Designer: Abacus Row
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. We created two palettes: the first, a palette to capture the wonder of the outdoors, a sense of gratitude and fullness. The second palette is packed with competing bold and uplifting colors, the fruition of our creative energy, optimism and imagination. Giving a nod to nature and the temporality and anticipation of growth, we respectively named these palettes – perennial and annual.
Within each of these palettes, the collection offers three different design concepts:
Habitual – a thoughtful and carefully meditated balance
Progressions – a decisive comparison of bold and subtle differences
Letting Go – a joyful embrace in releasing control.
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
Size – 1.7" diameter
Materials – 14k gold-filled hoop, Japanese Miyuki matte glass beads
