"The Seasons Collection is a continued exploration of color, initially inspired by the paintings of Etel Adnan and further propelled by our look into the works of Hilma af Klint and our enduring love for Marc Chagall’s The Four Seasons mosaic.
We began designing this collection first with attention to color. Giving a nod to nature and the temporality and anticipation of growth, we created two palettes: Perennial, a palette to capture the wonder of the outdoors, a sense of gratitude and fullness; Annual, packed with competing bold and uplifting colors, the fruition of our creative energy, optimism and imagination.
Altogether, Seasons is a layering of sentiments and perspectives marked by this unusual time of varied yet shared experiences.
Perennial – a predominantly green and blue palette composed of 10 different colors, grounded and all-encompassing
Annual – a palette of largely purples and red, bold and uplifting" - Abacus Row
Length – 20"
Materials – Japanese Miyuki matte glass beads, coated stainless steel beading wire, 14k gold-filled findings
