Margaux Lange



The juxtaposition of skin tones, eyecolour and body parts make for potent socio political statements whilst looking great as a wearable piece of jewellery. They are beautifully executed technically and design wise – they get a high ranking from me. In fact I’d love to own a piece one day.

Whether you love her or hate her, there are few who feel neutral about
the plastic princess. I am fascinated with who she is as a cultural
icon, her distinguished celebrity status, and the enormous impact she
has had on our society. Specifically, I’m intrigued with her influence
in defining gender roles of women in contemporary American culture.

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 something mass-produced
being transformed and revealed as a unique, handmade, wearable piece of
art.

    Yes, I obviously love it too. Check out her website – It’s very good. Margaux is prolific and has a substantial portfolio of work investigating her subject.
