    Default Sliced Barbie dolls become fashion accessory

    Now you can buy Barbie smile earings ... Photo: SOLENT

    A Barbie chest pendant

    and earings made from ... ears

    The disturbing range is made from sliced parts of the popular toy.
    Barbie's breasts have even been transformed into an eye-catching necklace and a pair of earrings features a string of Barbie ears.
    The unusual collection, created by New York designer Margaux Lange, has caught the eye of fashion-conscious gift-hunters who have been buying up items such as a pendant made from one of Barbie's eyes costing about £110.
    There are even accessories made from parts of Barbie's boyfriend Ken.
    Ms Lange, 29, said her extraordinary handmade items were inspired by a childhood love of Barbie, the 'plastic princess'.
    She said: "Barbie dolls were extremely significant in fuelling my creative life as a child. They were an invaluable tool for the expansion of my imagination then and, ironically, Barbie continues to be such for me as an adult. "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."
    The jewellery echoes the dismembered dolls left by a killer in the television drama Dexter.
    A dismembered doll is left as a clue by a serial killer in the popular American drama serial Dexter.
    The jewellery can be ordered from Ms Lange's website or through her UK stockist Hannah Zakari
    Barbie was launched in 1959 by American toy company Mattel. The American businesswoman Ruth Handler is regarded as the creator of the doll.
    It is believed three dolls are sold every second in more than 150 countries worldwide.

    I like the first two, but the ear thing creeps me out a little.

    Thanks for posting that link, I love that stuff!

    I did something like this in the early eighties with tiny kewpie dolls, wish I still had some pieces.. the quality wasn't anything near these Barbie pieces, but still "creepy cool"

    I like when someone takes a toy and alters it for another purpose. This is cool.
