Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Black Raven Beads Mystic Autumn Forest Collection.
This new collection comes just in time for the Autumn Equinox, the first day of Autumn was on September 22, which means we are officially in the Season of Autumn, the most magical season of the year. For myself, I love Autumn and Spring! Mild temperatures and nature is at its finest! During these two seasons Mother Earth does her finest art.
I personally feel that this collection will be loved by many. I think most of us have a strong connection with nature and it’s beautiful abundance and these beads represents the season and nature perfectly.
Mystic Autumn Forest
Unfold your own myth
“Whilst animals prepare for winter, humans also begin making our own homes a comforting environment as the dark evenings close in. Autumn brings a sense of closure, a time for reflection and warm thoughts. There’s also a sense of melancholy, of loss to be felt. Autumn is the time to take stock. Leaves decay; having finished their life cycle, they mulch down and return to the ground that gave them life. The forest turns into a beautiful colour palette. It’s all mystic if you look around you. Close your eyes and wander to another world full of creatures and animals preparing for the long winter. Rustling leaves around you. Movements you hear but don’t always see. A hedgehog emerges from hiding. Acorns fall. In the distance, a house. You get closer and watch the witches dancing around a campfire. They say aloud an affirmation: Cleanse this space. Remove the past. I’ve found my happiness at long last. Fill this space with joy and love. Send your blessings from above. Open your eyes and start your mystical life! “~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Bumblebee Jasper LE is a beautiful stone with colors ranging from yellow, orange, gray, black and some may have white, as well. I was surprised and happy to see this stone as part of the release. Both stones are limited, but I will say that if you love stones, I would add this to your collection as soon as possible. Bumblebee Jasper in the crystal and stone world, is one of the harder stones to find and tends to be quite pricey. This is the stone of strength, courage, transformation, opportunity and manifestation. It is said to enhance creativity, focus and passion. Bumblebee Jasper measures approximately 13 mm high x 11 mm wide and retails for €45 / $43.
All stones and glass beads have sterling silver core that will fit most branded carriers.
“Just bee yourself. Bumblebee jasper helps you find happiness and be positive in life. The stone inspires and shows you your life path and passion. It gives you the courage and perseverance to follow your heart. It makes you feel happy, even in the darker months.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Crazy Lace Agate LE is the perfect stone for Autumn with shades of red, orange, cream and white. This stone will bring harmony and balance to your life and has even been referred to as the “laughter stone”. It’s the perfect stone to add to any collection. On top of being a balancing stone, in bringing joy and absorbing emotional pain, it’s also good for protection and warding off the evil eye. Crazy Lace Agate measures approximately 13 x 11 and retails for €45 / $43.
“ If a thought brings you stress, get another one. Crazy Lace Agate is called the Laughter Stone, or “Happy Lace,” They bring joy to all in its presence. It can help you overcome negativity, heal anger, foster love, and give you the courage to start over. The stone serves as a reminder of how it feels to be loved and comforted. It is a great gift. Find your true self and forget all that’s happening in the world. “ ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Mystic Path is a beautiful glass bead in creamy shades of beige, with sort of an opal effect within the markings that have a blueish outline. It’s a rather unique glass bead that is perfect for a autumn bracelet or neutral bracelet. Mystic Path measures approximately 16 x 9 and retails for €45 / $43.
“Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Spiritual Trail matches the Mystic Path nicely, but on top of this opal-like backdrop you will find beautiful fall shades of red splattered about. Spiritual Trail measures approximately 16 x 9 and retails for $45 / $43.
“To walk the spiritual trail is to step out continually into the unknown.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Magical Moss is another fun bead that will fit in nicely with Autumn beads in shades of beige, moss green, blue and deep dark navy blue. I love the textured look of this glass bead. Magical Moss measures approximately 16 x 9 and retails for €45 / $43.
“Don’t be afraid to shine; the world needs your light.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Twirling Leaves has a beautiful beige backdrop with a nice brick red ornament design which is nicely done. Both colors will tie in nicely with the other three glass beads in this release. I really love how well these beads match each other. Twirling Leaves measures approximately 16 x 9 and retails for €45 / $43.
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Curious Hedgehog is such a cute sterling silver bead with a little hedgehog inside a stump, and mushrooms on the side. This bead measures approximately 11 x 9 x 9 and retails for €39 / $37.

Black Raven Beads Vixen Lazy Fox is my favorite! I love how this sleeping Fox wraps around the bracelet. It is so adorable with textured hair, head and and shape are perfect. This little fox would also be perfect resting on top of stones on a fantasy necklace. With this design you can get creative in how you wear it. The Vixen Lazy Fox measures approximately 13 x 13 x 8 and retails for €39 / $37.

Black Raven Beads Pinecone Hedgehog is such a creative design where the backside of this bead is indeed a pinecone and the front is an adorable hedgehog. I love that this bead has a pinecone which is symbolic. A pinecone made of silver either worn or as a holiday decoration during the holiday season is said to bring good luck the following year. It is also a symbol of enlightenment, resurrection, eternal life and regeneration. The Pinecone Hedgehog measures approximately 14 x 10 x 13 and retails for €43 / $41.
“Inside a spiky exterior, there is a tender heart.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Backside is the pinecone!
Black Raven Beads Honey Bear is a happy little bear that is relaxing while holding on to her leg and a bowl of honey! She is so cute wearing a flower as a hat. Honey Bear measures approximately 14 x 11 x 9 and retails for €43 / $41.
“Life is a flower, for which love is the honey.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Black Raven Beads Witch House releases just in time for Halloween! Though I’d wear this bead all year. I like to think we all have a magical little witch inside us. This adorable little sterling silver cottage with stone walls, little windows, a wooden door with a moon and doorknob on the front, on top reminds me of the tile roofs, with smoke coming out the chimney and a mushroom on the back side of the roof, and on the back you will see more stones, a vine, small window and in the middle is a round window cracked open with a cats tail hanging out. There is just so much detail in this bead and truly a fun bead! The Witch House measures approximately 14 x 12 x 12 and retails for €43 / $41.
“Those who do not believe in magic will never find it.” ~ Black Raven Beads
How cute is this little cats tail hanging from the window?
Black Raven Beads Mouse Lock is so sweet! On one side is a little playful mouse and the other side has beautiful foliage. The lock is nicely made and is easy to open and attach to your bracelet. Works with all brands bracelets that use this type of clasp. The size is nice measuring approximately 21 x 12 x 8 and retails for €55 / $52.
“Though she is but little, she is fierce.” ~ Black Raven Beads
Here you can see the beautiful leaves on the backside of the lock.
