Stone of the Month
May - EMERALD
The Emerald has long been associated with fertility, rebirth and love. Today, it is thought that Emeralds signify wisdom, growth and patience.
Emerald imparts mental clarity, strengthens memory, inspires a deep inner knowing, and broadens vision. It is a wisdom stone, promoting discernment and truth, and aiding eloquent expressions.
I have been designing and hand making unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for over 17 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 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 home studio.
My 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.
