Barbie jewelry by Margaux Lange


Margaux Lange makes jewelry out of Barbie doll parts and sells them on Etsy.

This happy little ring is made of sterling silver with hand hammered detailing and a pink lipstick Barbie doll smile. Features an oxidized finish and hand hammered ring shank. Top part of ring measures approximately 1/2" x 5/8" Artist signature on back.

A fun little reminder, right there on your hand to SMILE and take life a little less seriously!


  1. Okay, that highly disturbing. Like, I would have to cover it up to sleep in the same room with it creepy.

  2. Call me a feminist. Call me a party pooper.

    But is it just me or does separating women’s bodies into parts only perpetuate the objectification of women?

    I’ll admit it is creative and quite a sight to be seen. BUT it is only adding to society that is voyueristic and commodifes women.

    I’d really like to know what the creator of this line of jewelry is/was thinking.

    1. But is it just me or does separating women’s bodies into parts only perpetuate the objectification of women?

      Isn’t that the point? That Barbie consists solely of hair, eyes, lips, breasts and legs. None of the inconvenient parts like organs or a personality or free will.

  3. The serrated edges on that ring look sharp enough to do some serious damage to whatever you brush by. I wonder if the TSA would let you fly with it.

  4. If you had one of those rings, and the mouth talked, you’d pretty much be obligated to stick your head in a wood chipper.

  5. I think wildeandcrazy has a point, and I’ve seen/read about this artist before. It’s not really that original since women’s dismembered (not violently, but for advertisexment) body parts are everywhere.

    I read the artist’s statement, and I get it, but that doesn’t mean I like it.

  6. #7 I will admit I might have been a little too hasty. I have in fact looked at her site, read her bio and such, but still am not thrilled by the art.

    I don’t care if she is a feminist. It makes no difference to me. What I care about is perpetuating gender roles, stereotypes and the effect that has on people.

    #8 I don’t know what they are suppose to do. A little of each gender wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, but I don’t know how to make it work. Yet, I still am uncomfortable with the use of Barbie doll’s body parts.
