After a few years of following an online soutache jewellery class with Amee Sweet-McNamara, I made several pieces of soutache jewellery.  From the beginning my inspiration was to combine the soutache technique with Brazilian embroidery.  This is the result of my experiments.  For this design, I have chosen a flower inspired by Rosalie Wakefield with a slight modification.  Note:  Online discussions are in both English and French.
