Beadcraft etc is a consortium of two jewelry designers, Monica Fairbairn and Barbara Trainer, featuring unusual pieces made of beads from Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean and Asia to create vibrant, colorful designs. Our inspiration comes from a cornucopia of materials adapted for adornment in traditional cultures all over the world, featuring old ideas transformed into modern creations. We also work with blown glass, metals, and other eclectic materials to create unique, contemporary pieces. Our work has been shown in local MA galleries, most recently Dedham Square Artist Guild, The Shop at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, as well as Open Studios in Jamaica Plain, Watertown, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Cambridge, Dedham, and Charlestown. 945784_484125418325059_595710065_n.jpg
