Morning Coffee Earrings
Designed by: Beata
Sew back into soutache and to the felt (Please keep in mind to sew in the middle of the braid only. This will help to hide the thread. Color of the thread should match the soutache). Sew up from the back to the front close to the stone. Again, sew to the soutache in the middle of the braid. Sew back into the soutache in the middle of the braid and to the backing.
Repeat the above all around the cabochon. Don't use high tension or else your soutache will curl.
Pick up and thread on an acrylic bead and wrap five soutaches around the bead. Sew to the five soutaches making sure you got the soutaches to wrap around the bead neatly. Sew back into five soutaches, acrylic bead and into the first two layers. Pull the thread, again not too tight but quite firmly (this is the outside soutache, the stitch on the braids should be small and right in the middle of the braid. If your thread is the same color with your soutache, the thread should be almost invisible).
Now use your finger to hold tight the rest of soutaches in place at the back. Make sure the soutaches wrap around your bead beautifully. Sew to the five soutaches around the pearl counter clockwise direction.
Please note that this is on a curve. and the outside soutache should be longer than the inside soutache.
