Sweet Soutache Success
The free-form, technique of beading and sewing known as Soutache is a wonderful creative activity with a free-spirit.
Welcome to the Club Creative Studio blog. Today, we focus on the Bohemian-style art form. Bold and organic in form, this technique is fun to create.
Soutache is a narrow herringbone pattern braid used as fiber trimming. Many have used this free-form technique as a jewelry application. I have also found a new-found appreciation for combining my beading and sewing creative skills.
This ribbon weaving between beads is called Soutache (pronounced sü-‘tash) and I just adore wrapping and folding around my bead stash. The beads and cords are held together with stitches of thread. It’s my kind of sewing. Making unique one-of-a-kind jewelry creations.
I have discovered that I have best results when my designs in Soutache are not planned but are random. I let the cord and my beads inspire the design and lead me to the final results.
