We will hold a jewelry custom order event by TENTHOUSANDTHINGS at & SHOP in Tokyo and Kyoto. This is a unique project in which designers Ron and David have traveled to India to work on a collection of original stones with the local craftsmen. At this event, we welcome you to choose your favorite stone with chains or leather straps to make your own one-of-a-kind combination. We will also introduce their new original 2020 collection.

Original stones made in India
The two designers Ron Anderson and David Rees had always a strong connection with natural stones. Even when their concept of making jewelry was first born, it was their fascination of ancient stone beads that drove their passion. From the desire to make their original jewelry by applying a shaped cut to an unprocessed natural stone, they traveled to Jaipur, India. The process takes several months; to make the mold, bring it to a local workshop, and have the stones hand-cut to fit the mold by professional technicians. In these moments, they would sit down next to a skilled stone cutter for long periods of time to have the shapes formed exactly how they imagined. The stone is then polished through several steps. During this process, new ideas will come up, and some were born by developing changes in the molds on the spot.

“By actually going to the locations of the natural stones, we learned the real thrill of being able to developing these stones in the best ways - true to their characteristics,” said the two designers. Please take this opportunity to customize your favorite jewelry with each one-of-a-kind stone.

Perseverance has been a big word for us this year, to keep going along our path, making things and trying to put more beautiful, special things out into the world. Looking back over the year i think a pause in our routines- even though enforced by the pandemic- has been a good thing, allowing us to proceed more carefully and thoughtfully. Always look for the silver lining.” — Ron Anderson, David Rees
