Creepy Cannibal-Chic Jewelry Made From Pieces Of Dismembered Barbies

Ever wished you could be as perfectly beautiful as Barbie? Well, you can get plastic surgery to match her weirdly perfect proportions.

Or, if you're not into that kind of thing, you can always wear one of these creepy pieces of body part jewelry by Brooklyn artist Margaux Lange. Barbie's perfect body is now part of your look.

Lange's work takes on a cannibalistic vibe with lonely limbs sprouting from sterling silver mounts. The odd series features repurposed body parts as brooches, earrings, necklaces, and the like, all furnished with Barbie's body.

So what's behind Lange's work? What motivates an artist to begin dismembering dolls and making accessories from their limbs?

According to Lange, it started with a Barbie-obsessed childhood. Then later, as an adult, he began to look a little closer at society's relationship to the iconic toy.

"It is meant to examine and celebrate her own (as well as pop culture’s) relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie," he says.

Find Lange's original pieces for sale in his macabre online accessory shop.
