The Art of Darkness

Ear Ring

November 29th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Ear Ring CloseupArtist Margaux Lange makes jewelry and accessories out of Barbie body parts. The result is both intriguing and creepy as hell.

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.

I like the daintiness of many of her pieces; you wouldn’t necessarily notice immediately that the jewelry contains little dismembered body parts, thus enhancing the Zoiks Factor when you looked closer.

Here’s her Website and her Etsy shop.

    ewwww… That is just too weird. I wonder if she has a braclet made out of Barbie’s bendable arms.

    Weird, but not as weird as the “yoni” ring I once saw.

    I’ve been reading your blog from most recent to way back when (because I love it and I can’t get enough.) These Barbie pieces are awesome. I’m a little glad that my 4 yo accidentally pulled the head off of one today so I can try this. Besides, Halloween is only 81 days away… {:
