Ten Thousand Things Bio

Designer Ten Thousand Things

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.

Ron Anderson started making jewelry as a teenager in Detroit. He moved to New York City to work in high fashion retail and began selling his work on the street in Soho. In 1991, he met David Rees, who had moved to New York from Ohio after getting a degree in art history and was working for fashion innovator Linda Dresner.

Each Ten Thousand Things piece has the integrity of antique jewelry but is distinctly modern: both organic and refined. Materials include rare American pearls from the Mississippi River, unusual colored sapphire cabochons, black opals and diamonds, both brilliant white and unusual colors.

“We love our customers,” says David. “They pay attention to detail, don’t miss a thing, see all that we put into the work and truly, that is what keeps us going, I swear.”
