This quiet classic from Ten Thousand Things is a collection of multi-colored beads that were once used for trading in Asia. They are studded at 1/4" intervals on a sterling silver foxtail chain. The bracelet measures 6 1/2" in length and fastens with a smooth, hand-finished toggle closure.

NEW YORK - Ten Thousand Things is a line from ancient Chinese philosophy meaning, "from one thing begets the ten thousand things". David Rees and Ron Anderson have used this principle of infinite creativity and constant evolution to drive their inspiration for over two decades. Always pushing the envelope of what is possible, the overall look is fluid, rich with organically inspired shapes, teensy beads pinned to chains and a striking, minimalist aesthetic.
