Katherine Cole, the bead crafter, will give a presentation on the history of beads and her jewelry making on August 4 at noon at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, 15 W. Mesquite Boulevard. Cole has been creative in many different design endeavors from a very young age and discovered the wonderful world of beads as a form of artistic expression during her design career.  She currently concentrates on glass work in the form of both lampworking and fusing glass as well as beadweaving.  She also has a line of unique designs featuring Swarovski crystal.  She has taught classes in Reno and Mesquite on various methods of jewelry making from stringing and wire wrapping to beadweaving.
