Mandarin Soutache Sensation (20) Beginner

Tassels and trims at Creativ Festival

Fernando DaSilva will explore the latest new trend in Jewelry Making

Soutache was used in the 16th century to make a wide range of trims and tassels as well as in book bindings. Now it’s one of the hottest trends in jewellery making! Lengths of soutache are stacked to create a visual element and stable base for the addition of beads. It’s flexible and can be curved and shaped into many patterns. And, as it is extremely light-weight, like a well-made piece of clothing, it will conform to the wearer’s body. Fernando takes soutache to the next level by wrapping a trim around Rhinestone cupchain for this trendy piece. Sponsor: Dazzle-it™
