Local bead nuts (yes, they exist) consider themselves lucky. Of all the beaders in the world (we're serious, people love beading), the ones in the Valley get to enjoy the world-renowned Bead Museum with beads dating back to 100,000 BCE.
And Wednesday will make these funny folks even more ecstatic as Luigi Cattelan shows some face . . . and his beads. The man comes straight from Italy with his hand crafted Murano glass beads and will show them off along with Nicole Anderson's jewelry trunk show.
