Ada Chen is an artist, designer, and jeweler born in San Francisco, California who makes text message earrings inspired by Asian stereotypes. According to the New York City-based Chinese-American girl, she tries to find the place in the world.
“Ada Chen’s jewelry is more than just wearable art: each piece also carries with it a statement, combatting (and disproving) the Asian American stereotypes she encounters,” according to Design Your Trust. “From satirizing the fetishization of Asian women to creating 3D earring copies of unfortunate text messages she’s received, Chen’s work is equal parts funny and powerful.”
Chen shares her work on her personal website and Instagram profile where she has gathered over 15.6 thousand followers.
