Margaux Lange: Unique Jewelry Artist
By July 23, 2009

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.

Well, I’m sold, and best of all, the acrylic rings only run $12! Now, what color should I choose?

The image pictured above is from Graafland’s series Reykjavik Roofs, shot in Iceland in 2004. These photographs depict nude figures laid over A-frame Icelandic farmhouse roofs, speaking to the desolated isolation of the Icelandic landscape. With photo projects shot in the Netherlands, Jerusalem, New York, China, Bolivia, and Florida, Graafland offers captivating photographic commentaries that juxtapose the landscapes she chose to set them in. Graafland shot 2 particularly striking series in Bolivia: “Salt” and “Soft Horizon”, seen directly below. From “Salt”:
