Patty Tobin Debuts in Vilnius & Klaipeda This Week!

November 29, 2011  |  News & Events

After so much planning and anticipation, Patty has landing safely in Vilnius and is now gearing up for not one, but TWO, holiday trunk shows in Lithuania! Our gracious host, Yurga Lago, a renowned jewelry designer in her own right, has been nothing short of amazing. With her help we will be debuting the Patty Tobin collection in the city of Vilnius on Thursday, December 1st from 7:00PM-9:00PM, at Yurga’s boutique. Special guests and press have been invited to attend, so that they might have a chance to meet Patty in person and see her beautiful collection of semiprecious gemstone and freshwater pearl jewelry first-hand.

I saw the collection before Patty left and it is totally “signature” Patty Tobin: gorgeous pearl and gemstones ropes, luscious “gemmy gem gem” torsades, stunning pendants, matching earrings and bold cuff bracelets. One thing is for certain: The women of Vilnius are in for a real treat!

New to the plan — and a very exciting addition — is our second show, which will be hosted again by Yurga at her larger boutique in Klaipeda, a beautiful city situated right on the coast of Lithuania where the mouth of the Nemunas River flows into the Baltic Sea (talk about a great venue). The show will be held on Saturday, December 3rd at 7:00PM.

Stay tuned to hear how it all goes!

Support Small Business Saturday & Get 15% Off Your Purchase at Patty Tobin

November 22, 2011  |  News & Events

Everybody knows about Black Friday, but do you know about Small Business Saturday?? This coming Saturday marks the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday — a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year.

Black Friday has notoriously been the “kickoff” for holiday shopping with big box retailers offering major discounts on everything from home electronics to clothes to bedding, but there are a lot of businesses that get left behind on this “Superbowl” of shopping days and that’s all the little mom and pop stores like us who can’t afford to offer 75% their merchandise.

But here at Patty Tobin, we’re doing our best to offer you a big discount on jewelry! For one day only, we’re offering our customers 15% their purchase at our Chelsea boutique (108 W. 17th Street) and on our online store!!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get a great deal on holiday gifts AND to support a local, family owned small business 🙂 It’s a win-win deal! VISIT OUR ONLINE SHOP NOW! (Enter this code to receive your discount: SBS1126)

Patty Tobin Showcase at United Nations

Yesterday’s showcase at the United Nations Plaza was a smashing success. The women attending the Islamic Heritage Society’s annual luncheon loved the jewelry and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the reception. The event was a special fundraiser for the poverty-stricken country of Somalia with proceeds going to benefit the women and children of the area – a cause we were more than happy to support. The president and board members of the Islamic Heritage Society, along with Anwar Al-Mansoor, the luncheon chair, couldn’t have be lovelier. We hope to work with them again for their annual shopping event this coming Spring.

Our tickets are booked and the date is set for our December 1st trunk show in Vilnius!! This beautiful city is the capital of Lithuania and one of the most up and coming cities in the world today and we couldn’t be more excited to debut Patty Tobin’s collection here in December.

City of Vilnius, Lithuania

The beautiful city of Vilnius, Lithuania

The city displays such an incredible variety of both architectural expression and willpower with an incredibly pleasant and cultured people. Vilnius is home to a deep and interesting history and “has preserved an impressive complex of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical buildings as well as its medieval layout and natural setting,” according to UNESCO’s World Heritage List (1994).

Patty Tobin will be bringing a collection of gemstone jewelry like this Whiskey Topaz Pendant Necklace for her Dec. 1st trunk show in Vilnius.

The city’s rapid growth has made it an epicenter for business in the Baltic Countries and is a destination any world traveler should strongly consider. In 2009, Vilnius was named the European Capital of Culture, and we can understand why. We are thrilled to be hosted by Lithuanian jewelry designer, Yurga Lago, at her boutique in Vilnius to showcase Patty’s collection for our first international showing. We will be bringing a collection of gorgeous semiprecious gemstone necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all handcrafted here in the states.

Support Women In The Military With A Shining Service Bracelet

Women in the military show off their Shining Service Bracelets
Women serving abroad proudly show off their Shining Service Bracelets.

We’re proud to announce the official launch of Shining Service Worldwide™, an organization dedicated to showing appreciation and support for women currently serving in the military, military vets and military spouses. We’ve been a proud participant of this initiative since the beginning and we couldn’t be more pleased with the growing recognition garnered for the 1.8 million women who have served in our armed forces.

When you take a moment to consider the fact that only 1% of Americans serve to protect the other 99% of us, it’s truly an extraordinary service that we couldn’t live without, and one that too often goes without sufficient thanks. In particular, the women serving this country too often fall through the cracks and do not get the attention they deserve, which is why Patty Tobin has partnered with Linda Franklin to develop this important cause whose sole purpose is to support these very women at home and abroad.

Designed by Patty Tobin, the Shining Service Bracelet™ is our way of bringing attention to our military women and also to help fund our mentoring services. Our black and clear crystal bracelets are a beautiful way to say thank you to our women in service and to show your support for veterans and military wives. A portion of proceeds go directly toward our mentoring program, which helps these women to acclimate back into civilian life after active tours.

Additionally, the Shining Service blog has been designed to encourage military women to use their voices and tell their stories. It is meant to be a resource for them to show that help and support is available to them from various sources. The third part of the program is the Shining Service Makeover Missions, which offer beauty makeovers at salons all over the country to these women as a way to reconnect with their feminine side. It also incorporates a three-month mentoring program for each woman, following her makeover, to help her continue to build her self-esteem once home from service. Each woman is provided with an executive mentor and a military mentor so all bases are covered.

More information is available on the Shining Service Worldwide™ website. Get involved today and show your support for these amazing women.

As of September 10th, Patty Tobin jewelry is now available in the Wynwood Art District in Miami! The grand opening of The Chill Conceptat the Hardcore Art Contemporary Space was a huge success and we couldn’t be more excited to have our collection residing in such an innovative space.

The concept for the gallery is so unique and belongs to a truly amazing woman by the name of Nina Fuentes. In her interview with Art Districts Magazine, she explains that her goal in designing The Chill Concept was to “create a visually and emotionally stimulating space where people of all ages could come and reconnect with themselves.”

“I think the time has come for people to integrate art into their daily lives,” she says. “Art should be interactive. It forms part of you as an individual and vice versa.” And that is precisely what is offered at The Chill Concept. It is a place where people can come and interact with one another and various forms of art. We’ve always considered Patty’s jewelry to be wearable pieces of art and it’s truly thrilling to be recognized for that particular quality by a woman like Nina.

With our new installation now up and running, we have no doubt it is a natural fit for this newly designed interactive art space. All of the jewelry on display is available for sale at the gallery, so if you’re in the area, stop by and check out the new collection!
