From the quiet and enigmatic collection of Ten Thousand Things comes their classic Ancient Bead Necklace using beads that were once used for trading in Asia. The muted, multi-colored beads are studded at 1/4" intervals along a pale silver foxtail chain. It measures 16" 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.
