Ten Thousand Things

The name Ten Thousand Things 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.    This duo is the reason I make and sell jewelry!  I fell in love with their work when I saw them introduced in a Vogue artifcle in the very early 90's and have been following and loving their work ever since.  It was a slightly star struck moment for me when I met them and began to buy their beautiful and unique work for Gem.  Their signature 18k beaded 20" chain never leaves my neck..
