Look fantastic in plastic with unique jewelry designed by Margaux Lange. Her fun collection includes necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings and earrings–all made with Barbie parts. Arms, legs, breasts, facial features, and interesting oddities, such as this re-construction of Ken’s parts, are all thoughtfully designed to be worn around your own bits.
“I enjoy the funny juxtaposition of wearing the body, on the body. Barbie has become the accessory instead of being accessorized. I take pleasure in the contrast and contradiction of something mass-produced being transformed into a handmade, wearable piece of art,” Lange writes of her art.
