Margaux Lange

Unconventional , bizzare but nonetheless artistic , jeweller Margaux Lange uses Barbie parts for her eclectic, wearable creations.

“My childhood spent with Barbie cultivated my interest in adornment. Extensive play with the doll and her miniature world strengthened my dexterity. This is a skill imperative to the art of jewelry making. Hence it feels natural for me to make art on a small scale.
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 and revealed as a unique, handmade, wearable piece of art.” – Margaux Lange.

Is it just me but does that seem a bit morbid? I don't think I could wear any of it although I'm sure it's artistic.

Do you mean all the vintage barbies I've saved for 20 years from my older daughter could be making me some real money?
