Guest artist JavaFlame will provide free demos on how to make glass beads this Saturday and Sunday at Tokay Beaded Art, 1407 W. Second St.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The demos are scheduled for noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Tokay Beaded Art is the only art gallery in the country that is dedicated to exhibiting only beaded art.
JavaFlame, whose real name is Nicole Seaton, has shown galleries throughout Nevada and California.
While she never took an art class in college, her artistic career began at the tender age of 7, when she discovered the bead store. Her astute grandmother realized that the inquisitive child was content for hours with a few beads and a ball of twine. After two decades of jewelry making, Seaton decided to learn how to make her own beads, according to her biography on her Facebook page.
