It’s been months since we last checked in on the work of New York-based bead artist Jan Huling (previously featured here), who uses elaborate patterned beadwork to transform found objects and knickknacks into whimsical, dreamlike creatures and curiosities. Each piece requires hours of careful work to complete as Huling patiently applies one teeny-tiny bead at a time.
We can’t stop staring at the awesomely creepy Kewpie doll pictured at the top of this post. We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that it’s either going to follow us home tonight or it’ll beat us there and be waiting in a darkened hallway, staring off to the side at something only it can see.
