Barbie Doll Body Parts as Jewelry: Margaux Lange's Ear Earrings and Hand Necklaces--Like Dahmer's Refrigerator, Only Pretty
Would you wear these bizarre jewelry items made by Brooklyn artist Margaux Lange? They are made of chopped up pieces of Barbie dolls. They are plasticky, strange, cheerful, and just a bit creepy in a budding serial killer kind of way. I particularly enjoy the earrings made of ears. And the little dangling feet earrings. They are Dahmer-esque, in the sweetest possible way. (Dahmer, by the way, was the one who kept parts of his victims in the refrigerator. Ironically--after he was beaten to death by a fellow prison inmate--his brain is now being kept in a jar by scientists, for future study.)
A small pin costs around $70, a simple pendant necklace around $160, and a complicated multi-arm necklace around $495. Buy them on Etsy here.
A great conversation piece, as in, "Um, are you staring at my breasts?"
No ifs, ands, or butts.
