"I find inspiration in nature, music and works of art, and I love combining textures and colors to evoke a general sense of place, as opposed to one particular object. The idea of creating a piece of art that can be touched, and can reflect a mood or a moment, feeds my creative energies; working with clients to create art that speaks uniquely to them, feeds my spirit." — Iris Sonnenschein, fabric

"Barbara Trainer, a co-owner of Beadcraft Etc., is a jewelry designer, whose inspirations come from many sources--organic, natural or light catching materials, eclectic shapes, combinations and colors. Her jewelry designs are created with quirky & unusual components in sterling, copper, gold-filled & silver-plated metals, hand-blown glass, imported stones and beads. The elements are combined in many different ways so each piece is fresh, unique & striking. The styles run from vintage to retro, classic to contemporary. Educated at the Landscape Institute, her profession as a Certified Massachusetts Landscape Designer creating gardens, which vary in texture, light, color & shape, led her five years ago to exploring jewelry design. As a member of the Dedham Square Artists Guild and a participant in regional Massachusetts arts venues, she has become an active member of the artists communities around the Massachusetts area." — Barbara Trainer, jewelry
