New York – The name TENTHOUSANDTHINGS is taken from a line of ancient Chinese philosophy: “from one thing begets the ten thousand things.” This principle of infinite creativity and constant evolution guides designers David Rees and Ron Anderson.
Each TTT piece has the integrity of antique jewelry but is distinctly modern: both organic and refined. “Our big motivation has always been to create jewelry that could be considered an heirloom piece, like something valued by your mother or grandmother and passed down through generations,” says David. “Substantial and classic but original.” Materials include rare American pearls from the Mississippi River, unusual sapphire cabochons in beautiful colors, black opals and diamonds, both brilliant white and unusual colors. A signature technique is delicate gold or silver beading on chain as necklaces and earrings. TTT’s latest innovations have come from exploring abstract shapes inspired by nature and making compositions of these shapes into strikingly original earrings and pendants and bracelets.
