I love soutache, a type of braided trim used to embellish clothing and to create jewelry. The 1/8” inch cord comes in a wide range of colors and multiple cords can be used to create elaborate necklaces, earrings and bracelets using beads of all types. I tried my hand at making a soutache bracelet with black/sliver cords and glass pearls. I like the way it turned out but not the time consuming sewing. So, why not try it in polymer clay? Here are some samples I have created. I’ll be giving a demonstration to the Eileen J Loring Polymer Clay Guild in Longmont on August 4. Join us for a great time unleashing our creativity through Faux Soutache.
Here are samples of my Faux Soutache. Hope you enjoy.
