There’s nothing like a little glimpse into the future – especially if it reveals the hauntingly beautiful feel woven together by Sarahbeth Larrimore of Unabashed Apparel!
This snippet of winter’s spell is part of the Fall and Winter line for 2011, featuring a completely new collection of Bullfinch and Barbury bangles made to evoke the same lonely, graceful effect as seen in this image. Sarahbeth orchestrated a varied collection of talents to bring this line together – in addition to bangles, Necklaces and Earrings are by Lauren Haupt Jewelry, Handmade Chairs are by Domus Aurea Woodworking Studio, Makeup by Serenity Eyre, Photography by Jana Busbin . . . and of course, clothing by none other than Unabashed Apparel.
The future is looking quite captivating!
Poor, neglected blog! Here’s a post that should reflect how I’ve been spending my time (because it’s probably too clear that those extra hours haven’t been devoted to writing on here)! Just in time for Autumn, I was invited to create some new bangles to pair with a line of Fall fashions from Unabashed Apparel.
Sarahbeth Larrimore is the creative, color addict responsible for designing a collection of clothing that is saturated with rich tones and sumptious details. Her designs are certainly inventive – and not without a bit of bohemian flare – but still give a nod to the classic lines and forms that make each piece feel timeless.

The images of this Autumn line are laced with a gilded type of Gothic beauty – and a haunting touch of mystery. So perfectly suited for the time of year and my personal favorite of all the holidays: Hallowe’en! When described to me, Sarahbeth summed up her vision as:
“The general theme is a very magical – rich, saturated colored affair. I’m thinking some deep ink bottle green, midnight blue, orchid, raspberry, pumpkin – and some steel blue/grey with a bit of gilt for golden measure.”

I met this marvelous artisan through Etsy, where I got my first sampling of her work: a lovely raspberry colored layering top with lacey accents. That top has such a supple, delicious feel against the skin – it has made it’s way into some of the photos of my other jewelry.
Making these bracelet sets to pair with Unabashed Apparel’s Fall clothing has been such an enjoyable and inspiring project. Please take a look at our hard work – and share your thoughts here!
