Balancing a studio practice with her position as senior jewelry designer at FGX International, Tzu-Ju Chen creates work that incorporates artistic traditions from around the world. At FGX she designs products for labels such as No Boundary and Style & Co. and works closely with art directors, clients and overseas vendors. Chen draws inspiration from various cultures encountered during her travels — including her year in Rome as part of RISD's European Honors Program. A subsequent Fulbright Fellowship in China further fueled her research into working with unorthodox materials.
