I have now learned the bitter and hard way, that no good things come when you rush and just want to make quick progress...Soutache is an excellent lesson in patience, planning ahead, precision and then, more patience! ;)
At first I found it hard to control the pesky little cords and make the line up perfectly, it does take a long time to get the right rhythm, but I now find it much easier to manipulate between crystals and pearls and beads...as I continue my journey with soutache I am finding new ways to use this material and it's just so much FUN!! :)
