Q. What is the difference between Rayon Soutache and Polyester Soutache?
A. The BeadSmith’s soutache cord line was designed by a textile jewellery artist for textile jewellery artists with tremendous attention to consistency of width, thickness and drape so that rayon and polyester braid can be successfully combined. Polyester soutache is available in bright colors, and its sheen is slightly duller than that of the rayon. Rayon soutache is a semi-natural fiber – essentially re-processed cotton. It has more sheen and the colors are available in a more muted palette. Textured metallic soutache is a metallized polyester film with a nylon support.
A. No, not at all, the cuffs shown in this picture were made by our Director Juliet and were her first ever attempt at Soutache, she simply followed the instructions in the Soutache book that we sell and took a look at some You Tube videos!
Q.What is the purpose of Lacy’s Stiff Stuff and Beading Foundation?
A. Lacy’s Stiff stuff or Beading Foundation provides a nice firm backing to stitch or bead onto.
Q. What do you use the ultra suede and leather for?
A. You stick the ultra suede or leather to the back of your finished piece to provide a neat and professional looking finish or use it to cover one of our brass cuff bases.
