The soutaches technique has undergone a great evolution over the years but has been able to maintain its original beauty qualities, proposing itself nowadays as a refined technique for the creation of jewels and jewellery from different invoices.

 

The soutaches technique is based mainly on the use of a viscose webbing, from which it takes its name-called sujats or saucer-which is worked to the art to accommodate stones and cabochons of all kinds and to give life jewels of every kind, from scenographic necklaces with delicious earrings.
