Jan Huling is a New York based "beadist". She calls herself that because she is an artist who works with beads! What she does is to take objects like toys or something drab and ordinary from a flea market or even eBay and transforms them into works of art.

Jan's very first piece was a beaded kazoo! Since then, her collection has grown. Now her varied and eclectic work has been exhibited in many museums. The New York Times dubbed Jan's work “oddball assemblages” much to her delight.
