Fairy Charm Beads- one for each season

Our charming Fairies have just flown in to help us celebrate the seasons. Wear them one at a time as the year turns 'round, or together as a set.

Fairy charms make wonderful tooth fairy gifts (left under the pillow from the tooth fairy).

Do you believe in fairies?

Summer Fairy is holding the first bright summer ray of sunshine. She reminds us to celebrate the fun of the season, to frolic and picnic in nature, go exploring, listen to the birds, and smell the flowers on the long sunny days of summer.

Autumn Fairy has her hood up and is holding the first fall colored leaf. She reminds us to enjoy the harvest that Summer brought, prepare our homes for the upcoming season, and enjoy the cool splendor of the Autumn

"No spring, nor summer beauty hath such grace

As I have seen in one autumnal face"
—John Donne

Winter Fairy is holding her crystal snowflake wand. She takes great delight in the long, cozy nights of winter, family gatherings, telling stories around the fireplace, and the beauty of fresh rain and snow.

Spring Fairy is walking in the garden gathering her first bouquet of Spring. She celebrates the new season, a time of change and fresh starts, blooming flowers, gentle spring rains, and visiting birds.

The world is very old;
But every Spring
It groweth young again,
And Fairies sing.

Cecily Mary Barker, Flower Fairies of the Spring (1923)
