Designer Nancy Donaldson is teaching herself how to work with Soutache cords. I gave her all the cord colours to play with and she sent me back these fabulous samples!
I love the combination of colours she choose for this first brooch. Green and orange soutache cord with the green Fire and Ice agate beads.
This brooch is a showstopper!
Yellow and purple soutache cord along with the yellow Fire and Ice Agate beads!
I am so happy to share this bracelet designed with Dazzle-it products by Elizabeth Macfarlane. Elizabeth is from Burlington, Ontario and she has been making embroidering jewelry for the last 20 years.
Our new Dazzle-it Soutache collection includes cord and Czech pellets is many different colours. You can create a design to match any colour palette you like.
“A practical pressed bead, PRECIOSA Pellet™, whose shape enables it to supplement many varied types of beads and seed beads, has been presented in Preciosa Ornela’s new collection for the upcoming season. The so-called interlocking effect is enabled by the central slimming of the glass cylinder in the 4/6 mm size which means that the individual beads interlock precisely during a simple stringing.”
We have so many different colours in the Preciosa Pellet family of beads. I selected this one to match the design of a new free project from Preciosa Inspirations.
You can download the instructions to make this here.
This hot pink kumihimo bracelet showcases several Dazzle-it stringing options.
I used hot pink soutache, rattail, faux suede lace and waxed cotton cords.
Together the cords looked very nice on my kumihimo disk.
The finished braid is fabulous! I used our kumihimo end cap set to finish my project.
These are my first attempts at working with soutache cord. There are so many fabulous examples of Soutache jewelry that I wanted to see how I can add this special cord to my current design work.
I announced our new Dazzle-it Soutache collection earlier this month. We have so many colours to choose from.
You can find our Soutache cord on spools or plastic bobbins. I love this lemon zest and strawberry pink combination.
I think you’ll discover that you can create perfectly balanced or free form pieces. If you are like me and prefer things that are not perfect you will enjoy working without a set design.
