Barbie jewelry

Fashion meets pop art in Margaux Lange's Plastic Body Series, an art jewelry collection that incorporates parts of plastic Barbie dolls in quirky but cute configurations. The line has a cheeky sense of humor -- take the "Have a Heart Bust" pendant, which features the doll's chest cut into a heart shape ($180). In honor of American Heart Month, Lange is donating part of the bust pendant proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Other pieces from the self-professed "art jeweler" include the doll's arms, legs and face fitted with sterling silver and pigmented resins.

Jewelry trunk show

Six local jewelry designers welcome spring this weekend with all-new collections. The latest work by Liebling Designs, known for delicate, retro-inspired beading and floral motifs, is decidedly bold while staying true to its ladylike aesthetic. Candied Yams combines semi-precious stones (turquoise, onyx, agate) into configurations fitting for a modern-day flower child. Those collections and four others will be priced 15 percent off during the trunk show.
