Barbara Trainer began jewelry designing in 2007 as another creative outlet in her life. Her career as a certified landscape designer led to her interest in other kinds of design. With a background in needle & fabric crafts, she started working with jewelry components such as hand-blown imported glass, sterling silver, other metals and many other unusual, eclectic materials. Her pieces are meant to catch & reflect light & color in a delicate interplay. And she strives to create necklaces & earrings of unique textures & forms.
Her company, Beadcraft Etc., was founded in 2008 in her design studio at her home in West Roxbury, MA. She and her business partner, Monica Fairbairn, exhibit their jewelry at arts & crafts venues throughout the state. Please see Barbara's Facebook page for pictures and schedules of upcoming shows.
