STONE OF THE MONTH / NOVEMBER
Colors: Yellow to yellowish brown or smoky gray brown.
Citrine is a powerful cleanser and regenerator. Carrying out the power of the sun, this is an exceedingly beneficial stone. It is warming, energizing, and highly creative. It absorbs, transmutes, dissipates, and grounds negative energy and is therefore extremely protective for the environment.
Psychologically, Citrine raises self-esteem and self-confidence, and removes destructive tendencies. It enhances individuality, improves motivation, activates creativity and encourages self-expression.
Mentally, Citrine enhances concentration and revitalizes the mind. It is excellent for overcoming depression, fears, and phobias. Citrine promotes inner calm so that wisdom can emerge. It helps in digesting information, analyzing situations and steering them in a positive direction.
Citrine is an excellent stone for energizing and recharging. Citrine stimulates digestion, the spleen, and the pancreas. It negates infections in the kidney and bladder, helps eye problems, increases blood circulation, detoxifies the blood, activates the thymus, and balances the thyroid. It has a warming effect and fortifies the nerves.
Wear Citrine on fingers or throat in contact with the skin. Wearing a Citrine point down brings the golden ray of spirit into the physical realm.
I have been designing and hand making unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for over 12 years. My collection of beads and findings is always growing and I continue to take classes to learn new techniques and increase my knowledge of jewelry design. I recently joined my local Gem and Mineral Society to further my knowledge of gemstones and minerals.
I currently show and sell my jewelry and accessories at The Hub Community Center for the Arts (at the corner of Georgia and Marin Streets - Vallejo, CA), I can also be found on the second Friday of the Month at the downtown Artwalk also at the corner of Georgia and Marin Streets and on my website www.designsbypattiek.com.
I can always accommodate a friend in need of a gift or last minute event. My inspirations come from many things but mostly from the gemstones themselves. When I look at individual stones they inspire me to make something beautiful.
I redesign and re-purpose old pieces of jewelry and make some jewelry repairs (based on a free one-on–one consultation).
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
