A slightly eerie, yet fashionable way to hold onto one’s Barbie obsession is to take apart the doll’s limbs and then turn them into accessories as shown in the ‘Plastic Body Series’ by Margaux Lange. I know this sounds a tad barbaric, however, Lange takes the Barbie body parts and features them with sterling silver and resins to create various attractive accessories.
The Plastic Body Series aims to convey the connection that modern pop culture shares with the Barbie franchise. Margaux Lange has been requested by Barbie fanatics to jewelry collectors as her designs are intricately appealing and also symbolic of Barbie’s continued popularity in doll manufacturing.
This collection has a number of pieces, and is perfect for the more daring fashionista.
