Out of all the bold shades that are trending for this autumn, my favourites are the shades of orange and saffron that are too beautiful to pass up. Whether I’m whipping up a batch of Parisian macarons or set of enameled bangles, it seems like warm citrus tones just have a magnetic draw. It seems like the perfect color for mixing – it plays so well with mocha, pink, blue, and purple . . . is there a single color that isn’t set off by an accent of orange?

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!
It’s still balmy . . . especially when I fire up the kiln on these 90 degree July days . . . but let’s talk Autumn anyway.
I have been plotting out some new enameled treats, and ordered some new and unexpected color combinations for Fall for a spin on the classic yellow, orange, red and brown. Here are some of the early ruminations for what’s in store for Fall.
In order to make room for fresh colors and designs, some older bangle sets and necklaces will be having their final hurrah! That means that once they are gone . . . they are gone! I wanted to make sure that there was one last chance to snag these pieces before the holidays.
Here are the latest cuts:
Turkish Delight Bangles
Candied Fig Bangles
East Indies – Calcutta Bangles
East Indies – Sumatra Bangles
East Indies – Tibet Bangles
I’m making sure that there is at least one of each of these items on both my Etsy and 1000 Markets shops – but don’t miss out! If you’ve had your eye on some enameled goodies that happen to be on this list . . . my only advice to you is carpe diem!
Some new pieces of arm candy will be taking the place of the past favourites – not to mention a few more necklaces and earring sets. An entire collection of pieces inspired by frost will be offered in my Etsy shop starting Nov. 1st! All of this new line of work is enameled in trendy palette of greys, nudes and white – with lots and lots of creamy, luminous pearl accents.
(I think a few sneak peaks are in order, since I am very excited about these new lovelies.) More to come!
