Patty Lakinsmith has been making glass beads in her cheerful Northern California studio since 2003, and is known for her eclectic, whimsical pieces inspired by nature. In addition to her mastery of many different flameworking techniques, she is also an avid jewelry designer and fabricator. Her metal work and electroforming skills provide her with many skills to use in her pieces. In her quest for the perfect earrings, she has developed techniques for making glass headpins that ensure perfectly matched pairs and delightful, floral-esque designs that form the basis of great jewelry.
