Colorful beads originating from the Fertile Crescent and thousands of years old hang at 1/4" intervals in between tiny studs on a black oxidized silver chain. The choker measures 15" in total length and fastens with a hook-and-eye 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.
