Soutache & Bead Embroidery
Come find some new ways to reinvent your jewelry making skills with Soutache and Bead Embroidery at GoodyBeads.com. Soutache comes from the French word for braid-sewn ornaments on military uniforms. Today, it is used in many haute couture creations, fashion and jewelry. The flat braid with a groove down the middle can be used to layer and weave looping designs around your favorite Pearl, Gemstone, Briolette or Cabochon. Throw in some seed beads for accenting layers and you have a hip, boho, or vintage style to share with your friends.
