wow huh?

What are your intitial thoughts on this jewellery collection? I like it! The pieces are nice and subtle and its jewellery you can wear and people would look...and look again...just to check they are seeing what they have just seen!

This is done by the artist Margaux Lange - http://www.margauxlange.com/



I like how she has taken an iconic toy and image and taken it apart to repurpose into desirable, wearable art!



her artist statement from her website is as follows...

Barbie dolls were extremely significant in fueling my creative life as a child. They were controlled and manipulated to fit infinite situations of my choosing. I immersed myself in on-going narratives where my fears, embarrassments, joys and explorations of human interactions could play out like characters on a stage. An invaluable tool for the expansion of my imagination as a child, ironically, Barbie continues to be such for me as an adult.
Whether you love her or hate her, there are few who feel neutral about the plastic princess. I’m fascinated with who she is as a pop culture icon, her distinguished celebrity status, and the enormous impact she has had on our society.
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 transforming something mass-produced into unique, handmade, wearable pieces of art.
– Margaux Lange

Love it or hate it, her pieces stand out and are unforgettable!

What do you think?

Would you wear these pieces?

I know I would!
