Ten Thousand Things antique jewelry

The name TEN THOUSAND THINGS (TTT) 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, who have been at the helm since it’s inception for over 20 years.

Each TTT 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 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.

Pantone Color of the year – Marsala

Meet Marsala. A reddish-brown that’s rich and earthy — and a complete departure from the brightness of past years’ picks. It’s not quite the burgundy of the 90s, or 1970s brown, but an updated neutral that will translate well to interiors and decor.

Here’s what Pantone has to say about the color:pantone

Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.
