Bealtaine and the Festival of Fire was the beginning of the Summer season. It was celebrated with fire. Great bonfires were built and represented the purification and transition from the darker seasons into the warmer weather. It was the start of the longer days, the time of growth and the hope of a good harvest. In Medieval Ireland, Bealtaine was celebrated on the central hill of Uisneach. This was 'the mystical navel of Ireland', upon which rested a great stone Ail na Míreann. It was said to mark the meeting point of the five provinces. This is designed by me in Ireland. It represents the flames and fire of Bealtaine. Irish design, sterling silver.
