Taming wild cords - part 2

Okay, after making the first soutache piece, I coudn't really stop too soon.That resulted in another pendant made with this technique. This time it took only something like 8 hours... and I didn't get enough sleep again last night. Looks like it's not really a technique for me. It is just too time-consuming, and my impatience simply doesn't allow me to stop in the middle of work and return to it the next day. So, either I will give up sewing, or I won't be sleeping at nights. Ah, sleep is a waste of time anyway. ;)

As it is only the second attempt at soutache, I didn't expect it to be perfect - and it certainly isn't  - still it looks a bit better for real than in the pictures. It is truly eye-catching though - and it will remain my new favourite pendant, at least until I make a new one. So, that means a couple of more days, I think. ;)

The pendant measures 6,5 x 5,5 cm (2,55 x 2,16") without the bail. Somehow it turned out to be the same size as the first one. That's the only thing they have in common though, as you can see from the pictures below. ;)

  7. This one looks almost like a pagoda or some exotic flower ... just lovely. I'm trying to avoid soutache, I have enough fiber-addictions as it is. My knitting feels so neglected when I'm beading all the time...
