For those seeking abundance in business success or financial gain, these golden nuggets encourage a strengthening of personal will, active self-improvement, creative thinking, and inspiration and ideas, which all play a role in achieving those goals.

Rid yourself of negative energy that can bog down your spirit: Wear citrines.

The purging of negative energy is key to the benefits this stone can bring. We are constantly absorbing harmful energy from our environment, which leads to a build-up of toxins that block the flow of our creative ideas. By wearing citrines, their positive energy acts as a purifier to our bodies and minds, which is why it is so often linked to boosting one’s creative process.

Enhance your mental clarity and watch the flow of ideas rush in.

Patty Tobin Pearl Jewelry for Weddingsblog-swny-main-image-part2of3Patty Tobin Pearls in Sophisticated Weddings NY Magazine

It is always exciting to see our jewelry appear in magazines, but it is especially satisfying when it’s a first-rate publication like Sophisticated Weddings that selects our jewelry for its annual issue.

Loving May; Mother’s Day & A New Way To Shop Patty Tobin

May 6, 2017  |  News & Events

Patty Tobin Spring 2017 JewelryMay is one of our favorite months of the year. It’s a month filled with small delights. Things like, tossing those heavy scarves back into the closet, enjoying the lightness of seasonal attire, soaking up all the beautiful bright colors of blossoms blooming all around town, and enjoying the extra hour or two of daylight that comes with the first months of Spring.

With colors popping everywhere and spirits high from the returning warm weather, May is the perfect month to pick up a new piece of Patty Tobin to adorn that freshly bared neck and we have a beautiful selection of new pieces for you to choose from for spring into summer.

Shop During “Ladies Night” & Support Christ the King’s Early Childhood Education Center

Ladies Night March 30, 2017 6-8pm Albany NY

This special (adults-only) event only comes once a year and it is held to raise funds for a wonderful local children’s organization, which is why Patty Tobin will personally travel to Albany to not only attend, but to lend her support for the effort. 

Patty Tobin Jewelry will be showcased and open for sale during the two-hour event, providing guests with an exceptional opportunity to treat themselves AND to give to a wonderful local organization devoted to the learning and education of young children. (Patty has graciously agreed to donate a portion of proceeds directly to Christ the King’s Early Childhood Center.)

Details are available on the Events Page of our website and don’t forget to check out Patty Tobin on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on all her latest designs, upcoming events, and other special announcements.

Big Hearts Bring Big Help

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Patty Tobin is putting her heart into a very special private Trunk Show.
Hosted by Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan (CDPHP).
The event will benefit two inspiring Capital Region non-profits: Family Promise of the Capital Region & The Bus Stop Club.

This Thursday, February 9thPatty Tobin will showcase her beautiful handcrafted semi-precious gemstone and pearl jewelry collection from 11:30AM – 1:30PM for a private trunk show event at CDPHP‘s main office in Albany (visit our events page). For those unfamiliar with CDPHP, it is an award-winning, not-for-profit, physician-founded and doctor-directed health plan provider based up in Albany (where we’re from). The philanthropic arm of the company, CDPHP The Foundation, has earned a reputation for being an excellent and very active benefactor in the communities in which it operates.

Our work with CDPHP has highlighted one aspect of the company’s mission, which I think is particularly distinguishing and progressive. The Foundation goes above and beyond the bounds of what’s “normally” provided by your health care company by actually stepping out and investing real time and real money IN your community.

Logos of philanthropic partners participating

Their efforts “to support civic and cultural activities in CDPHP communities,” are genuinely felt in the communities they serve. This Thursday, for instance will bring together many different philanthropic persons and organizations to work collectively to raise monies for two unique organizations:

Family Promise of the Capital Region (recently named the Charity of Choice for 2017 by CDPHP) helps homeless families stay together and assists them with everything from food and shelter to helping them get back on their feet, find a job, and secure a home for their family in a way that is sustainable. 

The Bus Stop Club, is the second, and it devotes extra time, attention, support — and oftentimes just “fun” — in safe, supervised environments for the siblings of children diagnosed with chronic illness or developmental, physical, or intellectual disabilities; situations which often leave those kids inadvertently neglected or overlooked by parents and family members trying to cope/manage their other child’s all-consuming illness; leaving this child vulnerable to early onset depression.

These Rose Amethyst stones offer a rare shade of lavender…they are translucent, and yet, they still hold varying degrees of rich to pale purple with warm glimmers of honied yellow
that appear and disappear with
the light as you move.

Patty Tobin donation necklace to CDPHP's local Albany Charities

This is the gorgeous Rose Amethyst necklace Patty Tobin is donating to CDPHP for this event. The necklace, a $795 retail value, will be “raffled off” during Thursday’s event and ALL proceeds will go to Family Promise and The Bus Stop Club.

Patty has worked with, participated in, donated to more charitable organizations than any individual or business I’ve ever worked for — and I worked in fundraising for years. Like many Americans, she is a small business owner, bootstrapping her way through these challenging and uncertain times, and as such, I can attest to the fact that donating not only one’s product, but one’s time and energy as well, is no small thing. But, regardless, I have never seen Patty turn her back to any person or group in need of help. Indeed, for being such a tiny person, the woman really does have the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.
