Tracy Trainor Sculpts Motion & Life Into Wearable Jewelry Art
By Brenna Pakes
Tracy Trainor became a jewelry designer and maker as she meandered across the globe, and uses inspirations from her formative years in Japan, to the countryside of Ireland, where she currently resides. What captures my attention with Tracy’s jewelry is the movement she coerces from wax carving, to casting, down to the texture. When challenged to make a butterfly ring unique to her own aesthetic and creativity, she crafted a 3-dimensional butterfly that appears to be taking flight from one’s finger, complete with subtle veining in wings, to slight wind adjustments. I’m delighted to share Tracy’s story today on Jewelry Navigator Podcast, and also, that she’ll be featured in Milan Jewelry week in the prestigious Artistar Jewels Show October 24-27. You can find Tracy’s jewelry on her website, tracytrainorjewellery.com as well as on Facebook, and Instagram. I wish Tracy a wonderful time and best of luck in Milan!
