LET'S PARTY! CITRUS turns 14!!!!!

TODAY'S THE FINAL DAY OF OUR 14 DAY BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!

CITRUS founder (not your typical Karen, btw) puts a spotlight on a favourite design, puts it on Sale, and provides one random customer a Giveaway prize.

DAY 14 April 29, 2021

Karen's Fave: LAYERED OBSESSION

LAYERED OBSESSION

Why Karen loves it:

  • Everyone needs a long necklace to love (and love them back). This is IT! 
  • It's the different chain textures, the personalized pendant and the wrapping that Karen's obsessed with.
  • 3 separate layers to wear + love, solo or together!

How to Wear it:  We love the 60" layer wrapped short (don't worry, you can fold the back over and it will stay in place so it doesn't feel like it's tightening as you wear it) and let the ends hang down or fold them over OR wrap it again!

Style Mantra:  Mod layers.

Day 14 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Wendy Markham ON shared this about CITRUS:

"Thank you for all of your perseverance and ability to pivot and stay positive.  Have always LOVED the product, but loved even more when you adopted GOOD FOOT delivery service in Toronto for young adults with developmental disabilities and for your support of Abbey's Goal, and I am sure many other community based organizations"

DAY 13 April 28

Karen's Fave: 25MM THICK YELLOW GOLD HOOPS

25MM THICK YELLOW GOLD HOOP EARRINGS

Why Karen loves it:

  • sometimes you just need a pretty pair of hoops. Even for a stud gal like Karen, reaching for hoops make you feel extra special some days....and we all need that feeling right now.
  • our hoops really are special. Not only are they proudly made in Canada, but they are hollow so they aren't too heavy (even the largest 65mm size!) and they bounce back into shape when you naturally twist them taking them on and off, so you don't need to worry about their shape being compromised.

How to Wear it:  Reach for these any day that you need a pretty, sunny pick-me-up feeling.

Style Mantra:  Whenever you want to feel golden.

"Karen-you rock! Customer service is top notch.  I love your ideas as we create the piece.  They are my go to jewelry and I wear them often.  Each occasion I have purchased for has been spot on. Keep going-we all need a little citrus in our life!"


DAY 12 April 27

Karen's Fave: SILVER AQUAMARINE MORSE CODE NECKLACE

SILVER AQUAMARINE MORSE CODE NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it:

  • we love the meaning of Aquamarine; a gemstone believed to provide calming, soothing, cleansing, inspire truth, trust and letting go.
  • a group of close friends often have a code word or a special saying that reminds them of each other and the moments they've created together. Here's a great opportunity to wear it and feel connected to those special friends without having to explain it to anyone.

How to Wear it:  We like it worn short. Not choker, but at 16" or 18" as it will sit in a "U" shape so is nice worn close to the neck.

Layer it: Layer this with a longer necklace that sits in a "V" shape.  Our faves are layers 2, 3 + 4 from the Layered Chain Reaction or the Johanna Sweet Necklace or any of the Coin Necklace designs.

Style Mantra:  Pretty everyday.

Day 12 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Kristie, Essa ON shared this about how she feels when she wears a CITRUS design:

"IT MAKES ME FEEL BEAUTIFUL!"

 

DAY 11 April 26

Karen's Fave: SUNSHINE NECKLACE

 SUNSHINE NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it

    • it's a simple design that packs a bespoke punch with the initial + birthstone of the wearer.
    • it's the perfect starter necklace for a girl; it's small enough that it won't interfere with her active lifestyle and strong enough to withstand cartwheels + summersaults.

How to Wear it:  The charms are small and will get lost on a longer chain. So keep it short and wear it at 14" (kids), 16", 18" or 20"

Layer it: This one is lovely worn solo, but if layering is your mantra, choose the Endless Summer Necklace or any fine chain 2-4" shorter.

Style Mantra:  Simple everyday.

Day 11 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Peggy, Toronto ON shared this about a CITRUS design she gifted:

"I gave my twin sister a bracelet with BTBFF on it. I have the same bracelet, BTBFF means born together best friends forever! She loved it!!!   Beautiful, unique custom jewellery. Excellent quality and pricing too!!! So nice to support a small business with passion for design!"

 

 

DAY 10 April 25

Karen's Fave: TRIPLE BUD NECKLACE

TRIPLE BUD NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it

    • because it's a pretty way to wear the initials of her favourite people. The silver spacers between each initial BUD charm prevent the charms from covering each other, so there's full visibility of all the initials.
    • because it's an easy everyday design that's super casual.

How to Wear it:  Because of its rounded shape, we prefer it with a rounded neckline best, but if you wear it close to the necklace (16" or 18") then it will work with a V neckline too.

Layer it: This one looks nice with the Simple Birthstone Necklace, Tiny Heart Necklace worn 2 - 4" shorter OR a longer necklace 4" longer that sits in the shape of a V like the Sweet Birthstone Necklace

Style Mantra:  Simple everyday.

Day 10 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Roxanne, Thunder Bay ON shared this about how she would describe CITRUS to a friend"

"Clean lines, comfortable to wear, feminine, strong. I first saw a pendant on a music teacher in Toronto 10 or 11 years ago. Made a huge impression as I looked you up when I wanted to buy some jewelry."

 

DAY 9 April 24

Karen's Fave: LAYERED CHAIN REACTION

https://craftedbycitrus.com/products/layered-chain-reaction?variant=37758026743959

Why Karen loves it

    • When the world changes (and it will!) and we embrace going back out into the world again (remember hugs?), we will certainly reach for our favourite clothes, go to our favourite restaurants and hang out with our other favourite people (we need to shake up the bubble). When we do, this design will be ready and waiting to add glamour to your life. This will be your coming-out-of-covid design to mark this moment in time. Are you ready? 
    • 6 days a week you'll find Karen wearing some or all of these layers, depending on her neckline. Having 4 layers made for you is amazing, but playing around with some layers today and mixing it up tomorrow breaks the lockdown routine.  
    • The Paperclip chain is an every day must have; adjusted somewhere between 16" and 20" depending on the other layers she's wearing. 
    • The thick Franco chain is a show stopper IRL and on the zoom. It's thick and adds beautiful texture and is the perfect 2nd layer in this design.
    • Sometimes Karen wears the Herringbone chain solo for a flashy layer just inside a round or boat necklace.

How to Wear it:  Avoid a deep scoop or square neckline if you're wearing the long "V" shaped chain with the pendant (the pendant adds the weight and pulls it down in a "V" shape). Otherwise works beautifully with other necklines. And it’s A-Ok to have some layers lying on your skin and the longer laying over top of your shirt or blouse.

Layer it: This is layering perfection! 4 separate necklaces (with significant sterling silver, might we add) that can be worn together, or paired down to 1 or 2 or 3.  And we love that the Paperclip Chain is completely adjustable so make that a fun wild card and wear it any length.

Style Mantra:  Contemporary with a dash of just watch me

Day 9 GIVEAWAY WINNERLeanne, Calgary AB shared this:

"I have been so happy with all of the pieces I have ordered from you, but my favorite is still the first one I acquired, a necklace with my daughters’ initials stamped on the pendants.  It is so beautiful yet so simple, I can wear it with everything.

I have recommended Citrus to many people over the years.  Great quality products and great customer service!

Congratulations on your 14th birthday.."

 

DAY 8 April 23

Karen's Fave: FAMILY CONNECTION DIME NECKLACE

FAMILY CONNECTION DIME NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it

  • For many years, people have been telling us stories of finding dimes in the most unusual places; which they believed to be a sign from someone they've lost that they were deeply connected to. Last Fall, Karen lost her Dad and within days found her first dime which she strongly believes was a sign that he was still with them, watching over her and her family. You can read the story here, but clearly it also felt like a sign to honour those precious dimes in a way that allows you to connect to your lost loved one in a special, meaningful way.  

How to Wear it:  We've added other charms to this piece so you can connect to other loved ones too. Wear it any day that want to feel grounded and crave a connection to them.

Layer it: This one is typically worn a bit longer because of the number of charms. No need to wear anything else with this one, it's all you need (in so many ways).

Style Mantra:  Deeply personal + grounded

Day 8 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Megan, Toronto ON shared this about an occasion she gifted CITRUS and the recipient's reaction: 

"I bought my sister the leather bracelet and charm in her favourite colour - blue. I had the word serendipity stamped into it. It was our dad’s favourite word that he tried to work into every conversation. We laughed together. Cried a little bit. She put it on right away and kept on looking at it the entire night. She was thrilled when I showed her that she could put it on a chain as well."

 

DAY 7 April 22

Karen's Fave: VICTORIA NECKLACE

VICTORIA NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it

  • Rose Gold is so pretty + feminine, and having the silver mixed in makes it wearable for so many skin tones. More on which metal looks best on you here.  
  • Initial necklaces are a great way to show your mama pride. It can be quietly bespoke and still connect you to your favourite people. This one is a great choice for the mom with a growing family, as you can just add another Silver Bud or Rose Gold Bud charm as more kiddos come along.

How to Wear it: Made to be your everyday necklace. 

Layer it: We love this one worn at 20", with another Rose Gold Sparkle chain (no pendant) worn 2 or 4" shorter. There's your easy peasy, gorgeous layered look.

Style Mantra:  Rose gold is so romantic + feminine

Karen's Fave
: LOVE MORSE CODE BRACELET STACK
DAY 6 April 21

LOVE MORSE CODE BRACELET STACK

Why Karen loves it

  • Karen's a sucker for Rose Quartz; the gemstones of unconditional love and this stack has 2 pretty layers of rose quartz. Plus, pink is one of her fave colours!
  • Now, more than ever, when there are so many things out of control, love is one thing that we know we really, really need. Giving + receiving love is probably what has kept us sane in these last 13+ months.
  • A bracelet stack is a no-brainer; it's like a 5 piece power suit; you just put it on and you don't even have to think about it.

How to Wear it: With anything, really!

Layer it: The beauty of this stack is that it's all you need on your wrist but feel free to layer with other complimentary layers.

Style Mantra:  Pretty + feminine

Day 6 GIVEAWAY WINNERJennifer, Aurora ON shared this about an occasion CITRUS was gifted for and how it made the gift recipient feel: 

"Gifted to someone far away who’s having a baby. She loved it, a little emotional when she opened it. Wears it to remind herself that she’s loved and supported, even from far away.
Another recent piece gifted for a friend during a difficult divorce; Strength bracelet. To remind her of her inner strength and resiliency. Was very emotional when she received it. Was the big hug I couldn’t give her during COVID."

 

DAY 5 April 20

Karen's Fave: ZING PENDANT

 

ZING PENDANT

Why Karen loves it

  • This was an early Citrus design; can't remember if the design inspiration came from Oprah, or just the idea of a squashed "O".  It doesn't really matter, because we love its irregular shape that is truly unique.
  • It's funny how what was popular in the beginning comes back around as this one had a short rest, but chunkier pendants are having a major comeback, especially when layered with other necklaces (double tap) so it's become a best seller, again!
  • The pic above is an old one from our first website (when black background was a cool thing).  We pulled it out of the CITRUS archive because we love that it's stamped CITRUS (which is kinda sweet because it is OUR birthday!)

How to Wear it: This will sit in a "V" shape so it looks best with a "V" neckline, or worn over a crew neck slightly longer so it doesn't compete with the edge of the shirt. 

Layer it: Chunky chains are making a comeback, so wear this one on the Thick Ball Chain and layer with a shorter Herringbone or Paperclip chain, or both!!!

Style Mantra:  Achieve a contemporary look when worn with a chunky chain and layered with 1 or 2 shorter chains (one shorter chunky and another between the two that is more delicate; stay tuned, we'll post this on social today)

Day 5 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Katia, Mississauga ON shared this about how wearing her CITRUS piece makes her feel: 

"I wear it everyday since I got it. It makes me proud to wear names of my kids close to my heart. It became a piece of me, and  I will most likely wear it till the last day. Huge statement, but true."

DAY 4 April 19

Karen's Fave: O CANADA NECKLACE

O CANADA NECKLACE

Why Karen loves it

  • There is something special (dare we say "lucky") about wearing a penny from your milestone year; whether it's your birth year or year of a special milestone. Each penny is cleaned + polished to almost new condition, but there's an appreciation for the adventures each penny has been on and the stories it could tell.
  • The Canadian maple leaf charm, combined with your lucky penny....it's like your Canadian pride is spilling all over the place.
  • We love the fact that Penny Oleksiak wore this necklace shortly after winning 4 gold medals at the Rio Olympics in 2016. Talk about Canadian pride!

How to Wear it: Wear it with your comfy clothes and wear it with pride.

Layer it: Sure, why not!  Wear it with a smaller, delicate chain 2" or 4" shorter like the Tiny Heart Necklace or Simple Necklace.

Style Mantra: the casual Canuck, eh!

Day 4 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Jennifer, Quispamsis NB shared this about how wearing her CITRUS piece makes her feel: 

"Heart warmed. My original piece was a long necklace with my children’s names on it. Recently my husband bought me two dimes marking the year of my parent’s passing. Dimes from heaven (as your story went)"

 

DAY 3 April 18

Karen's Fave: STRENGTH MORSE CODE BRACELET STACK

Strength Morse Code Bracelet Stack

Why Karen loves it

  • Now more than ever, we need to find strength wherever we can. Wearing STRENGTH in morse code is a subtle reminder to channel our inner Wonder Woman (and sometimes that's what helps us get through the day).
  • The scent of sandalwood.....Mmmmmmm. 
  • This stack is full of neutral colours. Some days we set aside the green aventurine and just go for all the other neutral layers. This stack is in the regular rotation and with the weather warming up, we'll be showing off our wrists again (finally).

How to Wear it: Wear this with anything and everything! The neutral colours go with everything from jeans + white tee, to our favourite silk kimono.

Layer it: YES + NO 😆   Of course you can layer with other bracelets, but the beauty of a stack is that the layers are already covered. You don't need to think about adding anything else!

DAY 2 April 17

Karen's Fave: FOREVER NECKLACE

Forever Necklace 

Why Karen loves it

  • The circle in the middle is perfectly symbolic of ‘forever’, as a circle is naturally unending.
  • It’s a simple, delicate design that is perfect to wear solo as a short layer and/or worn with a pendant at a longer length.  The picture shows Karen wearing it solo at 16” AND at 20” with the SWEET pendant attached (and personalized with FIERCE; her mantra at the time.)
  • Karen's daughter, Kate, also loves it. Kate maybe 1,400 km away from home, but it makes Karen smile when they facetime and coincidently are both wearing the Forever Necklace; it somehow feels like they are a little more connected.

How to Wear it: This necklace naturally sits in a “U” shape, so wear it short (not choker, but 1” or 2” longer) and it will follow the shape of your neck and go with whatever neckline you’re wearing (well hello, versatility!)

Layer it: YES, absolutely! Karen loves wearing 2 Forever Necklaces 😊  ideally with a 4” gap between the 2 strands. The longer strand can have the SWEET pendant (shown), LEMON or MARMALADE pendant on it depending on how much stamping/personalization you need. Wear them together, or apart...the choice is yours!

Style Mantra: simple + delicate and suitable at any age.

Day 2 GIVEAWAY WINNER: Kristin, Toronto who shared this about how a gift recipient responded to receiving a CITRUS gift: 

"This past year has been esp hard. My BFF and I had plans to travel last year to celebrate 40 and well, you know.... she lives on her own, works so hard and spoils everyone around her. She has been struggling with some self doubt and has felt like she's being asked to "sparkle less". When your rose gold "Because I fucking Sparkle" necklace came up, I knew it had to be hers! She was so so excited to receive the gift, she actually howled with giddiness when she read it!"

 

DAY 1 April 16

Karen's Fave: SOPHIE NECKLACE

Sophie Necklace

Why Karen loves it

  • It’s an elegant statement necklace. There’s a lotta sterling silver here to grab attention! Plus, we love the continuity of the circles between the pendant and chain. Circles are timeless!
  • The toggle makes it quick + easy to take on and off.
  • It includes our best selling SUNNY pendant (with room for 30 characters including spaces)

Fun fact: We made this one for Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and she sent us a handwritten thank you note (it’s like she’s speaking our love language)

Layer it: Nope, not this one. It’s one and done, it stands alone perfectly!

How to Wear it: Ideally with a V Necklace top, as the necklace sits in a V shape.

Style Mantra: the corporate, elegant mom.

    Thank you Karen for your beautiful jewelry! I have so many pieces of my own and have bought so many meaningful gifts for special people in my life. Your work is incredible!!

    — Kim Colle

  • Apr 15, 2021

    Karen, I am so proud to give your jewellery as gifts and be able to say that they were made by someone I grew up with. They have always been received with admiration for the uniqueness that they represent for everyone that wears them. When I wear my own pieces, I know I am always asked where I purchased them from. Happy to support this great adventure you started 14 years ago.

    — Shelley Bannon
