Sculptures covered in thousands of beads
Jan Huling has taken her fascination with indigenous cultures, pop culture, religion, and mythologies, to create stunning and colourful artworks with beads. She’s called a Beadist, short for Bead Artist. She turns musical instruments, dolls, decorative items, and basically any ordinary object, into unique pieces with her thousands of small Czech seed beads.
The process requires a lot of patience and attention to detail. She first strings together a combination of beads, then applies the pattern to the object using glue from a syringe. Then she removes the string, and repeats the process until she comes up with another vibrant and mesmerizing design.
