Adea Chung is a jewellery designer, mixed media artist and devoted optimist. Through Billy Would Designs, Adea creates beautiful collections that represent individual style and a passion for sustainability with West Coast influence. What started as gifts for friends and family, soon grew and gained a reputation for one of a kind pieces using strictly reclaimed hardwood. Everything from old floorboards to broken skateboard decks are recycled in her North Vancouver workshop. The name ‘Billy’ is from her daughter – a constant source of inspiration.
Growing up ‘unschooled’ in the interior of British Columbia, self expression and creativity were a way of life. As the oldest of 6 obnoxiously talented siblings and influenced by parents who’s life mission was to make art, music, and babies; Adea is self taught and always learning.
