Autumnal Wildlife Ornaments

Autumn signifies a change throughout the countryside where leaves change from vibrant green to crisp browns and yellows. Nature starts preparing for the onset of colder and harsher weather.

This year Swarovski have released a couple of wildlife ornaments in a lovely golden crystal colour that is very appropriate right now as we watch the leaves falling from the trees.

Swarovski Squirrel, Crystal Copper

Swarovski Squirrel, Crystal Copper

We have a family of squirrels currently scouting the garden for food so this ornament is quite appropriate to showcase! It's fashioned from faceted Violet crystal but has then been coated in a Copper coating, giving it a wonderful finish, picking and choosing from an autumnal palette as the light bounces off it. His big bushy tail and cute little face making him so loveable, perhaps because of the inquisitive expression from the Jet crystal nose and eyes.

If you're not quite ready to display Christmas ornaments and are looking for a transitional piece, this cute squirrel with innovative crystal coating is a fantastic choice

Swarovski Doe & Fawn, Crystal Golden Shadow

Swarovski Doe & Fawn, Crystal Golden Shadow

Another woodland creature ornament from Swarovski is the Doe and Fawn set. The baby deer looks at life with an innocent inquisition, eager to learn and to bond with its mother. Older and wiser, the doe has seen what life can bring and is highly protective for its young.

This wonderful ornament shows a combination of youth and inexperience with age and wisdom. It's a heart-warming ornament and can be displayed all year around, not just as the nights draw in earlier and the temperatures plummet.

The doe sparkles in faceted Crystal Golden Shadow whilst the fawn is crafted from faceted Crystal Golden Shine. Both have Jet crystal detailing and are perfect for creating your own charming woodland scene.
