The Best of Barbie Jewelry and Mixed Media

Filed under stuff i like

I was reading an article in New York magazine this morning about the biggest scandals in New York history and a particular crime called “The Preppie Murder”. In 1986, they said, “handsome, blue-eyed, and six-foot-four” Robert Chambers strangled a woman in Central Park and while out on bail, “had the bad judgment” to be videotaped “twisting the head of a Barbie doll and saying, in a falsetto voice, ‘Oops! I think I killed it,’ while looking into the camera with leering, satanic delight.”

Awesome, right?! Well, I couldn’t find the video online, but I did find this super-awesome, super-creepy Barbie art by Etsy seller G. Jarvis Jewelry, etc..

Here are some of my favourite pieces from the shop:

1) Ken and Ken Knuckle Ring
2) Barbie and Ken Embrace
3) Leg Man
4) Barbie Face Necklace
5) You Can Have It All (I noticed that this link is no longer working, so I instead offer you these babies in a bottlecap.)
6) Barbie Arm Earrings

I feel like it’s pretty ridiculous that I don’t already own that Ken-on-Ken ring, right?

So. Weird. -Ly awesome!


  1. I could stare at #2 all day long. Fantastic!

    This stuff is the good kind of creepy. Definitely.

  2. Jessica R. says:

    Um, Dexter anyone? That’s just plain creepy.

  3. Cassie says:

    Um, creepy much?

    #2 totally works if you pretend you’re looking into the top of an oil drum you found at some abandoned factory.

  5. Christy says:

    Can’t picture myself wearing any of these (not a Barbie fan) but those lampshade/arm earrings are pretty unique. Okay, all of it is pretty unique. Thank goodness.

  6. Megan says:

    That Barbie art is seriously captivating me. I am not sure whether I should laugh or take out my credit card. The Ken and Ken knuckle ring pretty much needs to be mine.

  7. Lisa says:

    Add another vote for creepy. But I guess I used to pull the heads off of my Barbie dolls growing up, so who am I to judge?

  8. It’s nine o’clock.
    Do you know where your Barbies are?!
