 Soutache jewelry has been introduced to me just last week by a friend at the Fanpage, Tatiana Slezak.  According to Tatiana, Soutache is a kind of hand embroidery, which uses strips of viscose called soutache. The name of this technique comes from the French word soutache, meaning a type of braid sewn ornaments on military uniforms. Technique of decoration of the bars was already known in ancient China. Soutache found for this widely used in fashion.

Beautiful, isn’t it? It’s a lightweight piece of jewelry :)
Aside from making Soutache Jewelry Tatiana is also busy with her blog, Feminine Cafe where she talks about Books, Entertainment, Fashion (which includes her Soutache Jewelry from TatainaS Soutache Studio), Health, Napkin Notes (notes that will inspire you), and Self-development.
In real life Tatiana loves cafes. At cafes she meets people - beautiful women and talk about life and of course, girls’ stuffs. That’s why she created the blog Feminine Cafe where women from all over the world can meet, talk and share about girly stuff, talk about creativity and make beautiful changes in their lives. 
I believe we don’t have to personally meet people face to face to become friends. 
Cheers to Feminine Cafe! And thanks for the tutorial :)
