THE PHOENIX COLLECTION

I created this collection in celebration of May AAPI Heritage month. Growing up, I struggled with being bi-cultural. It took me many years to see the beauty in diversity instead of the pain and to be proud of my heritage as well as my citizenship.⁠

I love that now I get to chose the best of both cultures to identify with and practice!⁠ It's such a treat to be able to weave elements of my heritage into my art and creations.

 

Inspired by my Phoenix print, this polymer clay earring is designed with a color palette that speaks of fire and flame. The phoenix, when paired with a dragon in Chinese art, symbolizes the female element. This mythical bird is not only majestic, but it conjures up in the mind emotions of resilience and renewal. ⁠⁠While I use Chinese symbolism and imagery in some of my work, my Phoenix print and polymer clay earrings are meant to celebrate all women, not just those of AAPI descent.  ⁠

Ladies, y'all are badass phoenixes and let these earrings help you never forget it!!⁠
