exploring material and community intersections. We are curious about how objects and ideas artfully flow together, and the creative approaches to producing new ways of seeing familiar concepts. Our line of jewelry, founded in 2012, reflects a sophisticated approach to beadwork that is both thoughtful and unexpected. We take great pride in each design being developed and meticulously crafted in-house by our SF-based team.

The Abacus Row storefront serves as a space to celebrate design, craftsmanship and community. Our shop aims to showcase our work as well as the work of fellow creatives—independent designers, artists and small business owners. It is an ever-evolving project that holds space for us to experiment with various creative synergies, and to build communities within and across disciplines and identities.

Abacus Row, LLC is committed to Equal Employment Opportunity. We consider all candidates for employment based on their individual capabilities and qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship status, military status, age, disability, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected under federal, state or local law.
