Barbie Strikes Again

See the link below for info on the artist who made this great brooch

No, "bricolage" is not a synonym for Barbie dismemberment, but the link that Karen Frazer posted on Facebook was just too good to pass up. Take a look at this . This jewelry is very well done because you wouldn't recognize it as Barbie parts right away. But once you see it for what it is, there's a whole other level of meaning.

The whole trick is making it your own. Yes, that's right: take it away from Barbie (and/or Ken) and make it yours.

You can tell that Barbie was popular before the era of Botoxed lips

Thanks for thinking of me, Karen!

Barbie Mania

I just came across this post from Hyperallergic that shows what could be done if one had the commitment to Barbie that some believe she deserves. Why Barbie? you may ask. Well, if you had opened your own mystery box, you might know the answer to that question. And some who did wanted to reinvent Barbie in new ways, one might even say deconstruct, but no names, please.
