Barbie Gets Dismembered for Art: Margaux Lange’s Plastic Body Series

Margaux Lange- Barbie

Whilst cruising Yatzer’s Top 50 Posts for 2011, I discovered Margaux Lange, a New York born jewelery designer who clearly has a thing for dolls. Barbies, to be specific, and the results are amazing! How cool is that hand bracelet? Really original stuff.

”Margaux Lange’s Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection utilizes salvaged Barbie doll parts in combination with sterling silver and pigmented resins. The series is a result of Lange’s desire to re-purpose mass-produced materials into handmade, wearable art. It is meant to examine and celebrate her own as well as pop culture’s relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie. ”
