New York born jewelry designer Margaux Lange deconstructs Barbie dolls into their component parts and turns them into elaborate bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.
The most interesting part is that Margaux Lange uses only second hand dolls and accessories from donations, garage sales, thrift stores and of course eBay. It is important to her conceptually that the Barbies are already used and played with in the hands of a child. Thousands of Barbies in her studio integrate the dreams and secrets of the children who donated their dolls. It this way, each one of her designs, is part of a child’s story and life. It’s an inseparable part of their tender youth!
