Stone of the Month For October
Attributes – Tourmaline cleanses, purifies, and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration,it grounds spiritual energy, clears and balances all the chakras, and forms a protective shroud around the body.
Tourmaline is a shamanic stone that brings protection during rituals. It can be used for scrying and was traditionally used to point to the culprit or cause in times of trouble, and indicate a *good* direction in which to move.
Natural Tourmaline wands are useful healing tools. They clear the aura, remove blockages, disperse negative energy and point to solutions for specific problems. They are excellent for balancing and connecting the chakras. At a physical level, they rebalance the meridians.
Tourmaline is a powerful mental healer, balancing the right-left hemispheres of the brain and transmuting negative thought patterns into positive ones. This stone brings the mental processes, the chakras, and the biomagnetic sheath into alignment. It is helpful in treating paranoia, and for overcoming dyslexia, as it improves hand to eye coordination and the assimilation and translation
of coded information.
I have been designing and hand making unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for over 15 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.
My designs are available on my website: www.designsbypattiek.com or by private appointment to shop in my studio.
My home studio is always open to anyone wishing to view my jewelry items. I'm also always willing to accommodate a friend in need of a gift or last minute event as well. 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.
