Birth-mineral Earrings of the Month: Golden Citrine


may be a bit parital since my birthday is in November but Citrine has always been one of my favorite minerals. The golden color always catches my eye and I just want to touch it!  Citrine is a mineral that is known for its cleansing and balancing properties. Wear this crystal when you are seeking personal balance, confidence and clarity.

November Birthstone: Topaz  November Birth-mineral: Citrine

Thread the post through the bead and use the pliers to bend a small hook into the base of the post that will hold the bead on it.  Now thread one of the earring hooks onto the post and to finish the earring, bend the post in half and tuck it into the bead.









Let me know if you give these a try and I’d love to see pictures!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have the pliers and the stone, just need the wire now 🙂 My Birthday is in November too, so I guess I might be a tad bias as-well!! 😉

    You are so lucky to have citrine as your birthstone! Mine is peridot…can’t stand it :(. Cheers for the heads up on the earrings…I would need 7 of them and Steve would need 9! 😉

      Haha, that’s awesome…7! 9! wowsers! 🙂

      I’ve always thought peridot was pretty but I like pretty much anything that’s green. Your birth-mineral or crystal is sardonyx, maybe you’ll like that a bit more, the black version with blue swirls through it is really pretty.

        it would go with my eyes better than the green 😉

      Of course, I’m happy to share! Figured it was just so darn easy that anyone could make them and making your own jewelry is pretty fun!
