Margaux Lange Fuses Cute And Creepy To Create One-Of-A-Kind Jewelry.

Bright spring colors, nearly floral patterns, and… cut out portions of Barbie dolls… converge in Brooklyn artist Margaux Lange‘s line of bizarre art jewelry. Dismembered arms of Barbie dolls form sun-like bursts, Barbie breasts are framed with silver hearts, and Barbie mouths are paired with colors that would be great for mod fashion. The strangely delicate but obviously bizarre pieces are absolutely perfect for the slightly eccentric jewelry-wearer.

Lange speaks about the pieces in her own words on her Etsy page:

Barbie™ was immensely important in fueling my creative life as a child, and ironically continues to be such for me as an adult. My Plastic Body Series jewelry collection is the result of my life-long fascination with the icon, and a desire to re-purpose mass produced materials into distinctly handmade, wearable artworks.”
