The inspiration behind this piece
Anna May Wong was not only a gifted actress and fashion icon of the 1920s & 1930s, but she was also a strong Chinese-American actress who fought to breakdown distasteful stereotypes against Chinese immigration.
She was born in Los Angeles to second-generation Toisonese Chinese-American parents, and while she is known as the first Chinese-American actress, she unfortunately only received a small number of leading roles in films. Her limitations were largely due to ideologies of the time where portrayals of interracial relationships on screen were not allowed. As a result, she was often limited to playing stereotypical supporting roles where she was depicted her as either a “Dragon Lady” or as a “Butterfly”.
This film was created by Weird Wonderful Women, a channel dedicated to all the weird and wonderful women throughout history.

Her passion and strength were the design inspiration for these handmade heartshaped crystal drop earrings.
