New York-based designer Ada Chen makes a woke and stylish statement on stereotypes with a collection of text message earrings laying out some of the exchanges one is subject to as a person with an Asian background in America.
Each of two earrings contains a different, awkward, text message convo. One starts out with a text that reads: “Are you Asian or Chinese?” The second one kicks off with the well-worn message, “I’ve never been with an Asian girl before.”
Born and raised in San Francisco, Chen attended Pratt Institute where her focus was jewelry.
Her acrylic and silver text message earrings are priced at $160 for a set and are available to purchase at her store (along with other cute items) at potadenchen.com.
