Red soutache earrings length 9 cm, width 4.5 cm and thickness 0.5 cm. The Soutache is a manual embroidery technique born in Eastern Europe that takes its name from a viscose ribbon (sujtas) originally used to sew the frogs of the military jackets. This ribbon or braid sewn together with stones, pearls and crystals allows you to create fantastic jewels, clasps, accessories and decorations for dresses.

The soutache technique has very ancient origins and takes us back to Eastern Europe, to Russia and Poland, at the time when the clothes of the Tsars were decorated. this technique first spread in France in 1900, then later also in Italy and was used to decorate the costumes of the film "Il gattopardo" by Luchino Visconti

The braid is joined by points with needle and thread made in such a way as to create a harmonious jewel in its form and where the points are not clearly visible.

All the earrings are made with high quality plates and the metal components are nickel free.
