“Ssssufferin Soutache” 

Bold, colorful, and hot as can be, Soutache Jewelry has officially “arrived”. 
Soutache braid is a common element in the colorful trims, braids, and tassles used  in the French art of passementerie.
 
Bead Embroiderers, drawn to the  the wide variety of Soutache colors, and textures, began earnestly experimenting stacking, and shaping braids into solid bases,where beads and cabachons could be added. The results of this experimentation can be seen in beautiful  photos on websites, and in industry magazines around the world. 
 
To meet the growing demand for Soutache braids, we have  developed a range of products with renown American Soutache artist, Amee K Sweet.
