Soutache - again!


I am supposed to give a workshop on soutache embroidery on PUSS beading convention in Stockholm in October. Yesterday, I woke up with a nightmare - dreaming that I have arrived there but have forgotten all the kits and my tutorial was not ready. What a NIGHTMARE indeed ;)

It was a good kick to finish one of old projects in that technique. Voilá - meet my new soutache pendant, Helen.
The cab is Russian Sunstone, with a very nice sparkle in it. All the soutache colors I've used can be found in it.

Soon in my Etsy store - I have not added any new items for ages...

This is Fabulous! I have never heard of Soutache embroidery. Will have to see if anyone teaches it here in the US. Do you ever do tutorials?

Wonderful! Such a lovely technique - I am going to look it up as I am not familiar with it. Great job!

Foxan said...

Thanks again!
Cenya & Anka, I'm working on a tutorial as we speak ;)
