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.
When one item I ordered was unavailable they immediately contacted me offering something similar or a refund and were also willing to change something I had mistakenly ordered. Fast, helpful, efficient service and I'll be happy to shop with them again.

Service rating : The website is very clear and the service was quick. Items were very well packaged. This is the first time I have bought one of their beading kits and I am extremely happy with it. Product : The colours were just as illustrated and the items look to be high quality. The instructional YouTube that is available was excellent and made things clear

Great service and products. Would love to have a more eco option for packaging. Like paper bags or wee envelopes for the beads rather than plastic.
