Behold the Death of the Sun and the Coming of the Introspective Winter. May its cold winds and frozen lights guide us to the Depths of the Self. May we all cherish in its lifeless cloak. And await, for something is about to come…
Herbs for the new Occvlta Jewelry Collection, prepared and photographed by me: Edelweiß (Leontopodium alpinum), Nelke (Dianthus caryophyllus), Kronen-Lichtnelke (Silene coronaria), Gänseblümchen (Bellis perennis), Phönizische Königskerze (Verbascum phoeniceum)

Prepare the ointments and sacrifices for the Great Night. A slight preview of what’s coming next at Occvlta. Try to guess…
Autumn shows its signs of starting, and so we move slowly but surely to prepare for the cold half of the year. The fiends of the Old Ways and sorcery will now lead our steps towards the Death of Summer. Black hens and serpents, lizards and beasts will now serve as talisman and aid.
May the leaves turn bloody red, the chestnuts roast and the Dead come back soon.
Fire beast that rises from the depths. Bringer of renewal whose skin shifts and purifies in a circle. Your remains shall not be discarded.
Soon to come.
Trust only the twigs that block your path, trust only the sting that bleeds your hands, trust only the roots that make you fall, trust only the darkness close at hand.
A Sabbatical encounter, all the tools arranged and ready for the frenzy.
Mushrooms, herbs, roots, and bones, all mingled together in the cauldron of inspiration.
And then, one by one, taken from the hands of the witch gardeners and forest sheperds, and disposed in the poisoned altar.
This is the fruit of the poison, the result of the darkest messages found in the woods. Hope they will be properly used, cherished and sacralized.
None of this would have been possible without the contribution of the precious materials we so fortunately found in Teufelskunst. This shall be the first step in a long path.
