Soutache is a decorative braid. Attaching it to a backing and embellishing it with cabochons, crystals, and beads, is a hot, trending technique—and this is the first English-language book dedicated to this fantastic, yet relatively easy craft. Anneta Valious describes the entire process, from sewing methods to making straps to finishing, and provides 30 projects that include necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets, barrettes, and more.

It’s the perfect guide for beaders, jewelry makers, and general crafters eager to expand their repertoire and take their designs to the next level.


“Stamping is an accessible craft with a low barrier for entry—crafters only need a medium to carve, a linoleum cutter or craft knife, ink, and something on which to stamp . . . The variety of artists ensures a reasonably diverse range of styles . . . Stamping isn’t just for scrapbookers, and this title will open crafters’ eyes to the potential for stamping fabric, wood, and even porcelain.” — Library Journal
