Classic Soutache braid is a favorite among seamstresses for adding a touch of elegance to accessories. Now, we can easily adapt this beautiful weave into wire jewelry! You'll actually create your own basic, surprisingly simple tool that makes this weave , well, SURPRISINGLY EASY TO MAKE - no more jigs for us! PLUS a special BONUS section on how to add wire virtually invisibly!!! You'll explore reinforcing woven wire and create a clasp that lies flat on the wrist.
For those of you who own my Celtic Braid and Cretan Braid tutorials – this weave is the same – but this is a MUCH easier, versatile, and inexpensive way to accomplish it!
Whether you are a visual learner or read all the text, this tutorial is for you! Presented in an easy to understand, step-by-step comprehensive format, with clear, sharp, and close photos. Numerous tips and troubleshooting make this project easy to finish and help you create your own personal variations.
This tutorial is written as an Intermediate project: great for expanding your skill set! You should know how to turn loops, and coil wire by hand or with a drill.
