Autumn 2011 and Mystic Forest

At Lughnasadh, the first harvest, there is a shift from summer growing time to harvest time. Although summer temperatures may still be high, the mood and sensation of the year is decidedly different as the changes in the light from the waning sun become more evident. Those of us who love autumn may feel a spark of excitement.

At this first harvest I chose to present a Mystic Forest sub-series to mark the balanced transition between summer and autumn. Twining leaves and vines are paired with stunning gemstone cabochons in an all-metal-clay collection.

Autumn enters just after Mystic Forest. It's a huge collection with more surprises to come as we approach the actual Autumnal Equinox.
